Is Having a Rail Card Worth the Money?

I have a rail card and on numerous accounts I have had people ask me if they are really worth the money. There is no simple answer to this question however and it all depends on a persons circumstance.

The one pound power bank for your phone!

Last month a couple of days before flying to Bangkok we decided to have a look around the pound shop for some last minute essentials. We needed all the basics and I wanted to see if they had any apple chargers as it’s always handy to take a spare! Well you won’t believe what I found. I am fed up of buying power banks on Amazon to lose them or have them break after a couple weeks. Well it just so turns out that the pound shop are currently selling their own, yes for £1!! I couldn’t believe it either! I had a look and they had several colour. Green, blue, black, red and orange. We got a blue and orange for our trip.

How I furnished my flat for free!

As you may well know by now I am always on the look out for bargains and I hate spending too much money. When we first moved into our flat we had all the furniture we needed provided by the landlord which was ace.

Wizz Stain Remover, Cheaper alternative to Vanish!

I am terrible for staining my clothes! To the point that my mum decided to get me an adult man bib which I am not ashamed to say, I have used on many occasions. My main problem at the moment happens to be Indian food. If you have ever got Indian on your clothes you will know it can be terrible to get out and most times you end up throwing the clothes away. Well I forgot to wear my adult man bib and my white T-shirt suffered a fate worse than the bin! The dreaded stain. The worst part is that I was keeping the T-shirt for my upcoming Bangkok holiday! It needed to be saved and I was not paying the price of Vanish. I understand that everyone says that Vanish is the best but I like my bargains and I always try to find cheaper first! I…
