How am I saving the pennies…

Standard

How am I saving the pennies?! Well, I have been selling a lot of my items via eBay and Etsy…I am a bit of a crafter, knitter and all round recycling being! I love to be creative.

Here are just a few of the things that I have made (and now trying to sell)…I could save collecting plastic bottles to use (see Plastic Cash?!); that may help with transport costs.

I have thought about posting a “Hourie” at People Per Hour; £30 for a Conversational Practice Session in English over Skype; does that sound like a good idea? Has anyone ever done that? Are any of you on People Per Hour?

I have also been thinking about just saving money by opening a Saving Account; however at the present moment in time the rates are not that good and it would take me a while to save up.

I do have a part time job; delivering and collecting catalogues, which most of the time is fun but not in the weather that Britain has currently been suffering from!

The weather…

Us Brits are known for taking about the weather – ALL THE TIME! Myself included! However; the weather here in the UK is horrid! Just look below:

Towcester (pronounced as toaster) is where I am currently in. I am soggy and my hair is all curly! Not a nice curly; a horrible “not a wave, not a full curl” curls!

However; in China here is what it is like in Shanghai:

Not much better though; but it is in the middle of the night there! I would be asleep (or being merry withy colleagues) in my apartment. Stargazing is something I would be interested in; I wonder if the stars look the same in China as they do here in the UK?!
