Posted by Kate Naylor on March 30th, 2012 at 8:43am

Printer cartridges are hideously costly, which is probably one reason why home and basic office printing machines are so cheap. But do you really need a printer these days to run a small business, or can you do without? I’m a great one for leaping in and seeing what happens, and that’s exactly what I…read more

Bringing up clever, kind, happy kids on a shoestring

Posted by Kate Naylor on March 29th, 2012 at 9:55am

I was on the bus a couple of weeks ago. There was a sweet little girl of about five on board who was obviously desperate to talk to her mum. But the silly woman was glued to her iPhone. I was on the bus for twenty minutes and she ignored her child the entire time,…read more

The art of growing older gracefully… and saving a fortune on hocus pocus!

Posted by Kate Naylor on March 28th, 2012 at 9:36am

Do you dread getting older? Are you spending a fortune on lotions and potions in an effort to hold back the years? Do you spend ages in front of the mirror stressing about wrinkles, lines and saggy bits, or wake up in a cold sweat at 3am worrying about ageing? If so, it’s a sure…read more

Which is downright shocking when so many people are struggling with their finances. I’ve talked about saving money on weekly food bills before, but I’m going to cover it again today… here’s how…read more

Sturdy old second hand tools for DIY and gardening excellence

Having found a well kept secret of a Sussex camp site where you can have fires, and where they provide free firewood, we realised we needed an axe. But not just any old axe. Like many people, my fella and I like having the right tools for the job, and we insist on quality. Luckily we know…read more

Posted by Kate Naylor on March 23rd, 2012 at 8:32am

Not so long ago it’d cost you a fortune to set up and test a business idea. The internet has made it easier and cheaper than ever to test new and innovative concepts.

Clarks shoes discount codes for happy, groovy feet!

Posted by Kate Naylor on March 22nd, 2012 at 9:04am

I have great memories of Clarks shoe shops. From the mid 1960s to the mid 70s (when, in my early teens, I rebelled and discovered unsuitably high heels), our mum bought our shoes in Clarks. I remember the smell: the wonderfully evocative scent of good quality leather. The shop’s door, that shut with a metallic…read more


Spend less on reading glasses – Fashionable,funky and cheap!

Posted by Kate Naylor on March 21st, 2012 at 8:30am

Not so long ago, I had 20-20 vision. Just like a comic strip character, I could knock the head off a fly with a catapult from two miles away.  Well, not really. But I could see perfectly well, near and far. But recently it’s started to go pear shaped and I can’t see for toffee. Anything…read more
