    At what age should children have a mobile phone?

    This is a collaborative post The world is a different place than what it was when I was younger. To have a mobile phone meant that your parents had a good amount of money. They didn’t have colour screens to start with and once your credit was gone that was it. Nowadays it seems like children are having phone younger and younger not just any phone but the latest models. I see children I would guess at saying 14 years of age that have a better phones than me. They are glued to their phones whilst out at family meals and only put it down to eat. Which I personally…

    This is a collaborative post With thousands of offers to be had across a vast multitude of websites, finding the right phone contract has become a monumental task. We wanted to make sure we were paying the right price for both the handset and the amount of calls, texts and data we needed, so we used comparison sites to find the very best deal for us.  In the process we discovered comparison sites are awesome, showing us deals we would have never found on our own. Some sites even offer rewards if you buy through them, so even if saving money wasn’t benefit enough, rewards should sweeten the deal.   Today…

    How to teach money skills to children

    We have been making more of an effort recently to ensure that Ava doesn’t think that money grows on trees. I want her to understand that money has to be earned and once its gone its gone. I will hold my hands up and say I spoil my children but they do know that when I say no to something it means no. Ava being older doesnt kick off she knows that I may not be able to get her something at that moment in time but when I have the money she can have a treat. So this is how to teach money skills to children. The skills you…

    We were very kindly gifted a family meal for free at the Merry Hill pub and grill in Wolverhampton. In return for an honest review . All opinions are my own.

    Moving up the property ladder and buying our forever home

    I have been wanting to write this post for a few weeks now but if I’m being honest I have been a little scared. If you have been reading my blog for the last year you would know that we haven’t really had the best of luck with selling our house. We have had two buyers pull out. Really cheeky people asking if we could leave most of the contents of our house. Along with a horrible time with Purple Bricks estate agents. I think we may now be moving up the property ladder and buying our forever home. I can now say as I touch every piece of wood near me  We have sold our house !! .…
