Money Money Money, It Isn’t Always Funny

Are you in a tricky financial situation? Perhaps you have over-borrowed, or maybe you have had to borrow to pay for a seriously large expense. Don’t worry, you’re not alone, and there are a few steps you can take to escape your financial difficulty. Let’s start by thinking about how you can deal with an existing debt.

Manage And Settle

The first step is to make sure that you can manage your debt. Perhaps the situation isn’t as dire as you think. All you need to do is guarantee that you can pay a little off each month. It might take some time, but you should eventually find yourself in a position where it just seems like one more tax or bill. That’s the ultimate goal here. If you can’t reach that point, you need a little extra help.

You should speak to a legal advisor and see if they can help pull you out of your debt cycle. They will most likely start by seeking out a debt settlement for you. According to debtsettlement.co, to do this, you will need to gather a large sum of money for a starting offer to the lender. In most typical debt situations the lender will bite, although it does depend on who you borrowed from.

Expand Your Income

Once you have started to manage your debt effectively, you should be looking for ways to expand your income. There are a wide range of options to consider here. For instance, you can explore the possibility of blogging. It’s super easy to set up a blog on WordPress, and it could quickly become a new source of income for you. All it needs is a little work and some fantastic content. Do this, and you’ll soon have people interested enough to become loyal readers.

Alternatively, you can look for side hustles and small investments that can slowly help you grow your finances little by little. One of the best ways to do this is with something like online surveys. You can answer surveys online, making money purely by answering questions honestly. It’s that easy.

Say Goodbye To Plastic

Finally, you need to make sure that you are eliminating borrowing from your routine. This is most likely how you ended up in financial trouble in the first place. Borrowing too much too often is always going to lead to debt. So, cut up those credit cards as soon as you have paid them off.

After that, you might wonder how you can live the same quality of life that you’ve grown accustomed to. Well, it may not be quite the same, but you’ll be debt free, and with forward thinking, you can make the most of your finances. You need to make sure that you are saving a little each month. You can think of this as your safety net. It’s something that you will be able to fall back on when you need extra money.

The rest of the money that you make you can use however you want, and thus you should still be able to afford little life luxuries.

Take this advice, and you’ll escape debt devastation correcting your financial situation for good.

Get Gorgeous for Less This Summer

Being a woman in the 21st century is hard – we all know that summer is fast approaching, and with it the endless beauty regime of plucking, shaving, moisturizing and perfecting that comes with it.  Women in the UK spend an average of £2,500 a year on beauty products – a staggering amount – and men are catching up with women, spending an estimated £1,786 a year on male grooming.

When you consider the rising cost of living, it’s easy to see why many people don’t have much disposable income left every month, and not all of us can afford costly cosmetics and pricy pampering sessions every week.  There is an easier way to save money on the latest beauty products and treatments, and the key is to know where to look.

 Get hunting

Your local beauty salon or spa will often advertise its latest deals online – whilst some voucher websites may offer discounts, it’s best to check the salon’s site itself, which will usually detail any special offers.  Or why not ask the next time you pop in for an appointment?  With summer approaching, many salons will offer deals on waxing and personal grooming, so you could benefit from a 2 for 1 deal or discount on products that you normally use.

 Find those deals

There are websites available which will hunt for the best available deals for you – simply enter what you’re looking for and a list of results will be presented to you.  These websites do all the hard work so you can be sure you’re getting the most for your money. So for instance if you are after a make up sale specifically, simply head to one of these websites and type ‘make-up’ in the search box. It will then gather deals from around the Internet and a variety of online retailers, and present you with all the make-up products that are currently listed as a sale product. Perfect!

Buy in bulk

Discounted beauty products are often available to buy through online auction sites or smaller online retailers, and by buying in bulk you can often save even more money.  Remember not to buy cosmetics such as foundation in bulk – these products have a relatively short shelf life, so you should only buy a couple of bottles at most at any one time.  Products that you use a lot of such as hair removal creams, razors, shampoo and conditioner can be bought in bulk to experience significant savings, and many websites will offer free delivery if your order exceeds a certain amount.

It’s never been easier to get gorgeous for less this summer – savvy shoppers head online for the best deals and the latest products at discount prices.  Stick to your local salon for treatments (as it is always good to stick to the same therapist) and try to get the best deals possible. For particular products and cosmetics try the online sale finders. You’ll be looking gorgeous by the time the sun comes out!

Top Ways To Pay For Your Vacation Abroad

Holidays, especially ones abroad, can get incredibly expensive. On top of the flights and the hotel, you also have to pay for yourself (and possibly your family) to eat, enjoy activities and day trips, and have some spending money leftover to buy a souvenir and gifts. It can be pretty hard to relax when you’re stressed about how you’re going to pay for everything, so I’ve thought about that for you. Here are the top ways to pay for your vacation abroad.

Use Your Savings

Paying for your holiday using money that you’ve saved up for a while is the most sensible option. Why? Because it means you won’t be putting yourself in debt before you have even got through bag checks. Although you may want to consider applying for a credit card regardless of how much money you have stashed away in your savings account. This way, if your holiday company goes bankrupt, you will be protected by buyers protection and will be able to claim the money lost back from your credit card issuer. All you need to do is pay for your vacation with your credit card and then pay it straight off away using your savings before you incur any interest.

Apply For A Credit Card

Depending on the type of credit card you apply you can get a whole range of benefits. Rewards credit cards offer you a reward in return for spending money. There is a whole range of rewards that you can receive, including high street vouchers, vouchers for restaurants and hotels, loyalty points for supermarkets, air miles, and even football merchandise. Cash back credit cards offer you a percentage of the money you have spent back once you’ve paid off your card. These options are both perfect if you intend to pay off the money straight away. If you don’t have the funds straight away and need to spend the cost of your holiday over a few months, then an interest-free purchase credit card is a great option, as you won’t incur any interest from using it.

Get A Loan

If at all possible, you may want to avoid taking out a personal loan to pay for your vacation. However, if you have no other option, and are certain that you will be able to make the repayments, then go for it. Like with credit cards, you will be able to spread the cost of your repayments over several months, but you may also gain a little more money than you could through a credit card alone. The Money Advice Service weighs up the pros and cons of taking out a personal loan so that you don’t have to.

Even if you don’t intend to go abroad this year, holidays are still expensive, so ensure you will be able to pay for everything before you start booking anything. Even if you need a lovely, relaxing holiday, it certainly won’t be if it causes you to fall into debt, so ensure you think through all of your options.
