Using disinfectant around my home (AD)

AD. I first started using disinfectant around my home when I was pregnant with my daughter back in 2015. So many people seem to be using Zoflora now, partly because of a number of influencers who recommend it in their Instastories and on their feeds. I love that Zoflora is increasing in popularity as they bring out lots of lovely scents regularly and I can go on a hunt in the supermarket to find my favourites. Also, I love that disinfectant is really reasonably priced, compared to other branded cleaning products. A little goes a long way and today I want to talk to you about the ways that I use disinfectant around my home.

Staying healthy is important to me and I have found that antibacterial sprays and disinfectants are great at helping with this. I make sure not to overuse them but if I have an area of my home that needs to be free of germs, such as the bathroom or kitchen sink, then I find disinfectant fantastic for this.

The one change I’m making to my finances for #Planuary (AD)

Advertorial post with Aviva. As a woman, I never used to think much about how my gender can have an effect on my finances. By speaking to other women I know, and reading feminist blogs like Nomipalony, I have taken control of our family finances. In the last few years I have become more aware of the ways that the gender divide can have an impact on a woman’s savings and even her pension. Aviva recently got in touch with me about #Planuary, a new campaign that is designed to get women to pledge one change to their finances in January to try to close the gap that women see in multiple areas of their finances including savings and pensions. Today I’m making a pledge and sharing with you the one change I’m making to my finances for #Planuary.

Here are my 50 moneysaving tips – all designed to help you maximise your moneysaving and make things last longer.

Start the New Year off right with a savings challenge

In 2016, 2017 and 2018 I embarked on some savings challenges. Some of my challenges were small; have enough money to pay for Christmas without debt, and others were big; save enough money to buy a house. I’m really proud to say that we have achieved most of our savings goals in the last few years. Anyway, now that the New Year is here this is the PERFECT time for you to set yourself a savings goal. Some of the savings challenges I’m going to share with you today, shared by other bloggers, are designed to run the entire year. As we are only a few days into the New Year you can join in now and won’t get behind! So, start the New Year off right with a savings challenge!

Quick wins to help your car pass its MOT

Running a car is an expensive business. Even though I’m not a fan of driving myself I help my husband with contributions towards his car. The main reason for this is because he drives me around, anywhere I want to go, and I never have to pay towards petrol or insurance. Recently our car had £750 of repairs (ouch!) and in just a few months we have the MOT coming up again! Today I want to talk to you about quick wins to help your car pass its MOT. These are little things that you can do yourself or have done cheaply elsewhere, to try to help your car pass its MOT.

Now there is no guarantee that there won’t be larger work that needs doing to your car, but if you know you’re going to be forced to pay for repairs, as you can’t afford a new car, then these steps may help you reduce the overall cost of any work come MOT time.
