Hacks to save you cash and romance to spice life up
Dear Valued Subscriber,
At this time of the year, after the expense of Christmas, the holiday period and getting our children back to school, many of us are looking to save some money.
And of course one of the big expenses is sitting right in our pockets - smartphones.
Smartphone users are trying to keep up with the latest and fanciest devices could be unnecessarily spending a small fortune just to ensure they have the newest technology.
Many are spending plenty to have the newest device and fattest plan.
But telco comparison website WhistleOut's spokeswoman Joseph Hanlon said customers should instead take a deep breath and instead drill down into ways to save on their devices before rushing to update their phone.
Mobile phone number portability has made it easier than ever to switch and there's plenty of carriers outside of the biggest three that offer enticing deals. You can read more about that here.
As a valued subscriber, we want to show you practical ways you can save money.
And there's some great advice for young people on how they can avoid a mistake which could cost them big time in the long run.
If you're looking to get ahead in your mortgage payments, have you considered using your own home to boost your income?
Lots of people are - whether they are young people accommodating backpackers or empty nesters looking to generate some income from the spare rooms.
But, life shouldn't be all about just money.
What about a little romance - or some fun?
You've probably seen all the discussion around the Super Bowl promo of a new Crocodile Dundee movie.
While it was a tourism promo for Australia, we reckon it's a great idea - and have even launched a petition for Aussies to support a return of Dundee to the big screen.
For those looking for something a little more steamy, romance publishing powerhouse Mills & Boon has launched a new line of novels for a 2018 audience - featuring empowered women, modern storylines and extremely descriptive sex scenes.
To celebrate the launch of the appropriately named DARE series and our search for a Summer Romance Writer competition, and as a special gift for subscribers, we are proud to present a day-by-day serialised release of one of the first DARE books: Off Limits, by popular author Clare Connelly.
Happy reading and thanks for being a valued subscriber,
