How to Save Money With your wardrobe!

Recently I started to work with a sewing machine!

I know, it’s something a little bit out of the usual, but I started to have sewing classes.

I love fashion, I love clothes, but it was just too expensive for me to buy all the things I love to wear!

I had no idea how to sow, but I went online, and a whole new world enfolded for me!

I can create my own clothes and save a huge amount of money!

If you are interested in giving this a go, you must check out some YouTube videos, and you’ll find all the information you need to start this project.

I had some lessons on sewing because I had no idea how to do it. However, if you have some experience in this area, you will probably won’t need it!

Make sure to find the right places for good fabrics, and you will end up with an original wardrobe, with high quality and unique design!

Make a budget with all the materials you’ll need, and you will see the amount of money that you are saving!

How to Attract Money!

Have you become aware of the way you handle money?

When you think about money, what is your related emotion? Happiness, anxiety, nervous. What is your immediate thought? 

The way you perceive wellness is actually the way it reflects on your life. 

We attract what we think. If we are in constant fear about our finances, we are attracting insecurities in that specific area of our lives. It’s time to change the pattern, in order to change the outcome! 

First of all, you need to change your mindset. Money is a wonderful thing, it gives you a good quality of life, it brings opportunities, new experiences, it can make your life easier, lighter, happier, right? 

If you start looking at your monthly bills, not as a negative thing and start looking at it as a payment of a product or service that is bringing a benefit into your life because that’s what it is! 

So, if you have bills, it’s because you have a quality of life that allows you to afford that service, right? If this is not the case, you must re-adjust your budget immediately, in order not to be living above your means, and of course, struggling from pay-check to pay-check. 

When you are financially organised, you will realise that the old speech that you heard from your parents about bills, bills, bills, as a negative is finally over! Get rid of that paradigm. Create a new one, a positive one. You can pay for all your monthly expenses and have a good life because you can afford it, it’s a good thing! 

Start to have this positive approach with your children, a positive attitude towards money, finances. Teach them how to budget properly, according to any situation. 

Think positive, live according to your means, re-adjust your budget, and you will be able to enjoy life without stress and anxiety.

Summer Holidays with Kids on a Budget

Making childhood memories with your kids is one of the most amazing parts of being a parent. Most parents want to enjoy their kids’ breaks from school to spend time with them and help them create new memories and special moments. Let’s face it, this can get a little expensive rather quickly. On today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you how you can have the best time with them, on a budget.

1.Travel within the Country

If you really want to go somewhere else and discover new cities or villages, then the cheapest option will be to travel within your country. I advise you to rent an Airbnb instead of a hotel because it will be less expensive. Also, make sure to do a little research on free activities that the city might have.

2.Games

Renting a place or going to some sort of park to play games with them would be really fun. You could do a bit of research on Pinterest about new games that your kids have never played before, and even prepare a bag of goodies for the winners. It would definitely be a fun memory for them.

3.Activities

Planning a week of activities within your city is also a really good idea. For example, one day it would be going to an Aquarium, other going to the Zoo, and maybe also going to a museum about the things that they’re passionate about. At the end of the week, each one them could have a basket with memories and cute things from the places you’ve been.

I hope you and your family have an amazing time together.

Organised And Saving Money

How come it seems so much easier for some people to always have money in their pockets, and for others, it’s a constant struggle, living paycheck to paycheck?

The answer is quite simple: Organisation!

Organised people are in control!

So, if you want to raise your savings, here are some amazing tips:

1.Organised Mind

First of all, get your thoughts and ideas together. Prioritise, the important from the secondary. Focus on your purposes, in the short term, and find ways to make them work. Follow through, a project at a time, and see the results unfold.

2.Organise your home

Go through each division and check thoroughly what it’s missing, what it’s just taking space with no practical use. Re-organise every single room. What you don’t longer use, sell.

3.Storage

Take it all out. Make a list of what you have. Make an accurate list of all the things you need, both for cooking and cleaning. Don’t clutter, if you don’t use, don’t buy it!

4.Lists

Make this a habit. Start to make lists of all the items that you have on your pantry and your refrigerator, see what’s missing. Calculate what you spent weekly with each item. Make it accurate, in order not to over buy.

If you keep track of every you actually use, and the exact quantities that you need for each item, you will save a lot of money, by the end of the month, and you will be amazed of the amount of money that you were over spending!
