About Andy

Hi there. I’m Andy Webb. And I’m a money-saving geek.

About Be Clever With Your Cash

I’m passionate about helping you with your finances. Every pound saved or made puts us on the path to financial freedom. And there are so many things we can do every day to get us closer to achieving our goals.

Through the blog, podcast and YouTube channel, I’ll show you that being clever with your cash isn’t about not spending or living a frugal life.

Instead it’s understanding the ways to avoid wasting cash, knowing where to find the best deals, and learning more about your relationship with money.

All of it should leave you with extra money in your pocket – what you do with it really depends on your personal relationship with cash. So whether you save it or spend it, I’ll give you tips and tools to make that going even further too!

I really do live and breathe what I write. If I’ve written about a way to be clever with your cash I’ve done it.

And I truly believe you can do all this without having to stop living your life!

About me

After spending most of my life in London and Kent I moved to North Yorkshire in 2018. When I’m not helping others (and myself) save money, I’m probably listening to BBC 6 Music, playing tennis, watching movies or eating a cake baked by my wife (The Weekend Bakery).

Prior to blogging, my background was in broadcasting. For more than a decade I worked in TV at the BBC on programmes such as The Money Programme, The Culture Show and Crimewatch.

In 2013 I moved to online financial journalism. First at the pioneering website MoneySavingExpert.com, then running the blog at The Money Advice Service from 2014 to 2018.

I set up Be Clever With Your Cash in 2014, going full-time on the blog in the summer of 2018. By May 2021 it has been visited by more than 5.5 million people and viewed almost 8 million times.

My ‘Cash Chats’ podcast launched in January 2017, growing into a twice-weekly show. In 2021 it was one of the top 1.5% most listened to podcasts in the world.

The ‘Andy Clever Cash’ YouTube channel launched properly in the summer of 2020 and is set to reach 10,000 subscribers in May 2021.

Media appearances & broadcasting

I was the resident money expert on Channel 5’s Shop Smart Save Money and have appeared on other programmes such as Right on the Money and Rip Off Britain on BBC One. I’m also a regular contributor to many BBC Radio stations and have been quoted in much of the national press.

This is alongside my monthly column for Reader’s Digest magazine and freelance articles for other publications. You can see my full list and details of how to work with me here.
