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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
