She said: “So they reckon it costs £2.50 per shower after the 1st October.
“Get yourself a gym membership – even if you hate the gym.
£25 a month, you can come down, it’s 9:30pm now, I’ve come down, had a shower, washed my hair, put my pyjamas on.
“Save on bills at home for £25 a month – bargain”.

However, TikTok users were left divided at Karen’s money-saving idea.
While some thought it was a great tip and a good way to save money on bills, others pointed out that gyms tend to be slightly more expensive than this and the cost of driving back and forth to the gym would in fact add to the costs.
One person commented: “I work at a gym that has the BEST cleanest showers and it’s sooo worth it”.
A second noted: “Smart”.
A third stated: “Good advice”.
One user admitted: “I’m already doing this”.
However, one user said: “I couldn't bring myself to walk through the reception in my pyjamas” to which Karen replied “I hear you, no shame from me though”.
Another added: “I know I couldn’t leave my house to do it, too lazy. Good idea though”.

Someone else questioned: "Where are you that can get a gym membership for £25?! cheapest I could get anywhere within a 90 min drive was £40” to which Karen explained “I guess it depends where in the country you live, I also get NHS discount on mine”.
