  1. This blog post is in association with Boost.

    It’s that time of year when we’re all feeling the pinch after Christmas and looking for ways to cut back, spend less and save as much money as possible.  This can be particularly tricky when it’s also the darkest and coldest time of the year.  We’re all using more energy than normal just to see and stay warm.  There’s always lots of advice out there for lowering energy bills, but what if you’re on a pay-as-you-go tariff?  Is it still possible for you to reduce your energy bills? 

    Years ago I used to be on a prepayment meter.  I was only around 18 or 19 at the time, having moved out of home at age 17, and I had no idea about how to save money whilst using a prepayment meter.  I didn’t even have the internet or a laptop as it was 15 years ago and smart phones didn’t exist. I was clueless about the ability to switch suppliers or how to save money when it came to my energy bills.

    Luckily times have changed a great deal since then and thanks to the internet and smart technology, there are plenty of ways you can begin to save money on your energy bills if you are on a pay-as-you go tariff today.

  2. If you’re anything like me then you’re getting well and truly fed up with the cold English winter weather and dreaming of escaping to more luxurious destinations.  The January blues have set in and to cheer myself up I’ve booked a couple of family holidays for later in the year.  In this blog post I will explore how to make your next family holiday more affordable.
