Money, money, money!

The best things in life are free. But they don't keep a roof over your head or put food in your belly. One of the biggest worries about giving up teaching to look after Charlie was our loss of income. Overnight you go from being comfortably off to careful; one month you can do the shopping without much forward planning, and the next you're penny-pinching. It's bad enough when you haven't got a choice in the matter, whether through unemployment, illness or whatever. But when you volunteer...

Let me make it clear I've absolutely no regrets. But a little extra cash is always welcome. As I wrote in an earlier post, children cost money. What family wouldn't want to chance to spend more on them, less on life's essentials? Like the mortgage, for example.

Ok, so interest rates have been low just lately. But mortgage payments still make up the single biggest drain on household income for a lot of people. Who wouldn't want the chance to take a break from that financial burden? Well, the good news is - from Monday - the prospect of a twelve-month mortgage holiday comes a little closer courtesy of Andrex. Buy a special promotional pack from ASDA stores from March 15th and you could win a chance to have your mortgage paid for the next twelve months. And you don't even have to have a mortgage. If you lived in rented accommodation, they'll pay a year's rent instead. What's not to like?

And it's as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • Step 1 - Buy your special promotional pack of Andrex from ASDA stores from the 15th of March (for one week only);
  • Step 2 - Go to www.andrexpuppypoints.co.uk/asda and sign up;
  • Step 3 - Enter the code on the inside of pack and you will qualify for one free entry into the competition.
But hurry! This fantastic window of opportunity lasts for one week only. So, get buying. Then get dreaming.

And good luck!
