  • Losing everything I have

    Tuesday, 22 October 2013

    I have been in Dubai for about 3 1/2 years and have a serious debt problem. Altogther I have 2 loans, and 6 credit cards. I owe 601,900 Dirhams. Yes I am screwed... I take full responsibility of the debts. When I first moved over here with my wife and little girl, I took out a credit card and immediatley maxed this out, as we needed a place to live and buy furniture. Then my daughter needed to go to nursery (55000) a year. Luckly my wife got a job and brought in a second income. Anyway after moving 3 ...

  • I'm hoping saving won't be as hard as nails

    Sunday, 6 October 2013

    I decided to give up a little luxury - manis and pedis - which, when I thought about it, is not so 'little' as I actually can spend up to Dhs800 a month when you add it all up.

  • The Credit Card Nightmare

    Sunday, 29 September 2013

    I was at work today when our office boy came up to me and told me there was someone who wanted to see me, I looked up to see a man I've never seen before. He tells me that he is from BANK A and came to collect my payment. I was shocked and almost dropped!

    I politely told him let us go downstairs to the lobby and discuss this matter. While we were seated, I asked him why he came all the way to my office and inside my office without notifying me. He said that this is because ...

  • Why eat alone? Organize an office lunch with your colleagues!

    Monday, 23 September 2013

    Yes, pack your lunch when going to the office, you will save money, but also share it with the people you spend so much time with everyday!

  • Pack Your Lunch with the Entertainer

    Monday, 23 September 2013

    Today's theme - Pack Your Lunch Monday - was brought to life at the Entertainer with a "friendly" inter-departmental competition.  Each department participated by encouraging all members to bring their lunch, with extra points going to any department who got creative in their group meal activities. 

    All of our staff members participated - there was not a take out container or delivery receipt in sight.  Some of our departments created feasts!

    All departments were judged on the same criteria - how much money was spent overall and per person, and then extra points were given for creativity.  The daily score ...

  • Today is a gift

    Sunday, 22 September 2013

    Thinking that you have financial management issues is 1 thing; writing them down & talking about them looking into the camera is an entirely different ball game- I can tell you that!!

    That's what I participated in this morning, filming of the discussion that Cashy's financial advisor, Rupert & me had...was a little hesitant at first, maybe even a little embarassed, but everything just flew one after the other; at times I couldn't believe what I was saying (it was like my mouth was unattached to my brain), but oh my god....the feeling of finally talking about all this- I ...

  • Save money: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle your mobile phone!

    Sunday, 22 September 2013

    Don’t throw an old cell phone away. There’s still value in it yet, whether it’s in terms of direct compensation by selling it, additional value by reusing it, or social worth by finding a good cause to give the phone to.

  • How to attract MORE MONEY into your Life!

    Sunday, 22 September 2013

    We all love spending, show me a person who is really that frugal that does not have the urge to buy things they want and I am sure it would probably be a lot of people, in spite of them having a plan to save and not be a spender...

    Do this with whatever Dirham note you can retain for a week or two in your wallet, it could be 100, 200, 500 or 1000, whatever you feel comfortable keeping there.

    So daily as you go to Malls, Stores or just browse around and you see things that ...

  • Getting value

    Friday, 20 September 2013

    Thought I would share a couple of experiences:

    1) I sold my car and cancelled my car insurance 2 month before the renewal was due. I was surprised that the refundable amount was almost zero. I challenged this well known international insurance company stating that I was entitled to 2 months insurance refund. They directed me to my policy stating that there was a cancellation charge defined as a 'small nominal fee'. Obviously "nominal" is a matter of opinion - I stated that 2 months insurance could not be considered "nominal". After threats to report them to 'Dubai consumer rights' ...

  • Attracting the right people and situations

    Friday, 20 September 2013

    UAE Saves Week is one of the most excellent initiatives I have seen in the UAE for a very long time.

    Saving does not mean being frugal, it only indicates your necessity and determination to enjoy a quality life in the future, whilst your needs are met at this time. I believe this week will give you much encouragement in all facets of your life.

    When you are determined to save and seriously make provision for your life in the future, then you are not only applying the most sensible principles to your life, but you are also 'Paying it ...
