Are we just starting to see the first peeks of Spring in the air? Have you been working from home with the heating on all Winter? The energy bills sure do rack up don’t they?
We’ve recently moved from a nicely insulated new build in to a drafty 100yr old house so all winter we have had one eye on the energy bill as it certainly is worry for a lot of us working from home so here are few more money saving tips…..
Another day, another post on how to save money right? But lets face it, we are all saving our pennies now where we can in the hopes we can spend them all in the summer on holidays, pub trips, weekends away and shopping in actual real life shops. Ah what memories!
One thing I have had to spend a lot more money on is printing stuff at home. I am firmly in the ‘print this at work’ camp so now I’ve had to print things myself, I am resenting every single Amazon Return slip I print out!!
But here are some more little ways to save money that you probably haven’t thought of yet!
We’ve recently moved house and lord let me tell you what an expensive process that is. All those little niggly bits and pieces add up but we have managed to offset the expenses by making choices at home to save money.
We used Enviroclothes very handy doorstep collection service to get rid of all our old clothes that we didn’t need any more and instead of paying the Council to come and collect furniture we didn’t need and couldn’t take to the tip, we listed them on Facebook Marketplace and sold it on to people who came to collect, both of which saved us time and expense of getting rid of things and made us some extra cash in the process.
It’s 2020, the year of lockdowns, furloughs and the side hustle. Whether it’s selling your art work, to dog walking or setting up that catering business you’ve always dreamed of, it’s important to keep your hard earned hustle cash sorted and safe.
I am a bit guilty of over complicating my side-hustle and trying to keep up an Admin schedule that would put the HMRC to shame.
I could do with some of these tips myself, to simplify running my business!
I’m a firm believer in trying new things, from food to music to books and travel. Whilst I am always looking for that new experience or skill to learn, I do have my trusty “can do” list. We aim to visit a new place regularly whether it is near or far – you know where love a road trip here at Lady from a Tramp! Professionally, I push myself to learn or develop a new skill every 3 months at work so I can put it to use for the rest of the year.
