Small claims courts are a great way to get justice, without having to pay extraordinary legal fees. If your claim’s value is £10,000 or below (England and Wales), you can bring a case against a company or individual. You can apply online, but using a solicitor will be important, particularly those who give clarity on fees such as this Preston solicitors,

Remember that the small claims court will want to see evidence that legal action was a last resort. Make sure you have evidence that you did your best to settle the issue yourself and that you’ve given the defendant ample time to respond. However, if they haven’t got the money to pay you, claiming won’t work. read more…

What Has Charlie Been Up To?

2014 June 18

charlie_imageSo as a lot of you may have noticed, I’ve been spotty over the last couple of months in writing posts, and some of you may be wondering why. Well, I’ve recently started practicing what I’ve been preaching about providing multiple streams of income.

  1. – At the first of the year, Aaron, Laurie, and I started a new niche blog about raising backyard chickens. In January, we launched, which is a guide/blog on how to raise chickens in your backyard.We post weekly videos and blogs about helpful tips in raising backyard chickens, lessons learned, how to tips, recipes, and much more. I’ve been able to leverage the experiences I have with my 26 backyard chickens, and provide insights into the things we have learned.

End of Spring Book Giveaway

by Aaron

aaron_image1One of the benefits of having a personal finance site is that often times book publishers and authors gift us with their wonderful finance-related books. The downside to that is we cannot possibly read them all (nor keep em all).

So, we thought we’d do a little late-spring cleaning and give them a new home! We’d love to send them to some of our faithful readers as a thank you for participating in our little community.  read more…

Walmart Savings Catcher Review: A 30-day Trial

2014 May 21
by Laurie

laurieIn light of Aaron’s recent post on the Walmart Savings Catcher, I thought I’d do a little trial run. Those of you who know my blog know that I’m a huge fan of saving money, and I’m a bit of a cynic at heart. Just because someone says that they offer the lowest prices, I don’t believe them, and I work hard to find the best deals – especially on groceries and toiletries – and pay the least that I can in all circumstances. So when I read Aaron’s post about Walmart’s Savings Catcher, I was intrigued to say the least. Could it really save me money – someone who works fervently to find the best deals anyway?

I decided to do a 30-day Walmart Savings Catcher trial, starting on April 14th, the day of Aaron’s post.  read more…
