Or falling out over Mac lipgloss vs Rimmel because she refuses to understand the value of money. 

To Uni or not to Uni that is a question...

Depending on what bit of research you read, raising a child from birth to age 18 costs from £150k to £200k which can be in the region of £900 a month!

Reduce your houshold bills

Eye rolling & groaning, it's that time of year again.

Yep, it's the day you spend on the phone to various retention departments saying, well bye then I'm off unless you can give me a deal that you give new customers!

This advice to haggle is a great one, but my god it's a ball ache isn't it?

I chose some years ago to pool my main bills into one account, with one login, one direct debit once a month.

They can give me fantastic discounts because they roll 4 services into one, one set of overheads not 4.

How refreshing.
