OK. Here are a few tips:

Be a savings tart (move your money around when the deals end). Cash is less of a hassle to move than ISAs with less risk of losing interest due to delays so this is ok.

Ensure you know who/what your bank or build soc is - ie how much are you covered for under the compensation scheme. A few of them are within the same group.

There are others who would suggest things like lending money to other people (via websites), not for me but perhaps something you could look at.
