Could You Pimp Your Ride?

There are lots of famous pimped cars to use as inspiration if you are struggling to find ideas to transform your own vehicle. For example Jordan is well known for her pink cars, so if you want to change the colour of your own vehicle it's not impossible to do. Paris Hilton also has a pink car - and her Bentley pink on the inside as well as the outside, in case you were wondering!

Of course you can pimp out your car in lots of ways, and not just by changing the colour. Jack Osbourne of the famous Osbourne family has a selection of zombies painted onto the bonnet of his car. And if you want to see the difference you can make to the interior of a van when money is no object, look inside P Diddy's Chevy Express. This boasts a wine cooler and a plasma screen, among other things. No doubt it is a home from home.

How to Save Money on Your Utility Bills

In these harsh economic times people are looking to save money wherever they can. Let's face it pay rises are minimal & in fact many people have had pay cuts & lots more count themselves lucky to still be employed. Therefore the only way to get more money in your pocket is to save on what you are already spending.

Utility payments for residential properties are just like a businesses fixed costs in that they are expenses that must be paid, however if you can make savings you increase your "bottom line" ie profit. So in the case of residential customers you can increase the cash in your pocket by saving on your fixed costs.

Saving on utilities however is not as easy as it should be, many utility providers have numerous "plans" that you can be on, all with different tariffs, such as; Standard Rate, Online Saver, Internet Plan, Saver 50, Fixed Tariff etc etc. In my opinion utility companies deliberately confuse consumers who then end up staying on the same payment plan to save on the hassle of switching. This means that thousands of people are paying too much for their utilities. The government is trying to force the big utility providers to make their bills easy to understand, for instance from April 2011 all providers had to provide annual usages on gas & electric bills, this was to make it easier to compare costs with other suppliers. They are now trying to get these same providers to cut down on the number of tariffs available to cut confusion for customers.

Budget Planning And Your Financial Freedom

Budgeting and Cash Flow.....two simple phrases that you would expect to learn the meaning of in grade school. If not, certainly by High School. Well guess what...NEITHER!!! I suspect this is the main reason why so many young people get into financial trouble at such an early age. They have no idea how the whole process works. Did you hear the joke about the newlyweds says "Why do we always run out of money before we run out of month", the other one snaps back "We can't be out of money, we have plenty of checks left!" The truth of the matter is that without proper budget planning, your financial freedom will be at risk!


When starting out to prepare a budget you must keep one underlying principle at the front of your mind. That is Honesty is the best policy. When you first start out, you have to do some estimating. Here is where you have to be truthful to yourself. For instance, if you are trying to figure out how much you spend on food each day, don't forget the daily stop to Java Palace on the way to work, or the afternoon snack at the office canteen etc. etc. A well thought out Budget will keep you on track to meeting any and all the goals that you set for yourself. Additionally, just writing down everything on paper that you are going to need when budget planning will help you uncover all the black holes that mysteriously consume your paycheck, month after month. Once you have your Budget in place, honesty has to kick in again. You have to honestly try to stick to your Budget or else you will fail. It does not happen automatically. There will be certain parts of Budget Planning that you can put on auto pilot. Doing so will help you in your quest to achieve financial freedom.
