Six Items You’re Better off Paying More for to Get Better Value for Money

Posted by on November 21, 2014 at 8:09 AM

Saving money and finding good value for money is always my main aim and when there is a deal to be had, you can be sure it will be covered here. However, a recent article in the news covered a selection of items which it recommended were not actually cheaper even though you spend less.

Six Items Youre Better off Paying More for to Get Better Value for Money

Your total outlay of money in the long run may be doubled if you purchase cheap, poorly built products initially.

Posted by on November 16, 2014 at 7:59 AM

I have written several deals and a blogpost on Penfolds’ Collection, in fact I have even posted a deal previously on this exact same special at Dan Murphy’s on the Penfolds Koonunga Hill varieties, and now the bargain seems to have resurfaced at $8.60 a bottle (in any six). Let’s see what the fuss is about?!

Combining Costco’s low prices with the knowledge of how to take advantage of the various services and offers available to Costco customers, you should have no problem walking out of an outlet having made significant savings overall.

Posted by on November 9, 2014 at 9:12 AM

Weekend Warrior Wine Deals   Tokaji Aszu, the “Wine of Kings, King of Wines”Moving from Halloween to the Spring Races, following my blog post last week let’s take a look at Romania’s neighbouring country, Hungary. Hungarians often declare themselves as a horse riding nation, but they’re even more famous for their wine making skills and the excellent sweet wines of Tokaj.

Not to be confused with Tokay, the synonym for Pinot Gris in Alsace nor with Tokai Friulano, a grape variety also known as Sauvignonasse, Tokaj is one of the oldest wine regions in the world and the first of a kind to be classified in the 18th century. Hungarian wine culture stretches back to Roman times and this specific region has gained its reputation for its botrytised dessert wines. In fact, it’s held in such esteem, that the Hungarian national anthem thanks God for dripping sweet nectar onto the vineyards of Tokaj.
