How To Minimise Your Vet Bills

The best and most logical way to avoid expensive vet bills is to keep your pet healthy in the first place.


Just like people, your cat or dog needs regular dental check-ups at the vet. And dental care for pets is hugely expensive. Dog’s love bones, cat’s love fresh fish. Why not give them what nature intended? A combination of tooth cleaning products and healthy diet can keep tooth decay at bay and help maintain your pet’s overall wellbeing.

How To Fight House Pests

Carpet Crawlers. Most pests thrive on food and dirt. If you’re getting itchy or scratchy at home, it could be fleas or lice, invest in someone to come round and give your carpet a good steam clean. Likewise, give all your cushions and rugs a good and thorough wash.


Check your hoover. Pests thrive on dirt and you could have plenty in your hoover if you haven’t cleaned it out thoroughly. Just emptying out the dust isn’t enough. Give it a good cleanout and use disinfectant. Always use rubber gloves when you’re doing it to avoid the itches.

Christmas Budget Planner


Be selective

You don’t have to buy everything just because it’s traditional. Maybe there are some things you can drop without missing them. How many people have brandy butter sitting left unopened in their fridge for months afterwards? Or even just buy too big a turkey that it gets wasted? Grab a pen and see what you really want – and what you can do without.

Cold Starters

Winter car repairs can be avoided just by taking a few simple precautions before the weather really turns ugly. The way you drive, too, can save you from breaking down and having to be towed to a garage. We take a look.


Firstly, when the cold, damp weather kicks in you’re likely to have starting problems which can flatten your battery and catch you out (especially in an old car). Why not buy a cheap battery charger and give your battery a nice long charge over night – to keep it strong and full of oomph when you need it.

Black Friday Bargains

Black Friday bargains abound all over the place – but they don’t all start just on Black Friday, plenty happen on the run up too. Here are a few that we found – just in case you don’t know where to start.
