Martin Lews is a really sensible chap. I'd probably save lots of money if I didn't spend it all on working girls and uselsess crap. (About 50:50 on each). I'm not as sensible as he is.

There are lot of ways to save money. You can invest in stocks and bond,this is so far much better than savings and time deposit account because of its higher return. But definitely much greater risk,so caveat...

and that is the catch. You should regard such investments as a gamble; great when they come off but you have to be ready to lose the lot.

The art of investing is to spread risk, not put all your eggs on one basket.  so if one goes tits up the others will be OK -you hope.

I use referral sites, which yes, are also mentioned on Martin Lewis's site, amongst others.  :cool:

 

http://www.quidco.com/

 

http://www.topcashback.co.uk/

 

Register for free and provide bank account details in your profile. Credit/debit cards can also be registered so that you're paid for using them in approved stores, of which there are many. If you want to take it one step further, you can register a mobile number, linked to your bank account and they will actually credit you up to 50p just for going inside some approved shops!

 

So shop for the best deal and then log into either site and see what cash back offer they have. Make your choice and then it will re-direct you to the sellers site anyway, recording that you went via them. Payment into your account can take anything from 1 - 6 months, depending on what it is that you purchase. ;)

Yes that's it,investing is a continuous learning process. You should know what you are doing and most important is you should have an emergency fund. So that in case of emergency you have extra money to save the day without touching your pre-mature investment.

How easy Is It to do the admin on a late parents will? My father died recently, he had a Will lodged with a solicitor, but he did tell me to do most of the work myself, as we know solicitors can charge a fortune, anyone else been down this road?

it depends

I lost a close relative and ended up as joint executor.

He was married and left a wife.

They both had enduring powers of attorney.

so the bank was easy.  As an attorney holder, I now run the bank for the widow.

Changing the land registry to joint owners of the house to just the widow -well thats a solicitor job.  An insecure title later would be a nightmare.  The house was leasehold which complicated it

He had some french shares which i think would be difficult.

pensions I sent then the epa, marriage cert and death cert and that was done.

Scottish widows (isa'a) have been complete twats .  They had been lloyds customers for over 50 years but SW were arsey about the widows identity.  And she doen't have a passport or driving licence.  SW is part of lloyds.

 

but still a massive legal bill  Think a big part was the house title and changing the lease.

Ok CP thanks, I will ask the solicitors how much they want, and if it's the shirt on my back will do most of it myself.

I was looking at the 3 bottles for £10 offer at ASDA recently. This has been going since around 2006 and I don't think ASDA can continue to operate it much longer.

 

Inflation has been running 'officially' at close to 3% a year for a while, but major fuel bills are rising 8-10% shortly. The exchange rate looks set for further trashing against harder currencies, as the UK government continues to spend around £1.16 for every £1 collected in taxes, and prints a good-sized portion of the difference between outgoings and receipts. And over 98% of wine sold in UK is imported afaik.

Fwiw, the USD might not be a hard currency much longer as their central bank continues to print over £110 million USD per hour ( or 85bn USD per month ), and there is increasing interest in virtual currencies, and also whether the Chinese central bank could peg their currency to a unit of gold considering how much of the stuff they have bought in the last few years.

Of course it's easy to make predictions like this that inflation will rise and sterling will fall when you have infinity on your side. Nothing ever lasts for ever.

But back to mundane matters and in the interests of research and so that you don't have to, I've been testing the wines in the 3 for £10 category, and they are pretty rank. The Tempranillo and Rose are particularly poor. The exception imv is Dreamtime Ridge ( Australia ) which is acceptable. This cheeky red number which is bottled in Norfolk, so presumably comes into the UK on a tanker or container would cost over £8 a bottle in Australia itself ( probably more ).

Throw in the news that world wine consumption now exceeds production

I predict that 3 for £12 will be the cheapest charva deal on plonk within 3 months, and as a bottle of red wine is a meaningful currency or unit of trade (if the western currencies collapse), I'm recommending to any preppers and value seekers to get some now. Hic! and Happy rest of Movember punternetters.
