So your place is confirmed, your accommodation is sorted, and you’re ready to start this new adventure at university. It’s a big turning point in anyone’s life, and there’s so much you have to get sorted in order to be ready and to hit the ground running on freshers’ week and to get you set up for the start of your course. There are quite a lot of things to consider, but as it’s likely you’ll be tight for space in your new student accommodation, you’ll have to be selective about what you take to university, and what you leave back home. So hopefully this will help, and serve as a sort of checklist for what you’ll need to start university the right way.
How does the saying go? There’s no such thing as a free lunch. It seems like everything you do, everything you have and everything you eat costs money. But in equal measure, there are plenty of ways in which you can save on the money you spend, and on a whole host of different things, too. So what are some ways that you can save money, which you probably have never thought of before?
Sport, at the very top, can be a lucrative business, earning athletes hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of pounds. However, you don’t have to look that far down, to the places the big TV money forgot, to see just how quickly sporting endeavors can be financially unsustainable. Recently, Bury FC have been kicked out of the English Football League (EFL) for failing to satisfy the suits in charge that they had enough money to pay off their debts and keep the club running for the next season. But they’re not the only club who’ve been in trouble. Bolton Wanderers were set to follow them but were saved when the club was recently bought by a company called Football Ventures from the administrators, and Coventry were threatened with expulsion last season if they couldn’t find a new ground for the next season. Clubs up and down the country regularly run at a loss, only being bailed out by benevolent owners. So what can be done to stop more clubs going the way of Bury?
One of the biggest reasons why we all play videos games is for the sense of escapism, getting out of that nine to five mindset and letting go from all our trials and tribulations of modern-day life. And one of the best ways to do that is to totally immerse yourself in a world that is completely different to the one you currently inhabit. So what are the best games that are set in places that are far away from our current rural, suburban, or metropolitan areas?
So let’s assume you’re starting from the ground up. Maybe you’ve moved into a completely bare house or apartment, or perhaps you’re woefully behind the times in terms of tech. So, what are the obvious things you can you get to kit out your house? And what are the unusual items you’ve probably not thought of? Let’s find out.
When you have kids, it’s very likely that your house will quickly fill up with clutter. And even if you don’t you’ve probably gotten to a stage at some point where your home is a bit of a mess. Once in a while we can all do with a good clearout, and as well as giving us the space to move around without treading on a bit of LEGO or the remote to yet another electrical device, it also means you can make some money with everything you don’t want or need anymore. So what can you do to live a clutter-free life?
