A few weeks ago I went on a road trip to Sheffield to visit the Approved Food factory with a few of the other UK Money Bloggers. If you have never heard of Approved Food, they're the largest online retailer of short-dated food. Here is what I think of the products and service!

Approved Food Review: Just How Good Is It?

A few weeks ago I went on a road trip to Sheffield to visit the Approved Food factory with a few of the other UK Money Bloggers. If you have never heard of Approved Food, they’re the largest online retailer of short-dated food. What I witnessed was an incredible, slick operation, which was the brainchild of Dan Cluderay who, with his…

Breakfast Egg Muffins: Slimming World Friendly

I made my long awaited return to Slimming World after an nine week hiatus and the results were around about what I was expecting – 16lbs back on! So, with PK working nights last night I didn’t want to make a full on meal that I could be tempted to go back to for seconds and thirds and found a…

Our little sister was round at our house last week and jerk chicken is pretty much the only thing she'll let me cook her. We hadn't had it for a good while and it reminded me of just how much we love it, and how cost effective it is when you make a batch to either cook and have for dinner and lunch the following day, or just to marinade and stick in the freezer ready for next time. As you will see from the ingredients below, I make up quite a lot in one batch, if that is too much for you then use less chicken, although I recommend you keep the marinade ingredients the same. It is packed with flavour so if you are in a rush you can marinade and cook straight away, but for the very best results marinade it for at least four hours, or even overnight.

Being refused credit is frustrating. But what should you do to give yourself the best chance of being accepted in future by other potential lenders?

What You Should Do If You Have Been Refused Credit

Being refused credit can be so annoyingly frustrating, trust me I’ve been there when I was told I needed credit to be taken seriously for a mortgage. Regardless of who Experian, at the time, were recommending, I was having no luck whatsoever in getting anyone to accept me. Little did I know then, there were ways in which I could…

Mediterranean chicken is quick, simple and cheap as chips to make. I use a Pressure King Pro to make this, but you can use any pressure cooker, slow cooker or even in a large pot slow cooked in the oven!

Mediterranean Chicken: Slimming World Friendly

Ever since PK bought me a Pressure King Pro for Christmas it is rarely off in the evening, which has lead me to concoct a load of my own recipes that I’ll be sharing with you on here regularly. Today’s offering is my Mediterranean chicken that I literally threw together as I went along, luckily it turned out delicious. It…

Banking jargon can be difficult to understand, especially when nobody has taken the time to explain it to us. In this guide I have debunked many of the most common types of banking jargon!

Banking Jargon Debunked: What Does It Mean?

Financial agreements and products come full of banking jargon and terms that most of us don’t understand. In fact, it’s safe to say that up until a few years ago, some of the banking jargon used in my mail may as well have been written in Japanese for all I understood about it. I recently asked my work colleagues to explain…

Can you believe that unexpected boiler repair costs came to a mahoosive £787 million last year for people without boilercare? Well believe it, because it happened, and if you're a homeowner without it you're playing Russian Roulette with your finances. If you think that sounds like a bit of an exaggeration, let's look at the at the facts. Five million homes were affected by a broken down boiler last year with the average bill totaling £270. However, 250,000 (5%) of those five million homes faced boiler breakdown costs of £1,250+ for the repairs. The average UK household just isn't equipped financially to deal with an emergency of this kind. A recent study discovered that low income families have paltry £95 in savings to deal with an emergency should disaster strike. Something as simple as a boiler breaking down could set someone off spiraling into debt, playing catch up and left robbing Peter to pay Paul. If you lack a sufficient emergency fund it is imperative that you have the right cover in place in case the worse comes to the worse.

How To Build A Credit File Worthy Enough For A Set Of Bankers

I’m asked, quite often, how can I build a credit file if I am unable to take out any credit without having anything on my credit file in the first place? It’s one of those annoying little conundrums akin to the job advert that requires you to have experience, yet without someone giving you the chance for you to gain that…
