A TIGHT dad puts his heating on once a week and makes his family wear head-torches to save cash.
Chavdar Todorov, 53, took the drastic decision when his energy bills doubled to £320 a month.
It means he, wife Moda, 49, and kids Nicole, 20, and Teo, 14, keep warm by wrapping up in coats and blankets.
And the head-torches mean he can keep his lights off as much as possible.
Banker and part-time decorator Chavdar, of Barnet, North London, said: Its like were back in the 18th century.
“We dont know what the bill is going to be so were doing everything we can.
I can now wear the head-torch and get around without switching on the lights.
Were reducing our TV watching and only having it on sometimes.
Yoga teacher Moda said: Were trying to think positive but its hard.
