How to earn money every time you spend money
Can’t get your head around the title? It can be slightly difficult to understand this bit of advice – you can actually make money from spending money. Surely this goes against everything you’ve been told – if you want to save money, then you have to not spend as much and cut back! Sure, this is in part true, but there are some times when you do need to spend. Everyone needs food, clothes and shelter, and these aren’t free (I feel slightly envious of our ancestors who had these things for free, and didn’t need a real “job”!)
 
Anyway, the principle behind this idea is that any necessary, regular spending that you do have, you carry out on a cashback credit card. Perhaps this piece of advice is even more alarming then the first – using a credit card to save yourself money! Well, we can assure you we’ve not gone crazy and this is a completely genuine and legitimate way to make (or save yourself) quite a lot of money each year.
 
A cashback credit card, you probably aren’t too surprised to hear, is a credit card which pays you cashback on …

Why You Will Struggle Saving Money In 2013

In times of financial difficulty times great opportunities for talented entrepreneurs and businesses, and unfortunately if you don’t come into the later bracket then you’ll be looking at simply keeping yourself and your family afloat, saving as much money as you possibly can.
It can be quite severe to break things down quite as bluntly as this, but at the end of the day its likely this will be the outcome. People will either be struggling to make ends meet in 2013 or they’ll be starting up new ventures or expanding into new areas. There’s no shame in simply putting money aside and trying to gain security for your family – after all this is human nature.

To put it quite simply, the banks and suchlike can’t make as much money as they once did, by investing your money on commodities and other markets, and so they can’t offer you the kind of interest rates that you could have …

1. Selling your old possessions
Its crazy how many things the average household can collect without even realising it. Take a look around your room now (if you’re at home, use your imagination if not). I bet there’s loads of things you can see which you don’t really use. Perhaps you’ve got a massive collection of DVD’s that are just collecting dust on your shelves. Or an old games console. Maybe some books on the bookshelf that you’ve already read. Whatever it is, you know for sure that you’ll be able to find a buyer online. Just list your item on the Amazon marketplace, or eBay if you prefer. If you’re not silly about your pricing you’ll find a seller.

What is Debt Repayment Protection Insurance? (And Why You Might be Owed Lots of Money)
Debt repayment protection insurance is a controversial type of insurance that has recently come under some fire in the press. There’s a chance that you might be paying debt repayment protection insurance that you didn’t ask for without even being aware of it – and if that’s the case then you may be able to claim back thousands of dollars. Read on to find out more.
In principle debt repayment protection insurance is a good idea. It does what it says on the tin – providing insurance for your loans so that you’re covered if you can’t pay the loan back. This gives the lender more confidence and means they can charge a lower rate, and it means you can avoid getting into serious debt if life circumstances leave you unable to pay. There are many debt repayment protection insurance companies out there that do a great job of this and that provide a great service.
That however is true of the debt repayment protection insurance companies that are private and that you seek out. Where it is a problem is when banks and lenders add debt repayment …

Cheaper Ways to Run Your Car
If you’re in debt then you need to look for every opportunity to save money. One way to do that is simply to run your car more cheaply and this can be a big drain on resources otherwise. But how can you do that? Here we will look at some cheaper ways to run your car.
First of all think about the cost of the car itself, if you’ve had to take out an auto loan or buy it on finance then this will only add to your debt and that’s not smart. A better alternative is to buy second hand, or if you don’t want a second hand car, to rent a vehicle which involves similar monthly payments to renting but without your being ‘in debt’. Think too about things like MOT and tax and make sure that you pick a car that’s reliable so won’t cost you too much in servicing, but that isn’t going to cost you over the moon in tax (older cars often have much lower tax and in some cases you won’t even need to pay tax at all).
Some areas are worth investing in though – for instance getting a …

Bank Auctions
Debt is a terrible thing for anyone to have to experience, and likewise the economic crisis and the effect it’s having on many people’s bank accounts is equally as terrible in many ways. However at the end of the day these do also provide advantages for the savvy who find ways to take advantage of this debt and to benefit from other people’s problems. It sounds harsh, but it’s at least better than letting their struggles be in vein and following suit. One example of this is bank auctions, which provide an ideal way for small companies and even individuals who may be in debt themselves to get a range of great things at very good prices.
So what are bank auctions and what do they have to do with debt? Well the other name for bank auctions is ‘business liquidation auctions’ and this gives you some clue as to what they provide. Essentially bank auctions are auctions held by banks in order to sell off the various items that they have repossessed from businesses that have declared bankruptcy. Most businesses owe several debts to banks and these are for a range of things from business start up loans to …
