During this time of year, the world goes a little mad. This madness has only increased in recent years as materialism increases. I am of course talking about the Boxing Day sales. Living in the UK, I remember the days that I would awake in the morning to find bags of clothes that my parents…Read more 0% Sale
When I was a kid, I would go to the shops with my brothers but instead of using the money I had been given, I would abstain and only have a little nibble at what they bought. The pennies saved would go in my money box. Cheeky little bugger, huh? My little brother came home…Read more Sneaky Saver

How Much For Some Coke?
Central London is a bit like Istanbul. Oh don't be silly you say, there's no way the two cities can be compared when on one side you have stunning, glorious, breathtaking ancient architecture and the sparkling Bosphorous whilst on the other there are simply glass buildings with lights glinting on the top at night and…Read more How Much For Some Coke?

I Could But, I Can’t
I could buy that amazing Carrera hybrid bike from Halfords which would rid me of transport problems and allow me to get some exercise.
