Please I'm really struggling with managing my stores speed.
At the minute its at an all time low with '24'.
I have added several apps in the past and removed them, I only have 3 apps at the moment.
I know i need to remove stuff from the codes of the store but I'm not educated in that area so I'm really struggling

Thank you for your help.
The big issue on your site, is there is a script making requests your /cart.js file every second, which is terrible for performance (see screenshot below).
It's coming from this script https://script.live.lit.cash//index.js?shop=twosins.myshopify.com. Do you know which app added this script? If you do, i'd recommend removing the app asap.
Feel free to reach out and we can do this for you, if you like.
Okay i have removed sed app, and ive re uploaded compressed/smaller sized pictures to hopefully let that increase performance.
I have very little knowledge about coding and im aware some apps add coding and they still stay even if you delete the app and this is something im worried about.
I've navigated through your site, and it's very clean and performant. That's awesome!
It's also great that you've deleted any apps you no longer need. These can definitely have a big impact on performance. I know you mentioned that you're aware app code may be left behind in your theme, but you aren't comfortable enough to go through your code. That's perfectly understandable and a smart move.

Beyond that, I wouldn't correlate your Shopify Speed or Page Speed Insights (PSI) scores directly to page speed. It's kind of misleading, but many other factors go into these scores beyond raw page speed and loading times. You actually have a pretty decent score. The average Shopify Speed Scores we come across range between 15-30. So you're towards the top end of that average.
Here are a few articles we wrote that talk about the relation between Shopify's Speed Score/PSI and your Shopify website:
In short, since your site is performing well and there isn't much that can be done, I wouldn't strip any necessary apps/functionality from your site just to try and chase a higher score.
I hope this was helpful!
Nice job on removing the app! I can see https://script.live.lit.cash//index.js?shop=twosins.myshopify.com is removed from your your pages and requests for /cart.js are no longer occurring.
Also on PSI your scoring 98 on desktop and 81 on mobile, which is very good! Is it the same on your Shopify store? Keep in mind it does take a little while for the Shopify speed score to update.
Regarding changing .scss to .css, there is a performance benefit but not major. Also depending on the way you setup the scss file changing it to css could require some modification. I think your next priority should be optimising your images, your product page image files are quite big is 244KB = https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0555/7069/4335/products/tee-model-shots-black_1024x1024.jpg?v=1623235541
