We all love a bargain, don’t we? Well, unfortunately that’s not the case for everything. Although it’s surprising to many, it’s actually your wallet that suffers from fast-fashion. For the short term, a 20 pair of shoes might look nice and last a year if you’re lucky, before wearing out. But if you have to spend 20 every year on a replacement pair, then over three years that’s 60 spent. It makes more sense to spend that 60 at the start on a pair of shoes that will last three years or more, especially if they are more comfortable and a higher quality. Read more…

Many times when you buy a new mobile phone, you will have all of your information that is stored on the old one transferred over to the new device. Once this has been done, what do you do with the old mobile phone? A lot of times, the vendor you are contracting with will trade in the old phone and give you a credit towards the purchase of a new mobile phone. This is good, but, you may not be getting the best deal this way. There are many other options you should look at before trading it in with your service provider. One great way to find out what your choices are is to search the internet under trading in or selling you old mobile phone devices. There are many websites available that can give you information on what to do and where to go to find out more. Apple company also will give you any information on their phones.

In many classrooms, tablets aren’t the traditional tablets that the older generation had for school. In this day and age, students use more digital technology to help with their classroom work. As your child grows into their adult years, there technology grows with them. When a parent decides to upgrade one of their child’s digital tablets, this demonstrates that the parent wants what it best for the child no matter how much the tablet will cost them. Parents wonder how to properly dispose digital tablets that are outdated. To the best of their knowledge, digital tablets are stored in their garages or attics. In other words, parents will store the older device and move on to the next one. Read more…

If you happen to have one of those older houses with a bigger garden and a detached cottage perhaps, you should count yourself lucky because houses these days are built rather small and in addition to the house itself being small, there’s not much space for anything else. The typical modern day home these days doesn’t even have space for a decent garden, let alone something like a shed or a cottage, so you should definitely count yourself lucky if you have one.
Truth be told though, your cottage is probably outdated and might need a bit of an upgrade, particularly since the traditional cottage was perhaps designed and built with the idea of housing live-in domestic staff in mind. Not that everybody whose house has a cottage had live-in domestic staff or even had a need for them, but design-wise that’s exactly what a cottage comes across as.
So what are the upgrades you can add to your cottage to make it a bit more modern?
One of these upgrades is the addition of a hot tub, whether you want to use the hot tub yourself or indeed if you perhaps plan to rent the cottage out over a long-term agreement or you want to have guests over occasionally, like tourists who are in town for a bit. Even if you do plan to rent the cottage out in this way, nothing should be stopping you from enjoying the hot tub yourself whenever the cottage is vacant.
By the way, renting the cottage out for short stay tourists or even over a longer term is a great way to pay yourself back for what you’ll inevitably spend to purchase the hot tub, have it installed and maintain it alongside its running costs. You’ll undoubtedly have to save a bit to have some running capital though, quite simply because it’s not really such a good idea to take out financing for something like a hot tub unless of course, you’re absolutely sure the money is going to come back via something like renting the cottage out.
A lot of the cottages for rent on iKnow-UK have benefited greatly from adding a hot tub. People tend to pay a higher price for a short stay or holiday if the cottage or lodge has a hot tub. The site is great for cheap hot tub holidays too. If you’re thinking of renting your cottage out as holiday accommodation, look into iknow to boost your profile.
So if you do decide to add in a hot tub as part of the upgrades to your cottage, you’ll inevitably have to redecorate as well to perhaps modernise the interiors just a little bit. Otherwise, the hot tub may look out of place and come across as a bit tacky, to say the least.
It doesn’t have to be an indoor hot tub either and in fact, an outdoor one may perhaps make more sense if you have space outside since it’ll allow anyone to enjoy it instead of being limited to the occupants of the cottage itself. If the cottage has more than one room which you want to rent out, making it an outdoor hot tub makes even more sense since you can always add the hot tub as an amenity which people will surprisingly be willing to pay that little extra for, even if they only end up using it just once or twice or not at all in some cases.
