Happy Wednesday lovely people, hope your week is going well. So today, I would give you tips on how to save money.
Plan out your spending: know what you spend most money on set your priorities so you don’t waste money on unnecessary things.
Make your own gifts: Diying things will save you a ton of money because you can spend as little as £5 in making it instead of spending £30 in purchasing it and the person you give will appreciate it because you put so much time and effort.
Write a list before going shopping: this will help you to purchase only necessary things.
Learn to repair: there are some things that just need repairing instead of wasting money replacing it, you can just repair and save yourself some money.
Stay healthy: this will help you spend less in hospital bills, cigarettes, drugs,medications and probably insurance.
Cut down on electricity usage: turn off the lights, turn off the tv and go outside to read and enjoy nature or you can go for a walk.
Compare prices: walk around the mall and compare the prices of certain commodities so you can get it for the best possible price in order to save money.
Cook: to be honest, we waste our money on fast food when we can just buy the ingredients to cook good food and we can re use the ingredients over and over again.
Sign up for freebies: who doesn’t love free things?
And finally, have a savings account: this is pretty self explanatory

I’ve been toying with this idea of could I be friends with myself? Because it comes up a lot when I look for an idea of what to talk about. I was like saying to my friend earlier. Admit it I’m the most frustrating person at the times to be honest it’s true. I have a love hate relationship with myself where I get on with myself so much and then other days I’m like what the hell is wrong with you sort of thing.
I have agreed with people who say your the most frustrating person to work with. In a joke kind of way but I use the punch line of you telling me. I can’t stand myself half the time. One thing I don’t agree with people is that I’m pretty and etc that’s just me being inscure and what not. Everyone has those don’t they unless your one of those people who a stuck up and think their perfect in every way. Who are they trying to be Mary Poppins? No ones perfect I know I’m not.
My answer is this I can be friends with myself. I do fall out with myself a lot because I have dyslexia so I can fall out with my alter ego as you may call it. It makes me laugh that I argue a lot with myself best way for it and yeah sometimes I forgive myself for it. I have this feeling that something is telling me magpies are looking out for me today. They seem to be following me everywhere. Just moved from the back of the sports park to the front of the park.
Let me ask you these questions and you can share your opinions or keep them to yourselves or email what you think. Could you be friends with yourself? If so why. Do you believe in life after death? Such as after you past you turn into something like a bird for example. Do you believe that you come back as a Sprite? I ask myself these sort of questions to myself all the time. As I feel like someone or some people are watching over me when things get tough and etc. Let me know what your own thoughts are.

Have you been unemployed? If so, then you probably know how frustrating it is to try to find a job in the United States today. Some areas of the United States have been devastated so badly by the economic downturn. Unless you have been unemployed before, it’s hard to explain the extreme frustration that one feels when you are unable to pay the rent and feed your family. This epidemic has prompted me to become an entrepreneur and become my own boss. However, there is a huge misconception that being unemployed is the fault of those who are unemployed. The truth is that our economy is dying and it is not producing nearly enough jobs anymore.Here are some reasons why it’s hard to find a job.
1. Increased competition:
There have been a record number of college applications across the nation, resulting in more college graduates, and thus, more competition for the limited number of jobs available on the market. I will safely assume that every person reading this knows at least one person in their social circle who has graduated college and is still having difficulty getting a job
2. Lack of networking:
Many people get jobs through referrals. Statistics show the majority of people get their jobs this way. The reason why word of mouth is so effective is because it cuts through all the worry of whether or not this person can do the job. If somebody has been working for a company for some time, then that employee knows what it takes to succeed, and if that employee knows somebody who can do it, it’s an easy fit. The employer will trust the employee referring the new candidate and the new candidate will most likely get the job.
3. Technology Replaces Workers:
This has become a major problems in recent years with more technology there is a lesser need to for employers to hire available workers. This results in a huge number of displaced workers
