Staying Smart With Your Money In 2018


Money management can be a difficult task for even the most level headed of people, and with the increase of prices and also scams that can trick us into spending all of our hard earned cash away, it’s become increasingly difficult to keep an eye on our spending. As much as we’d hate to believe it, money does make the world turn around when it comes to keeping our homes running, taking care of our families, and becoming financially stable. Here are some tips on how you can stay smart with your money in 2018.

Check, double check, and then check again

One of the major reasons that people are losing their money in this day and age is because of companies that manage to trick us into spending our money with them. While the company might not necessarily be ‘scamming’ you, they can appear to offer more than what you’re paying for, and lead you on to thinking it’s a wise spend. Make sure that whenever you’re purchasing a new product or service (especially online) that you’re checking out the company, reviews, and also social media comments before spending any money with them. This will prevent you from regretting purchases and being left out of pocket.

Consider investment

A really smart move to take with your money is investment, and you should definitely consider some sort of investment in your lifetime. Whether it be in property for you to live out your days in, or whether you’re interested in investing in businesses, you need to make sure that you’re making the right decision. You should always make sure that the investment you’re making is going to be worth your time and money. Casey research reviews give tactical information on wise investments, so that you can ensure you’re not buying into something that you won’t later benefit from or even worse, lose out on your money.

Be smart with savings

If you’re not already, you should begin some sort of saving scheme for you to fall back if times become tough financially. A really easy way to save is by rounding up each spend to the nearest pound or dollar (or whatever your currency is) and putting it away. So, if you spend £5.49, the 51p that you’d use to round it up to £6 would go into a savings account. Many bank accounts offer this service, so check with yours to see if you can begin saving. Your money will mount up faster than you think!

Take on extra work if needed

Finally, no matter how hard you try to keep track of money, sometimes things simply go wrong. Items need repairing, you have medical bills, among many other reasons for expenditure. The truth is that there is no ‘get rich quick’ scheme that you can take on, so it might be time to take on some extra work until your head is back above water.

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they?

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
