Get your personal budget in order and know your monetary limits

It would appear that, after the horrors and belt-tightening that resulted from the GFC a few years ago, there seems to be a little bit of money back in the pocket again. It took around 10-15 years for the turnaround to happen after the crash of '29 so we've probably done a good job in minimizing the damage so far. I think we've learned a few things out of this crisis though. The main thing i think that we've learned is that it's never been more important to organize ourselves monetarily and that it's vital to live within our means. A budget is essential -especially where families are ...  More

Take control of your electricity consumption to save money and reduce your usage

There has been an awful lot of talk over the last few years about climate change and what we can do about it. Whether you believe that we humans are someway responsible for its more rapid onset over the last twenty years or so or are one of the few that think it's a cyclical problem that we can do little about, there is no doubt that something is not quite right out there. The bizarre weather patterns across the US this year, not to mention the rest of the world, show us that we have a problem. It has even been an election issue and, in Australia, the 'Carbon Tax' will be one of the major ...  More

Never forget who borrowed your Marvin Gaye book ... or that $20!

Have a look at your fridge door. Is it covered with post-it notes detailing money owed or split bills that you share with flat mates?  Or a list of books, cd's or DVD's that you have lent to friends? That's how mine looks, anyway. I've thought of using one of the many apps available but, to be quite honest, they've left a little to be desired. Some only link up to your social media friends, some require yet another log in with a password (just what i need) and some only deal in money whereas most of the things I lend tend to be books rather than cash. So when the IOUTool came along it ...  More

Monetize your iDevice

Ten years ago the word viral suggested something bad when it came to computer use. The nature of the word led thoughts towards viruses that would harm your computer or spam that would fill up your email in box with adverts for fake Rolexes and Viagra but why those two went together, I will never know. These days viral marketing is a legitimate and intelligent may of getting your message across that works on the 'suggest' theory rather than it being thrust down your throat. Nowadays, in fact, the tables are turned and the smartphone user can actually make money out of promoting products. ...  More

The bees-knees of negotiating skills

While I was doing a little background research about this finance tips application it was hard not to see the plethora of mentions of developer Ramit Sethi.

He runs a blog called I Will Teach You To Be Rich and has now released this monetary guide based on his ability to negotiate his way out of everything from bank fees to car insurance whilst also teaching you how to best negotiate your next wage rise.   Negotiate It is for anyone who ...  More
