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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
