The secret of saving money

Picture of moneyMoney is tight!

Not just for me personally but it seems that everyone is having to watch their spending very carefully. We are all looking to save money. This has resulted in many people making false economies. Things that looked great at first but eventually ended up being counter productive.

One area a lot of people are cutting back is on their vacation budget. That is good but sadly some are falling into the trap of either not having a vacation or settling for a shorter than normal break. As we have shown in previous posts this can have an adverse effect on your physical and emotional health, it can make you less productive at work and can cause damage to your family.

So what we want is a solution that will enable you to have your cake and to eat it at the same time. In other words to have a really great vacation and still save money.

This is where Christian House Sitters can really help!

Out of interest I spent some time today looking at the average cost of a reasonable (3 star) hotel in the UK for a couple with 2 children. The average was around £85 per night without food. For this you get to stay in an impersonal often small hotel room.

A 2 week break would therefore cost approximately £1190 ( $1900 ). Add to this that if you are a home owner with a dog my research today showed that it will cost you about £600 ($900) to have someone pop in once a day for the 2 weeks and feed / walk you dog. The rest of the time the dog is left alone and the house is unoccupied.

But by registering as a House Sitter you could stay in a lovely spacious house rather than a hotel room and it would cost you no rent at all. An immediate saving of about  £1,190 ($1900) and if you also register as a home owner (you do not need to register as both. You can register as either a sitter or an owner only if you prefer) you save another £600 ($900) bringing your savings to around £1790 ($2,800)
