Everywhere I look online, one of the keys to wealth is investing. There’s no other way around it; you need to invest to build wealth and reach your goals.   But I have a confession: investing scares me.    It scares me immensely! I have done lots of reading around investing, looked at various different …
Me and my husband have got various savings goals at the moment – some short term and some more long term – and I think it’s very important to have savings goals. We’re currently looking at re-doing our bathroom  as it needs completely gutting and done from scratch as the previous owners did a DIY …
I’ve had a lovely week this week. It started with us spending some time with my parents – it’s always nice to see them. I also did a car boot last weekend and I got £53 for some of my stuff which I was pleased with. The rest of the things I didn’t sell have …
One of the reasons why I love blogging so much is that I like to get to know the people behind the blogs. What do they like, what do they dislike, what would they do on a Sunday afternoon if they had their way; everything that makes a person who they are. So, I thought …

Another week is over. It’s been a strange week for us; we got back from our vacation at the start of the week and have been catching up with things since. We’ve also been having lie ins and generally taking things a bit more easy, which has been nice. I was also saddened by the …
Me and my husband have just got back from an amazing trip in Canada and America (more on that in another post!) and it has made me question some of our priorities and what’s important. This is a somewhat reflective post.   When interested in finance and having multiple goals around money, it’s easy to …
Whilst I was at university, I sold quite a few things on Ebay to create some extra income during the term, including one where I needed the extra money quickly as I’d run out. I did quite well in terms of selling items quickly and getting positive feedback, so I thought I’d share some tips …
In most of the financial blogs I read, their owners have multiple income streams. They don’t always share specific numbers, but they all talk about their various streams of income. I want part of the action! Which is why I’m looking at multiple income streams.   The most obvious reason for this is that I …
One of the things that makes my life much easier is that my husband is just as interested and focused about finances as I am. He is always searching to get the best deals on things we want to buy, looks at the offers in the supermarkets for me and generally is another frugal person. …
