9 Tips for Negotiating a Better Sky Package

Just the other day I was checking some of our bills and one that caught my eye was the Sky bill; it was more expensive than I remembered it being. After a quick check on our online account, I realised that our current deal was over and it was time to renegotiate. We have managed to okay deals in the past but nothing amazing. I had heard of certain packages and prices that other people had and they were A LOT better than ours. So, I took to Facebook to ask some other bloggers to share 9 tips for negotiating

How to earn over £125 a year only using your phone

Along with keeping this blog, I also do a lot of other things online. One site that I joined quite a long time ago now was Swagbucks. I don’t do nearly as much on it as I used to but I do use it as a staple to earn some extra cash every month. Today I’m going to show you how to earn over £125 a year only using your phone.   To put it quite simple, I’m really lazy with Swagbucks now and I don’t earn very much from it, even though I could if I put in some more

It takes work but there are different things you can do to boost your credit score or even get it going to begin with. 1. Register to Vote I didn’t actually know that this had such an impact until recently. Not only could not be registered to vote affect your credit score but it could stop you getting credit altogether.

Debt: Friend or Foe?

No matter who you are, there is nothing enjoyable about owing money. Yet there are hugely varying degrees to which extent debt can weigh you down, if at all. For some, it can be crippling, and make it a struggle to keep your head above water. But in other cases, it can be perfectly normal, and even a great enabler.

The same is true of something like car finance, while

How to make the most of your local Facebook selling sites

Earlier on this month I posted about my goals for the year. I desperately want to declutter the house and work through selling the mass of ‘stuff’ I seem to have accumulated somehow. I have a spare bedroom full of stuff, Erin’s travel cot has been taken over by things to sell and I have random boxes all over as well. I tend to stay away from eBay if I can because the fees and listing time really bloody annoys me. I live on Facebook and I make use of the local ‘Facebay’ type selling sites. I have sold probably hundreds of
