    I need to find more things to sell! I'm hooked now, sold 3 things on eBay over the weekend, so I have sold more than I bought today.
    @Pumpkin1106 if it doesn't sell try Mazuma Mobile. You probably don't make as much, but it is way less hassle.

    I've started bartering ... I'm a remedial massage therapist so I'm exchanging a remedial massage for a PT session. PT is not a necessity but I need to loose the weight so a good option. I'm also doing the same (or part payment ) for DS tap and jazz lessons.

    Subbing.

    I'm continuously checking gumtree for baby stuff i know we will have to buy eventually. We bought a $200 second hand bassinet for $75 today and I found our $500 cot for $200 too!
    Gotta stop buying crap at grocery shopping and start doing it online every week!
    No more takeaway once a week!
    No more baby clothes unless they're on special!
    Start using things we have in the pantry and freezer before buying more food!

    I just looked into my electricity bill (with Ergon) and saw that I'm on a flat rate tariff 11 anyway. So it's does t make a difference when I use things. I wondering if I should switch? What tariffs are you guys on?

    ETA We are a household of 1 adult and 4 children (2 teens though) and I use the drier way too much.
    My shameful secret? I have no idea how to read an electricity bill they just say you have to have our direct debit at x amount and I'm like okay *does the budget*

    It may be your actual meter as opposed to the company you use. I've lived in a few properties that haven't had a split meter so was just charged the one, more expensive rate.

    Currently i'm with origin and am charged: 22.85 c/kWh for peak usage and 11.70/kWh for off peak usage.
