Over the last month, I have been working on saving money and time by making sure my bills were being paid by Direct Debit.  I want to share with you how getting your bills paid for by Direct Debit means you have more time for yourself (and the family)!

So I am going to admit that the majority of our bills were already being paid for by Direct Debit, including our gas, electricity, water and council tax. However, this month not only did we change our credit card, but we also switched our bank account.
I have to admit I was pretty anxious as to how everything would work, especially with our new bank account, but I needn’t have concerned myself. Using the Current Account Switch Service all of our payments in and out, including Direct Debits, automatically moved across to our new account.  That was a real relief and better still I didn’t need to do anything.

Secondly, I made sure that we had a Direct Debit in place for our new credit card.  I was really surprised that we could set up the Direct Debit online and didn’t need to post a form.  I love the fact that we have a Direct Debit in place so that I never miss a payment if we use the card and at least the minimum allowance would be paid saving me from late payment fines.

So let’s talk about the time saved from doing boring old family admin.  I have to admit I am a big fan of doing it once and doing it right and that is why Direct Debit works for me and my family.  I know that next month I do not have to pay any of those bills manually that I have Direct Debits set up for.   It also meant that I didn’t have to concern myself about any bills due when we went on our recent holiday to France and I could just enjoy the time with my family.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop.

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers.
