Overcoming the cost of living.

Hey readers, 

We all know that the cost of living affects everyone. The pinch can be felt,t especially when you have to pay the bills and food.

Overcoming the cost of living.

Here are some innovative ways to save on your household finances.

1. Turn down your thermostat

Heating and hot water expenses account for over half of total energy bill prices. You might save up to £80 a year by reducing the heat in your home by just one degree.

 A 17-degree drop in temperature on your thermostat can make a huge difference. Before turning on the heating, putting on clothes and blankets can also help ward off the cold. 

Here are additional suggestions to keep you warm this winter, including insulating your home and making traditional hot beverages.

Also, there are a lot of incentives available to you to assist with growing energy costs. 

This year, households might receive as much as £350 to help with rising energy costs. The Warm House Discount Plan is another option, and it might save you £140 on your winter electricity bill.

In cases where existing benefits are insufficient to cover housing costs, local authorities may grant claimants a discretionary, constrained, and temporary housing payment.

2. Look around for the best gas prices.

With fuel costs rising, use comparison tools like's Petrol Price Comparison Tool to find the best deal in your neighbourhood.

 This tool allows you to look up nearby gas stations and their fuel prices. You can ensure you always receive the most terrific deal when filling up at the pump by utilising this tool. 

When making lengthy car trips, try to prepare ahead and avoid purchasing petrol at highway service stations because they typically impose an extra fee.

3. Grow your own. 

Develop your own: Growing food for one person is more straightforward than for a large family. Put a £1.50 Wilko Italian leaf grow bucket on your windowsill to start growing salad greens.

4. Check up on your subscriptions. 

It is essential to consider the subscriptions and services you already use and pay for monthly or annually. It can be very economical to cancel the ones you no longer use.

Requesting your bank statement and reviewing each standing order that leaves your account is a practical approach to accomplish this.
You may save hundreds of pounds a year by cancelling even a few.

5. Food shopping bills.
One of the most significant expenses you must factor into your budget is your food purchasing. 

You could find it simpler to cope with rising food prices by looking for methods to save money.

 Prepare and cook your meals to save money because they are typically less expensive and healthier than takeout or prepared foods.

Create a shopping list for any necessary items and a weekly meal plan using the ingredients you already have on hand.

 Shopping online can also help you save money. Saving money can also be achieved by batch cooking and selecting vegetables over meat and seafood.

Have I missed any good money-saving tips to help with the cost of living?

How to make money from home

Hey readers,

Many people will look for ways to increase their income in 2023. Below I have devised seven ideas for making some extra money this year.

How to make money from home

1. Dog walking. 

A dog walking business can be the perfect side gig for someone who loves pets. It takes a few hours out of your day and is an excellent way to earn money while getting some extra exercise.

Even some well-known apps enable you to locate those looking for a dog walker rapidly. To find out what's available in your area, check out Rover and PawShake. Take a closer look at how to launch a dog walking service after researching and identifying demand in your neighbourhood.

2. Make money online with micro-jobs. 

If you don't have specialised skills, one of the finest ways to earn money online without investment in 2023 is through micro-jobs. You only need rudimentary internet knowledge and occasionally solid analytical skills for microtasks.

You can earn money by doing simple things like joining a newsletter, liking something on Facebook, or Tweeting at websites that provide Micro Jobs.

Additionally, several Micro Job websites list positions that need analytical abilities. You will be required to categorise products on various websites, find information online, assess the tone of tweets, gather data from a document or an invoice, etc.

Micro Jobs can be found on several websites. However, the two websites listed below are well-liked for finding micro-employment. Amazon Inc. Micro workers use Amazon Mechanical Turk or Mturk.
Because Amazon Inc. runs it, Amazon Mechanical Turk is regarded as the best of the websites above. For citizens of some nations, however, there may be restrictions on signing up with Amazon Mechanical Turk.

To increase your earning potential, you should register with Microworkers regardless of your ability.

3. Rent stuff. 

If you're not using it, rent it out. It might be your extra room or even your driveway. You might earn several thousand pounds more per year as a result.

Using websites like YourParkingSpace and, drivers can charge other road users for using their driveways. You should inform your mortgage provider if you own your house and want to rent a room. Make careful to seek your landlord's approval if you rent your home. With the Rent a Room program, you may make up to £7,500 per year tax-free by renting out your room.

4. Cashback. 

Cashback websites give you money back when you make purchases online, as you can guess from the name. Two of the most well-known are TopCashback and Quidco, where you can occasionally make hundreds.

Make sure to click through the websites while you shop to get extra money. You can get widgets for both, so you always remember. Although they are free, you may upgrade to a plus membership for £5 per year to receive a higher return.

5. Online surveys. 

Online surveys are a well-liked technique for people to earn money in their leisure time. To participate in surveys and test new products, research organisations are constantly looking for additional participants globally.

You can easily earn a couple of pounds for a few minutes of form filling, which is given as cash or prizes. For some surveys, you might earn up to £3 ($5).

OnePoll, i-Say, Opinion Outpost, YouGov, Prizerebel, Marketagent, InboxPounds, Valued Opinions, The Opinion Panel, Mingle, Opinion Bureau, Maru Voice, Panel Base, Y Live, and Survey Junkie are a few worthwhile options to consider.

6. Share your skills. 

Several online websites can help you earn money in your leisure time using your skills. For instance, if you're good at DIY, you could use Taskrabbit to become a "tasker." The website connects individuals with time and expertise to those who need help with odd jobs. You can also utilise websites like Fiverr to advertise an online service, such as graphic design expertise.

7. Review music for cash. 

If you love music, you might jump at the possibility of getting paid to write about undiscovered performers.
You can accomplish that, thanks to Slicethepie

There is no restriction on the number of artists you can review, and users get compensated according to the calibre of their ratings.

Why you should start a mummy blog in 2023

Hey readers, 

Are you contemplating creating a mum blog but unsure whether you should go for it?

Why you should start a mummy blog in 2023

Here are the top five reasons why you should start a mummy blog right away. Mummy blogs have recently become a powerful force on the internet.

1. Sharing your experiences. 

Mothers have unique ideas and methods of accomplishing things. As mothers of developing children, you gain new knowledge every day. 

What better platform than your blog to share the lessons you've picked up and your experiences as a blogger? You will expand your audience and pick up fans that care about you and the information you give. 

You can interact and connect with other mummy bloggers who are on the same path as you and share your struggles by blogging. It's not just a way to express yourself.

2. Provide a creative outlet for yourself. 

Each of us possesses a creative quality that sets us apart. We all have a creative side to us, whether it be through writing, drawing, painting, sewing, or making items

The chance to see all of the imaginative concepts other mothers come up with motivates me to keep writing and producing material.

3. To strengthen your writing skills.
Beginning a blog, you may have limited writing skills.

Beginning off can be unpleasant and even strange at first. Yet, you'll find that writing becomes easier as you get into the swing of things. You'll be able to speak more effectively, and you'll create a style that is entirely your own.

You'll gain a solid understanding of what people respond to if you write frequently. 

This challenges your creativity and encourages you to write about topics readers enjoy. Thus, there will be a larger audience.

4. Earn extra income. 

A blog can generate income in several ways, including through advertising, affiliate marketing, guest blogging on other sites, and paid newspaper columns. 

A deal with a book publisher may be achievable if your blog gains popularity among readers.

5. You don't need to leave home

A blog may be started without a Degree, an office, or a small business loan, which appeals mainly to women who are searching for additional income streams so they can stay at home with their kids. 

It's a job they can do during their children's naps or while they are away at school, and it enables women like me who have left the workforce to raise a family to feel like a part of the tech age always helpful when your days are filled with nappies, dishes, and drool.

Mum bloggers only need a little additional money to pay for football lessons or a family; they don't have to quit their day jobs or earn enough money to support themselves.

Easter chocolate bark recipe.

 Hey readers, 

A perfect kid's activity to do during the Easter holidays is to make Easter chocolate bark, as it is so easy to do. 

The ingredients you will need. 

🐰4 bars of chocolate (I used three milk and one white). The fourth one was to cover the edges of the tray. 

🐰Malteser bunnies.

🐰Mini eggs. 


🐰Parchment paper. 


1. Cover the tray with Parchment paper.

2. Place the chocolate in the tray. I placed 3 bars in a line and used the four to cover the empty edges of the tray. 

3. Put the oven on a 45c fan and place the chocolate in the oven for 15 minutes; this allows the chocolate to go soft. 

4. Get the chocolate out of the oven. Use a stick and swirl the chocolate around gently so it looks like a marble effect. 

5. Place the Malteser bunnies onto the chocolate. 

6. Put the mini eggs and dot them on the chocolate. 

7. Sprinkle the sprinkles all over the chocolate. 

8. Place the chocolate in the fridge to set for 2 hours. 

9. Collect the chocolate from the fridge, and remove the chocolate from the parchment paper onto a board. 

10. Use your hands to break bits off; it doesn't have to be perfect, but random shapes and sizes.

There you have your delicious chocolate Easter treat 🐰 🍫
