May 16, 2019
how to make money with manifest

This is a collaborative post with MNFST.   You know me, I love making money.  I’ve made money on holiday, I’ve made money from my stuff and I particularly love making money when sat on my sofa.   Therefore, I am excited to tell you that you can now make money from your social media accounts AND you don’t need to have a massive following.   What is MNFST?

Natural Deodorant? Try Earth Conscious

A few years ago, I realised that I was having some issues with standard deodorants.  Mostly that they were giving me itchy armpits.   I’m a sensitive little flower and it is not the first time that I’ve had skin related problems.  But it did prompt me to investigate some alternatives.   On my hunt for a deodorant that was kinder on the skin, I learnt that “normal” ones aren’t that good for you.  Plus, there are plenty of healthier and more eco-friendly solutions on the market.   After trying a few options, including a couple of homemade disasters, I found Earth Conscious deodorants and I’ve been a loyal and happy customer ever since.   What is special about Earth Conscious deodorant? Earth Conscious natural deodorant works differently from other deodorants.  It is not an antiperspirant so you will still sweat, but it does stop bacteria from forming.  This is…

Making Money in an Eco-friendly Way

Making Money in an Eco-friendly Way

This is a guest post from Jon at The Money Shed As a kid growing up I’ll be honest and say I didn’t really care much about the environment. In fact, I would say the first time I got introduced to that showed the damage that could be done to our planet was probably watching the Captain Planet cartoon on a Saturday morning! As an adult, things in my life are a bit different. I have a house full of energy saving lightbulbs, a new energy efficient boiler, we’ve stopped taking plastic bags in with our weekly Tesco online delivery and I’ve ever bought myself a refillable mug to use when I work out of a cafe! My name is Jon and I run a website called The Money Shed. It’s the UK’s largest community website dedicated to earning money from home and with over 7000 members and over 145,000 posts on…

How to Make Money on Holiday [AD]

May 7, 2019

I love holidays!  Spending some time with the family and enjoying some warmer weather is one of life’s joys.   But if you are majorly into your side hustles, or self-employed, a holiday can cost you more than flights, a hotel and a few sangrias.  It could cost you an income stream while you are away too.   Fear not!  I have a handy list of ideas to show you how to make money on holiday without leaving your sun lounger. Rent out your car When we go abroad most of us will drive our cars to the airport, then pay to leave them there for the duration of our trip.   ForestCar has a clever solution to this.   Rather than paying astronomical fees to park your car with them, ForestCar provide secure parking at Manchester Airport for free. This means that not only do you save on parking…

Monzo: The future of banking?

May 2, 2019
Monzo

I’m a little bit in love with Monzo!  I signed up to this bank to claim a free £5 for doing so.  I figured I’d get my free money then move on.  However, their amazing app had me sold instantly.   When I started to read more about them, I found out that they do a lot of good too.  I genuinely think that they could be a strong contender for the future of banking.   Whether you are being extremely frugal or trying to make money, I strongly believe that Monzo will be able to help you achieve your goals.   Who are Monzo? Monzo are an app-based bank that started in 2015.  You can manage all of your money through the app on your phone and you’ll be joining 35,000 other people that open an account with them EVERY WEEK.   How to sign up with Monzo? You…
