Glam Up Your Own Footwear For Only A Few Pounds : Creative Mondays Blog Hop...






I brought these polka dot clips for only a pound each from Poundland, cut the hairband off and had fun clipping them to make lots of my old shoes look glam!! Great thing is one set can make lots of shoes look different. They come with 3 ways to use ~ hairband for hair, pin for clipping to bags and this little clip for clipping to shoes....



Tips...

Clip to straps, laces or anywhere overlapping like buckles...

Don't clip just to sides of shoes or they will rub you foot when walking...

Don't clip to front of shoes or the will hurt where you foot bends when walking...

Have fun mixing different colour shoes and patterns...

They mix dots and strips? dots and flowers would be cool too!!

Top Money Saving Tips...


Why is it with some insurance companies that when you've been with them a year or two the prices start to rise?

Years ago we used to get cheaper bills because we had not claimed, but now my bills seem to go up each year and they hope that you...

 a) Don't notice and pay the extra.

 b) Don't have the time to change it.

c.) Don't know where to start to look for cheaper insurance.

Like this year for instance our insurance went up about
£45-00 and after compared home insurance we managed to get it for the same price as last year.

One of my goals this year is to save money and so far this is what I have come up with.

1.) compare home insurance ,car insurance,phone bill,broadband,gas and electricity bill with easy to use websites on the internet that are free and easy to compare your prices.

2.) Buy groceries online this way we only buy what we need and don't end up buying lots of treats and goodies especially when hungry and save petrol too.Since we have done this we have saved about £25 a week and seem to have less waste. Because of planning meals for the week we have had more family meals and not as much biting and bobbing. Which has resulted in a more balanced diet.

3.) Cut down on small journeys in the car, with the price nowadays on petrol only using car for emergencies or for distances over 4miles. It has got everyone fitter as a result.

Money saving ideas for next few months are look at changing mortgage to get better deal, only buy clothes etc when sales are on.

Anyone got any other ideas let me know...
