Fighting Hay Fever With A Dehumidifier

*Affiliate link.

I have had Hay Fever every summer for the last 3 years. If you have been reading Fashion and Style Policer for some years, you would know all about my summer health issues. I am still not completely sure what triggers my allergy but I have prescribed medicine I now take for it, which has been helpful. The over the counter hay fever medicines do nothing for me. My Hay Fever can get really intense, so I had to get more effective medication for it.

I start to take my medication just before summer so it works better. I did that this year and the first few weeks were blissful. But these past few days have been very hard. My Hay Fever is really messing with my sinuses and has left me feeling very poorly.

I have had many articles and tried many different ways to relieve these symptoms but not really had much luck. It has been so bad that it has started to affect my sleep which sucks. I am proper grumpy when I don’t get enough sleep, so these past few days, I have had the zombie feeling. Which is why I ordered a Dehumidifier. I read somewhere that Dehumidifiers can relieve Hay Fever symptoms. So I quickly placed an order for the DIMPLEX Forte Dehumidifier. I have used it for some days now and I can say it has relieved my Hay Fever. I sleep a lot better with this Dehumidifier on. It is really getting rid of unwanted moisture in my home, and I am thankful a product like this exist. It is great to be able to keep my home at a comfortable humidity level.

DIMPLEX Forte Dehumidifier

This Dehumidifier reduces moisture content in the air. It is movable with wheels and light enough to carry or wheel from room to room. I have had it in various rooms in our house already, and it is really working hard to get rid of unwanted moisture in our home. It is great for anyone that suffers from airborne allergies such as asthma and hay fever. Also, minimising the moisture content in the house prevents excessive humidity in the air which can prevent damp forming.

I love this DIMPLEX Forte Dehumidifier so much that I blogged about it. You can watch the new video on our YouTube Channel below.

How to create income as a blogger

Blogging gives me so much joy. It has literally changed my life for the better in all areas. I am happy with the freedom and flexibility my job gives me. It has allowed me work from home, and care for my growing family. Blogging has also opened my eyes to other ways I can make money online, working from home. 10 Years ago, I didn’t know what blogging was about and didn’t read any blogs.

So much has changed in the last few years. I now know so much about blogging, thanks to running Fashion and Style Police for over 6 years. In this last 6 years, I have set up another blog and shut it down after running it for a year or so. I have written a book – How to Cash in as a Blogger (available on only Amazon as eBook). Also, I have become a Copywriter, Social Media Manager and Blogger Outreach Consultant. I have also set up a YouTube Chanel which I plan to work on some more this year.

Over the years, I have learnt various ways of creating income as a blogger. I have played around with many of them and these have been the most successful for me –

 

Sponsored Posts

This happens when brands pay you to write about their products and services. Sometimes, SEOs are only after a link to their client’s website in the post and are not too bothered about how you word the entire post. I earn a living by publishing sponsored posts on this blog. Sponsored posts bring the most income for me.  Brands contact me most of the time for sponsored posts. Sometimes I indicate interest when I see a tweet or Facebook post requesting bloggers for a campaign.

 

Ads on Social Media

I make money on social media by posting ads for brands. Sometimes, the brand may have a social media campaign, and after accounts with a certain number of followers/engagement. Most of the time, social media ads are requested together with sponsored posts, but a few times, they come standalone. It is worth growing your social media platforms with real followers and engagement if you plan to monetising them.

Affiliate Marketing

Another great way of making money as a blogger is through affiliate marketing. I have used quite a few and made some money off them. My current favourite is the Amazon Associates. It is working so well for me at the moment. There are so many great products available on Amazon, which means many different opportunities to make money.

 

Banner Ads

I make some money thanks to Banner Ads. I am signed up with WordAds, and I am happy with the income I am making from it. I also have banner ads I run for other brands outside of WordAds. It is a great way to make money once your blog is established. I usually agree on a fixed fee by month with private clients.

 

Selling Products and Services

I have found various copywriting, social media management and blogger outreach clients thanks to my blog – Fashion and Style Police. Many of my clients have found me one way or the other thanks to my online presence – through the blog or social media platforms. I also send blog readers to my   eBook – How to Cash in as a Blogger on Amazon. If you have a product or skill to advertise, having a blog will definitely help you get the word out there.

Money Saving Tips for the Self Employed

*Collaborative post.

 

Working for your self can be very tricky. One month can be very busy with you making more money than you know what to do with it. Another month can have you literally surviving with the coins in your wallet. Which is why you have to be savvy with your money to survive as a self-employed person. You can not afford to spend every penny you make because you never know how busy or not busy the next month would be.  This is the reason why many people cannot afford to work for themselves.

When there is no steady pay check, many people will struggle to manage their money. They may easily find themselves struggling to pay their monthly bills, when work is quiet. Which is why I am grateful there are credit facilities like CashLady and Credit Cards to use on essentials when money is tight. You never know when you will need services like them, so it is good to know they are available.

 

Should You Take A Pay Cut To Advance Your Career image

 

Here are some money saving tips for the self employed –

 

Buy everything you need online

This may not sound like a money-saving tip but trust me it is. I do 99% of my shopping online. The 1% is when I am out and about and need to grab something. Or the odd time we run out of groceries, and I need to head out to our local supermarket to grab some essentials. I do all my shopping online because he saves me money. Shopping in the stores is way too expensive for me. Apart from the fact that I have to get to the shops physically, which costs money obviously, I am usually tempted to buy more than I planned to buy. Shopping online keeps me focused. I buy exactly what I need without wasting money on what the shops want me to “need”.

 

Do it yourself

I try to do all I can myself. So childcare, cleaning, cooking and everything in between, I do myself. Managing my time and working from home helps me sort out my chores and daily activities. That way I save my money. Outsourcing jobs like these means you spend more money. So doing it myself helps my money go for longer. It also allows me spend more time with my growing kids. I am proud to say I have never paid for childcare, thanks to me being able to work from home.

 

Meal Plan

To avoid wasting food and eating out way more than you can afford to, you need to have a weekly meal plan. My health  and wallet has changed for the better since I started planning meals in advance. Meal planning gives me the opportunity to include all I need in the weekly online shop. It also allows me cook from scratch because I know what needs to be done and I plan my days towards getting them done. If you don’t meal plan, I suggest you try doing this now and see how much money you save. Also, food wastage would be a thing of the past as you would only buy want you need for your meals.
