When you take out any insurance policy, you get the quote for the basic insurance and then you are offered add-ons as extras. To be on the safe side, most people usually tick them, ‘just in case’…. But there is one motor/car insurance add-on which you really don’t need to pay for anymore because of an innovative offering on the market which offers free car legal insurance.

It’s been a good week for being unintentionally thrifty! Here are my five fabulously frugal things for this week: September is the anniversary of when we moved in to our home so a lot of renewals fall around now. Our home insurance was quoted to go up by a ridiculous amount because we made a claim this year but I managed to get a much reduced premium with Legal & General ...

After my previous article talking about what happens if you die without a Will, I have a guest post written by Tim Hewson from LegalWills.co.uk detailing the different approaches you can take if you are now wondering ‘how can I write my will’? Have a Will in place Most people know that they should have a Will in place by the time they die, but the general consensus is that about 60% ...

Pocket money app for today’s digital children : Rooster Money Our girls set up a McDonalds shop last weekend whilst we were doing a BBQ; they wanted to sell the burgers to us for coins for their piggy bank! The menu and price list were pinned to a chair and they had set up the counter, when my five-year old looked at daddy seriously and said ‘we need to tell the ...

The last few months in the childcare sector have been dominated by the words ’30 hours’. Across the country, the ‘dirty 30’, as it has been nicknamed by those of us in the industry, has caused countless sleepless nights for many. It has necessitated an overhaul of offerings across the board from childminders through to large scale nursery operations. Nurseries, pre-schools and childminders across the country have now made their decision ...

What happens if you die without a will? Death and writing a will are not things I think about on a regular basis. Luckily. But it amazes me when I read requests for will writing recommendations on parenting forums. Mainly because these requests appear frequently. If you are a parent, well if you are anyone but especially so if you are a parent, you can not afford not to have a will. ...

We’ve been homeowners now for almost five years. When we moved back to the UK from Australia in 2012 we promptly set about finding a place for our new little family to live. We bought during the post-crash property market and we’ve enjoyed rock bottom interest rate since we bought; I think we are the lucky generation of home owners.

My mum and dad had never heard of blogging, my husband thought I was having some sort of mid-life crisis and most of my friends nodded their heads with limited (dis?)interest when I told them I was starting a blog. It was a conversation at a wedding about Snapchat that started me on my path. I hadn’t ever used it and didn’t know the first thing about how it was used ...

How your home insurance relates to your social media accounts Sipping your Pina Colada, watching the children splashing about in the pool, you lazily post a picture-perfect snap on Instagram. #holidaytime #holidaytime   It’s the summer holidays and every second photo on my Facebook and Instagram feeds is of friends enjoying their holidays with their families. I love all the smiling faces and quite often pick up on great ideas for future holidays too! ...

Are you cash poor but equity rich? For a lot of families, one thing that uses up a significant chunk of money each month is the mortgage. Owning your own home feels great, and is something that a lot of people aspire to and work hard to achieve. However, as you get older it can leave you in the position of being short on cash but rich in equity – in ...
