Why You Should Never Auto Renew Your Car Insurance

The new registration plate is due March 17 making it one of the busiest months of the year in the world of car insurance, so let me ask you this…. If I owned a shop and I was selling cans of coke for £150, would you pay over the odds, or shop around? I’m guessing you’d shop around, so why…

The slushy, mushy, lovey dovey, puke fest that is Valentine’s Day is almost upon us.

Spending like a pauper, eating like a king, this is the true story of an apprentice Yellow Ticket Ninja! My journey towards being a fully qualified Yellow Ticket Ninja began hopping on one leg. I had just been stung by a wasp on the London Underground when a lovely Welsh lady stopped to ask me for directions.

New Year’s Eve House Party Madness Survival Kit

Apparently, this year 78% of the UK is staying at home for New Year’s Eve. I have to say I don’t bloody blame them with the cost of double-time taxis there and back, plus pubs and bars you go to every week charging you for one night – and that’s before you’ve even bought a drink.
