5 SCREEN FREE ACTIVITIES TO EXPLORE WITH YOUR CHILD

 There’s nothing wrong with children spending some time on their tablets or watching TV, particularly if they’re engaging with educational content; it’s important for kids to relax. However, too much screen time can prevent them from playing with friends or getting outside, or spending time with family. If you’re conscious of how much time your child spends in front of a screen, you might find these suggested screen swaps from a girls’ prep school in London useful.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS YOU ALL NEED

 When it comes to saving money in the home then you know I am the first one there to shout about it .


We have been trying to save as much as we can since the beginning of last year and we now have enough savings for a well deserved family holiday. 

I think we could all do with a holiday after the year we have all had. It’s only taken us a year to save and I thought I would share some of our energy saving tips and ideas on how you can save money too.


TURN OFF THE LIGHTS

If you have children then you would be surprised on how many lights actually stay on throughout the day. Being consciously aware of it since trying to reduce  our energy bills, I was forever telling the girls to turn off the lights.

It did take them a while to remember the habit but after a few weeks it becomes second nature and you won’t have to keep nagging :) .


WASH ON A COLD TEMPERATURE 

I have always washed on a hot temperature as I thought that was the best setting to get stains and mucky hand prints out of  , but it actually doesn’t make a difference.

For the children’s stained clothes , like spaghetti bolognese from dinner on a school shirt , spray it with some vanish and leave it to soak for half an hour before you put it in the wash and it comes out perfect!.


CHECK YOUR BOILER

Is your boiler up to scratch and working the way it should be ?.We had trouble with our boiler and had to call someone out to check it . In the end we needed a boiler replacement.

 If you need your boiler looking at then Range heating provide a variety of central heating services from full installations, repairs , upgrades or even just a routine check over to see if everything’s working in top form.


SWITCH ENERGY SUPPLIERS

This one is where a lot of people go wrong and the hassle of switching puts them off . I actually had a look around last year for a better supplier, and I found one , lower cost and I  also got a £50 lush gift card as a new customers , and we all know how much I love Lush !.


UNPLUG DEVICES

Did you know that by not switching off your devices they are still costing you? , I didn’t have a clue , I thought I’f your phone wasn’t connected to the charger then it wasn’t being used but it definitely is , and by unplugging them devices and turning off them switches we are now saving a small fortune.

I hope these tips and tricks help you to Aldi’s ave for that family holiday this year :)
