Welcome to the July
Save Time Online Newsletter, and a new financial year!

 Hopefully you're managing to keep warm and dry  as winter takes hold. Now is a good time to make the most of the internet - by doing your banking, shopping, research, bookings and more online you can stay inside and leave the great outdoors for when you want to get active and enjoy winter sports.

We've started bringing you book reviews to keep you occupied indoors - and if we can save you some time, maybe you'll indulge in a nap or some reading time!

Our time saving tip this month is to buy matching socks! Yep, if you have many pairs of the same socks (rather than various lengths and styles of black socks, for instance) it is so much easier to sort them and you're more likely to have a pair to wear even after two week's of rain interfering with your washing drying!

And if it's hard to pick whose socks are whose in your house, sew a coloured cross on the bottom of each sock makes them easier to tell apart - as long as you remember which colour is which, of course! Another option is for your younger daughter to have a coloured ribbon or lace sewn onto her socks as siblings outgrow them - she'll love the decoration and it is so easy to sort!

Prefer an online time saver? Check out Recipe Matcher - they will give you recipes to match what you have in the kitchen. How cool is that! Saves you trying to figure out what to do with one carrot, a cabbage and some left over chicken!

Have a great July everyone!

Nineteen Minutes cover


Saving on lunches

Making lunches to take to school, work or play can become a chore, especially if you want something more than a vegemite sandwich everyday.

One option is to go to the supermarket and stock up on small food serves that are easy to pack. Of course, hat can become an expensive option, and not everyone is happy with the additives in many convenient lunch items.

So how can you have convenience, low cost and interesting packed lunches? Click here for some answers!

World Breast Feeding Week

World Breastfeeding Week has been celebrated every August since 1993 in order to encourage breast feeding as the preferred means of feeding babies - especially  babies in undeveloped countries where there are limited resources. Learn more about this week here.

Book Review

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

The Publishers say "As emotionally charged as any she has written, Nineteen Minutes may be her most stunning work to date. Set in a small town in the wake of a horrific school shooting, Nineteen Minutes features the return of two beloved Picoult characters Jordan McAfee, the lawyer from The Pact and Salem Falls, who once again finds himself representing a boy who desperately needs someone on his side; and Patrick DuCharme, the intrepid detective introduced in Perfect Match, whose best witness is the daughter of the superior court judge assigned to the case. As the story unfolds, layer after layer is peeled back to reveal some hard-hitting questions about the nature of justice, the balance of power and what it means to be different. The bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Vanishing Acts, Picoult returns with her most absorbing novel yet. Nineteen Minutes is a riveting, thought-provoking tale with a jaw-dropping finale."
