Welcome to the September
Save Time Online Newsletter!

Spring has arrived and it seems that people are happier just for the change in weather. It is certainly a beautiful time of year with flowers and new growth all around us. That's why we need to save time online and get outside and enjoy the world! Alternatively, get a long cable or a laptop and be online outside!

If being outdoors is inspiring you to take a holiday, you can prepare for your tip online. Instead of checking out various airline's website for their prices and times, try webjet to get all that information in one table for easy comparison. For ideas on where to go and what to do when holidaying as a family, check out BYO Kids as they only list family friendly options - and you can share your ideas on there, too. Maybe you really want to be close to nature (or just need a cheaper option), then buy tents and other camping equipment from Sherry's Camping and avoid being overwhelmed those huge camping stores.

The Save Time Online Travel section has more links and information for you, too.

There are also some online resources for packing for holidays. It will save time and stress if you have a checklist of things to take away with you - then when it's tie to pack, you work through the list and go. You may want to have a few different lists, such as one for camping trips, skiing or snow trips, beach trips, family trips, solo trips, and so on. Similar lists for safety checks are also valuable. See our timely & quirky section for some examples.

Ice Station cover

Young children and the road

It’s every parent’s nightmare – a child getting away from you and running in front of a car.

In 2001, 36 children (0 – 16 years of age) were killed as pedestrians on Australian roads. Although the group of 11 – 16 year olds is the group most at risk, younger children also need to be protected.

Led by the enigmatic Shane Schofield, a team of crack United States marines is sent to the station to secure this discovery for their country. They are a tight unit, tough and fearless. They would follow their leader into hell. They just did...
