Consumer Credit Reporting – Why Does it Matter to You?

Posted in Credit Crunch, Loans, Money Saving on Friday, November 13th, 2009 at 12:12 by Sarah Evans.

At least 4 or 5 times per week I receive an advert from a credit reporting company advising me about my credit rating. The e-mails vary from a free trial to such and such a programme to warnings about how my credit rating has been breached or tampered with in some way. Of course, about 99% of these warnings are bogus.

I think there are some grave misconceptions about energy prices. Rather, on how to save on monthly energy bills. We all know that energy costs have risen and will continue to rise. I won’t go off on a rant about the falsehoods regarding supply and demand; rather, I would like to point out how you can save money. Unless you’re in the political arena or energy related industries in some way then you most likely aren’t aware of the day to day prices of energy related products. I know I’m not. Regardless, what you can do is to learn how the system works and find the best way for you to run an efficient household and/or business.

No Need to go to the Pub

I talked to a friend earlier this evening who lamented that there was no place to buy beer on Sunday night. It got me thinking about those who choose to brew their own beer and how much easier it is these days. I’ve known people to set up home breweries, often in a garage or basement because of the smell. These mysterious brewers were always men that tended to their projects like a mother tends to a small child. The result was hit or miss in some cases. I would never be the one to take the first drink. If you’re ever in this situation, it’s best to take someone along who is brave or not terribly bright.

I don’t know about you but there are times when I am positively busted and count the minutes until I get my hands on my next paycheque. It’s especially hard since I get paid about once a month. Although I am better about that, there are still times when unforeseen expenses come up and wreck even the most carefully laid plans.
