You’re just over two weeks into Stoptober, the smokers cough is starting to recede and breathing in the morning is no longer a straight forward fight between life and death.

We are fast becoming the generation of mindless waste, failing to learn many life skills along the way. Have you fallen into the trap?

Lost Life Skills: Why Don’t We Repair Things Anymore?

I come from a single parent household, mum, my two brothers and I, yet out of the three of my mum’s children, only I’m capable of even the simplest of household task, my brothers have absolutely zero life skills whatsoever, nowt, zilch, nada – utterly useless basically, probably as my mum is still wiping their arses for them living at…

Branded medicine is one of the biggest rip offs around, and the chances are you could have got it for a fraction of the price if you knew about checking the PL number. Never heard of a PL number? I'm not surprised, they don't exactly scream it from the roof tops as the cheeky, rip off merchant, pharmaceutical companies want you to continue to shop blind, spending way more than you ever needed to. In fact I'd put money on it that you have more than one of the exact same drug in your cupboards, but you've been lead to believe they are different and specific to your complaint. By the end of this article you'll never get stung by these little cretins ever again!

I was honoured to be asked to appear as a guest thrifty, money saver on BBC 1's Right on the Money with Denise and Dom. Here's what we discussed!

My Guest Appearance On BBC’s Right On The Money

After strutting out of my previous job back in April, my second day in the world of self-employment was spent appearing as a thrifty, money saving ninja on BBC’s Right On The Money.

You’re probably a member of a Facebook buy, sell and swap group or page, if not, I’m sure you’ll have heard of them. They are something I always keep an eye on, whether I particularly need something or not, just in case there is a chance to grab a bargain to flip sell it and make a bit of profit. However, since moving into my apartment last November I’ve been on the lookout for bedroom furniture and a dining table. I missed out on an amazing table a few months ago because Sidney the Sony decided to switch himself off and I missed the guys message - a trait that old Sid is doing more and more. It was beautiful and since seeing it nothing has quite floated my boat in the same way, meaning I’ve been holding out. I’ve been living with temporary bedroom furniture and eating off my knee for eight months and it has taken me to the brink of insanity, thankfully the furniture Gods smiled down on me this week and I’ll tell you how

Most people would love to have great smile, but the truth is not everyone can afford it. The most common tooth problem among the British is the missing teeth. Dental implants are the best solution. However, they may seem really costly in the UK (even £1,900-2,400 per single tooth implant).
