Home Work!!

Hello!

Well today was a snow day from work! Yay!
 I always save annual leave for this time of the year, the roads can be treacherous and I hate driving on the ice and snow.  Luckily I have an understanding boss!

So, what to do on my free day?

Well, I've been following  Laura at No More Spending who wrote recently about Passive Income, this is defined as income from   " a venture in which an individual does not directly participate"

Hmmm! Well I don't have any of that! No rents, savings, pensions etc! 

So, what to do!? Start looking for ways to save!

Firstly house insurance, this has been bought via a cash back site and £100 cheaper than my current insurer. It will save me money each month as we have saved to pay for it in one lump sum and it's cheaper than paying monthly, with the  cash back of £30 it's a win win! 

Secondly change  gas and electricity suppliers. I no longer have any loyalty to any company and will go to the one with the best price each month.  I've saved £5 a month and £40 for switching!

Thirdly, I've volunteered to work some extra nights, we get a additional payment for un-social hours and this will bring in an extra £60. 

Not a wasted day then! 

I'm off to read my new book "The Fifites Mystique" I'll be reviewing it soon : - )

  2. I get extra for unsocial hours too but it's not a lot per hour bit it all adds up i suppose, must do my claim form.
    Let us know if you have any more ideas for passive income, I could do with it!
