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. I really didn’t mind if they were going to break after a few weeks like all the rest because they only cost £1! I felt like…

Is Netflix worth your time and money?

Many students and young adults will know the struggle when it comes to Netflix! Do you get the subscription or not! If you do which level do you go for! For these of you who don’t know what Netflix is let me explain! Netflix is basically a subscription service that brings you shows and movies. You pay monthly for the service and in return you can watch anything they have available. The question is though is Netflix really worth buying or would it be easier and cheaper to go with an alternative subscription service like Amazon video? IS NETFLIX WORTH BUYING??  Netflix is popular with students unlike BBC iPlayer because basically you don’t need a TV license when you have Netflix. Thus in turn saving money while at university. So Netflix is totally worth it as a student as long as you don’t want to watch the shows you would…

Lately I have been looking for some great bargains, in time for Christmas of course.

The canvas’s were really easy to order as well. I ordered the four and then waited for the seller to send me an email so that I could…

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. As time went on however we decided that we needed to start getting our own furniture because when we eventually move out and get our own place we won’t have any furniture. When you live life on a budget however and you’re always looking to save money it can be a little difficult to start buying furniture all the time. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had this problem which is why I wanted to bring you the solution. Before I start I want to point out that this isn’t a quick fix, you can’t just go on the app and find something…
