Remember 2008 when the markets crashed? That was actually caused by a huge portion of people living on credit and living past their means. Unfortunately, in 2017 there is evidence it’s happening again. People are racking up debts on credit cards, going on holidays that they haven’t paid for and buying home furniture they can’t afford. It’s a dangerous situation, but it’s really the tip of the iceberg when looking at the causes of debt. Like any iceberg, the true danger remains hidden, underneath the surface. You might think that medical bills could never drive you into debt. On…

When we invite people over to our homes, we want to make a good impression. This could mean simple things, like cleaning the front garden up of all those leaves, cleaning our windows of all the detritus and debris that appears every day, or something even like ensuring the children’s toys are not hanging around underneath the bookcase and sofa and are put away neatly and tidy, in their place. We all like to think that our homes are in perfect condition, are not messy and look elegant and modern but – obviously – sometimes that is not the case,…

We’ve seen it all too often before how a new piece of technology bursts onto the scene as the next biggest thing to perhaps even institute an entire paradigm shift in the way in which we interact with our world, only for that hot new piece of tech to die a quick death and fizzle out as just another one of those which failed to take off properly. I’d guess it’s the tech world’s version of Mother Nature’s natural selection process because quite honestly, a lot of what is called technology these days isn’t really technology in the scientific sense…

There are some moments in one’s life defined by a specific sort of ‘enlightening’ event during which you just suddenly understand what someone with whom you previously interacted with has had to deal with in their lives, like one of your school teachers perhaps, or even your uni lecturers. That’s that moment when you can almost literally see the satisfaction filling up inside of them when they witness one of their students go through that “ah-ah” moment — that moment when the light which they’ve been trying to turn on finally switches on. As someone who preaches wise spending habits,…

This is something that is a little out of leftfield for my blog but, it still relates and it also helps that I’m a fresh out of Uni student and planning to go on my very own budget travel trip around Europe. I’ve saved since I started this blog and I’m getting a good way toward hitting my savings goal but I’ll only hit my target come January (if my calculations and predictions are correct) so I’ll be booking and hoping to get on the plane come February. However, I can’t keep this trip quiet anymore, obviously, all my friends…

Your home is your haven, and from the moment you moved in, you’ll probably have been planning ways to improve it. You’ll want it to be a place where you can kick back and relax at the end of the day, surrounded by pleasing décor and a vibe that suits your personality. It needs to provide the necessary space, storage, and fittings that you require, whilst remaining aesthetically attractive and individual. Yet savvy homeowners know that it’s not all about taking your personal preferences into consideration. Although some people may stay in their first home for the rest of their…

The fact that you have a limited student’s budget which could never realistically afford you one of those modern houses you dream of shouldn’t stop you from dreaming about modern living though. With some creative interior decorating, bargain-hunting and arrangement hacks, you can enjoy living in a contemporary-styled apartment even on your student’s budget. The Building is Only Part of the Equation You’re likely renting if you’re still a student living on a student’s budget, but if you’re staying in your own private apartment as opposed to the university’s residences, no matter what architectural style the building is in, you…

The life of a student is all about focussing all your resources, efforts and attentions on one goal, which is studying towards getting whatever qualification you’re chasing. Pretty much every other area of your life suffers, despite it being constantly preached that you need to strike some sort of balance.One of these areas in life which suffers the most is your finances, unless you’re one of those rare breeds of rich students. So in your efforts to save as much money as you can on what is probably an already very meagre student’s budget, one of the avenues through which…

Being forced to live on a student’s budget has its upsides (believe it or not), in that it provides a physical lesson in the real value of money. You learn all manner of ways through which to stretch every last pound and squeeze every bit of value out of every situation you can.The savings as a result come in a number of different forms, from catching the free bus to and from campus which only operates at certain hours of the day, right up to walking a couple of blocks just so that you can buy your supplies from a…
