Turn your phone habit into freebie hunting

I developed a bad habit of always being on my phone, just to pass the time or diverting my boredom. I find it therapeutic sometimes and that’s how I discovered a lot of things online that could turn into something more productive. I endlessly surf the internet searching or watching videos being shared in Facebook. I feel that my habit is such a waste of time for nothing so i thought I have to use it for something useful which is bargain and freebie hunting.

Who doesn’t love freebies anyway? It’s fun and exciting just to get a free stuff in the post. It’s like receiving a gift which is lovely.

I have discovered many freebie website and starting receiving free samples which is a great reward for my time. I don’t feel so  guilty about being on my phone anymore since I turn them into something sensible.  Continue reading “Turn your phone habit into freebie hunting”

Get in Good Habits and Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

With summer well on the way, it can be easier to save money on bills around the home. You can dry your laundry outside, and there isn’t a need to have your heating on. You use fewer lights in the daytime, and might even use less gas for things like cooking. So it is can be easy to get forgetful about ways to cut the costs of our bills at home. But if we establish some bad habits in summer, then it can lead to us carrying on that way when the cooler temperatures come back. So what are some good habits to get into, to take care of our home, as well as keep costs down? Here are some ideas for you.

Top tips on saving for a holiday.

Going for a holiday outside the uk can be a bit expensive, especially for a family of 5 like us. We love to go to our native country, the Philippines, as much as we can. We can only afford to go for a holiday to the Philippines every few years since the tickets are very expensive. We’ve went there last year so going for a holiday again this year is out of the plan.

However, my husband was checking prices everyday and took advantage an offer. We are going in August which means there is only a few months left for us to save for our holiday. Continue reading “Top tips on saving for a holiday.”

Things To Do To Your Home This Summer That You’ll Appreciate In Winter

Okay, so summer hasn’t even arrived yet (will it ever), and winter is already being discussed. However, it’s worth thinking about the things you can do in your home during the warmer (here’s hoping) months, ensuring your house is in the best shape it can be when the days get shorter, and you’re searching for the hot water bottle.

Declutter

Tidy home, tidy mind (is that how the saying goes?). A spring, or summer, in this case, clean automatically refreshes your house and lifts the spirits of everyone living in it. If you’re having a thorough clear out (we’re talking gutting the garage and organising the loft), then the last thing you want to be doing is traipsing in and out the house with boxes and bin bags in the freezing cold. So pick a dry and mild day to get all the heavy lifting done, and why not organise a car boot sale, so all that effort literally pays off.

When the colder months hit, you’ll be clutter free, and the house will be a pleasure to be in, after all, you’re more likely to be staying inside during winter. For decluttering inspiration, take a look here: http://www.goodhousekeeping.co.uk/lifestyle/declutter-your-home/decluttering-tips-spring-cleaning.

Improve

The summer is the best time to get any DIY or home improvements done; as you’d have to be brave to decide on having your roof refitted during January (brrr). Summer is a smart time to check that the outside of your house is well maintained, so ensure your gutters are clear, and all your roof tiles are still up there, you don’t want to be dealing with leaks and damp throughout winter.

If you’re thinking of home improvements inside the house, again, when it’s warmer outside, it’s better to get them completed; especially if it’s related to the plumbing (although there’s nothing more refreshing than a cold shower in mid-December). So, if you’re planning to refit the bathroom, add some underfloor heating, or change your radiators, get the professionals in now; before it gets too cold.

Every household will use less energy when it’s warmer; so it’s always a great time to check if you can get a better deal on your utility bills. It’s a highly competitive market, where everyone is fighting for your business by offering the lowest rates; so don’t be lazy and just stick to what you know, there are plenty of resources out there to help you find a better deal than what you’re currently paying for your gas and electric. If you choose to change your energy provider this summer, try and find a fixed rate that will see you through winter, and save you money in the meantime.

Getting ready for winter during the summer months might sound depressing, but it doesn’t have to be! Cleaning and improving your house will only make it a more pleasurable place to live in, whatever the season. And there’s never a fun time to sort out household bills; but if you get on top of them before it gets cold, you’ll worry less when you’ve accidentally left the heating on all night.

Making Money On The Side? A Hustle, Not A Hassle

You might have heard the term ‘side hustle’ a lot more these days – and for good reason. There are plenty of opportunities for people with talents, ingenuity or a good work ethic to earn a bit of cash on the side, or to top up their earnings.

Earning cash on the side of your full-time role to supplement your earnings or doing a bunch of smaller opportunities is a great way to get some bucks for a rainy day. Especially so when a lot of these opportunities can be fun!

Think about it – if you’ve got skills as a writer, would you rather write articles, blog posts, essays or creative pieces or would you rather sit down and do some data entry at your day job? It depends on what you enjoy, but if you have the skills, you must have the interest – no? These side opportunities are ways to make good cash in areas that you genuinely enjoy.
