    SCAM texts are rife and a clever iPhone geek has come up with a way to get your own back on the fraudsters. Whether it's fake delivery notifications or dubious HMRC fines, spam has skyrocketed in recent years. 2Spam got particularly bad since lockdownCredit: Alamy Not everyone is aware that there is an official scam busting team in the UK that block numbers suspected of trying it on.

    GARDENERS can save money as well as the planet by using what they have on hand to fill the bottom of planters. The bottom of deep planters can be stuffed with fillers like old cans and plant pots turned upside down, according to gardening experts. 1Fillers are placed in planters to take up space and allow the plants to drainCredit: Getty The cans and pots improve drainage and create air pockets for better aeration and healthier soil, according to Family Handyman. Fillers are placed in planters to take up space and allow the plant to drain water effectively, encouraging healthy roots. Rather than filling an entire planter with soil, fillers can help your wallet because it keeps you from having to purchase more soil, which can be expensive.

    This content is sponsored by PenFed Credit Union. “Free checking” and “free savings” may be phrases you commonly hear around banking, but what do they really mean? Are there benefits of going with a free option? And how do select the best choice for you? Many banks and credit unions charge monthly maintenance fees for checking accounts. “Free checking” means an account has: no minimum balance or limit on number of transactions, no regular transaction fees or service fees, no monthly service fees and no withdrawal or transfer fees. There’s no reason to pay for a service if you can get it for free, the experts at PenFed Credit Union said. If an account simply offers you ways of avoiding fees depending on your account balance, then it’s not really free, PenFed Credit Union’s team noted. “Don’t be afraid to shop around before opening your account,” PenFed Credit Union’s experts recommend. “From truly free accounts to accounts with minimal fees, there’s certainly something out there that is sure to meet your specific needs.” It may require some research to find...

Here’s why – and how you can change it It's a tale as old as time – you want to save money, but just can't resist an impulse purchase in the moment even though you know it's probably not a wise financial decision. © Provided by CNBC There may be a simple reason why, and it boils down to how you feel about money, according to Eesha Sharma, an associate professor of business administration at Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, who studies financial behavior around consumer wellbeing and marketing. Sharma started studying the psychology of money after the Financial Crisis, when she noticed that even millionaires sometimes felt they didn't save enough. She found that people don't base perceptions of their wealth on objective metrics, such as how much they make, but how they compare to their past states, desired finances and how they compare to peers....
