Credit Cards – Choices & Chances to Save

Posted in Credit Cards, Shopping on Wednesday, April 29th, 2009 at 11:06 by Sarah Evans.

I don’t know about you but I work hard for my money and I’d like to keep as much as I can. Because of that, I’m willing to do what I can to save as much as possible on big purchases and perhaps more importantly, on the interest rates I pay on loans and credit cards. A few percentage points may not seem like a lot but when you sit down and do the sums, those few points can tot up to be hundreds if not thousands of pounds.

I love to cook. However, there are many days when I don’t have time to prepare something or even go to the supermarket. There are other times when it would be nice if someone would just do it for me. We can’t give you a personal shopper or chef but we may be able to help anyway.

Hot New Diet?

Some people will try anything to lose weight. Grapefruit, low carbs, no carbs, nothing but cabbage…not to mention the millions of drugs on the market. A California man pushed all of that aside and seems to have found the latest thing – the McDonald’s diet.

Watch the cost of your Utilities…

Posted in Money Saving, Utilities on Thursday, April 23rd, 2009 at 10:09 by Sarah Evans.

Once upon a time, you were stuck with whatever utilities companies serviced your neighbourhood, and those companies often had a complete lock on the market. Over the past few years, consumers in most areas have been given the opportunity to choose their own providers. For those who have been savvy enough to do the research, thousands of pounds have been saved over the course of a year. Those who were too busy or overwhelmed by the task were often stuck paying whatever they were billed each month. No more!
