Monzo: The future of banking?

May 2, 2019

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?

12 Things You Can Make Yourself And Save Money

March 15, 2019
make yourself and save

In my quest for frugal living, I learnt quite quickly that many items I was buying in shops could be made more cheaply at home.   Some of these were easy switches.  I already had some skills to make these items and the materials to make them.  Others required some research or learn a new skill, but in the long term, saved me lots of money.   I have compiled a list of these items so that you can make them yourself and save money too.  Some might work for you, others might not. Can’t read it now?  Pin it for later! Greeting Cards In recent years, I have had a bit of an issue with things that I buy that get thrown away almost instantly.  Although, some cards I have kept from special people or special events the majority just end up on the recycling pile.   For this…

This is an area that I’ve talked about before.  In the past, I’ve made some choices that others would consider too far.  I’ve also talked to my fellow UK money bloggers about the most extreme frugal steps they’ve taken.   As we go into the new year many of us will be setting resolutions or making promises to ourselves.  For many, myself included, this will involve improving your finances.  Whether you are struggling with debt or chasing financial independence there is space for extreme frugality in your life. Can’t read it now?  Pin it for later! What Does Extreme Frugality Mean? This is a hard question to answer.  If I asked my parents this, they’d say one holiday a year rather than their usual eleventy billion.  For us, it is about finding the cheapest ways to live our lives comfortably.   Extreme frugality is about analysing every area of your…
