5 Eco-friendly Ways To Declutter Your Home

March 4, 2020

Last updated on May 4th, 2020 at 10:14 am Three years ago, I went on a huge decluttering mission.  I had read Marie Kondo’s book and felt truly inspired to change my home for the better.  But I wanted eco-friendly ways to declutter.   I knew that this would mean that there would be many clothes, furnishings and other items that I would want to remove from my home.  I wasn’t happy with the idea that these would end up in a landfill.   Getting started with Konmari Follow the book.

5 Travel-Friendly Side Hustles You Can Do Around The World

March 2, 2020

Last updated on April 3rd, 2020 at 09:58 pm We are six months into our around the world trip.  Before we left we set a budget.  We knew how much we had and how far it needed to go.   However, we also knew that we could make money along the way too.  Back home, I had several side hustles and spent time nurturing those that I believe would be viable whilst we travelled.   What makes a travel-friendly side hustle? If you want to make money on the road then you’ve got to make sure that you have all the tools you need with you.   Any hustles that require you to manage physical goods is likely to be a challenge on the road.  Therefore, eBay reselling and craft goods will not work.   If you are dealing with digital products or have an established production system that runs…

February 24, 2020

Last updated on May 4th, 2020 at 09:09 am My family and I have been travelling the world on a budget for 6 months now.  More impressive is that we still have enough money left.   Over the last six months, we have gradually found our groove with this travelling lark.  With this comes a few lessons learnt and few items ditched.   We always knew that this was going to be a trip on a budget so we wanted to do whatever we could to keep the costs down.  There are five items that I recommend to anyone wanting to save money whilst travelling:   Small suitcase/backpack If you buy a giant suitcase, you will fill a giant suitcase.  It does matter how much you need when you have the space to fill you will fill it.   Therefore, it is great to start off with a small suitcase…

December 27, 2019

With 2020 just a couple of days away, many of us have started to think about our resolutions and goals.   If, like me, one of your goals for the New Year is work on those income streams and get the money flowing in then you might be on the lookout for new ways to make money.   This could be the time for you to get started on 20 Cogs and get yourself off to a good start by making a nice lump sum.   What is 20Cogs? 20Cogs pays you for signing up to competitions, offers, games or surveys.  It is similar to OhMyDosh but with a fun twist.   Rather than payout each time you complete an offer, you’ll get a big payout once you have completed 20 of them.  Hence 20 Cogs.   What sort of offers are there? Some are competitions or surveys.  Others are…
