How to Use Money as a Tool, Not Simply as a Goal

Posted by on September 21, 2016 at 8:16 AM

Money is often looked at as a means to an end, “if we have x then we can buy y”, and this often leads to a negative relationship with the currency. If we can’t afford and item then it becomes something that constantly gets in our way. However if you don’t want for much then you may believe saving enough will solve all of our problems, which is never really the case.

How to Use Money as a Tool, Not Simply as a Goal

Money should be looked at as a tool rather than simply a figure to save towards and this can seem easier for people who have plenty of it. But those of us who don’t have so much seem to have so many more money related problems and therefore can fall under the illusion that if you save enough, your problems will be over and its this type of mind-set that can allow money to run your life.

Save Money by Avoiding Electricity Leaks Around the House

Posted by on July 7, 2016 at 8:30 AM

Would you leave the house with the tap running or the air-conditioning on? Most likely not, but I bet with a closer look many of us will find we are doing something similar every day. “A leak” at home generally refers to water coming out of your taps or pipes. However, what you could find is that it’s actually electricity that you’re “leaking”, caused by power flowing from electrical appliances or similar.

Save Money by Avoiding Electricity Leaks Around the House

These hidden leaks can cost households thousands of dollars per year in wasted energy. Generally, most of us would call a plumber if we noticed a tap leaking, but because we cant see an electricity leak, it’s very difficult to know when we even have one. A household’s average energy bill in Australia is $1,690 per year, but as electricity prices continue to rise across the country, leaks are a growing problem that you need to search for and stop sooner rather than later.
