Clothing can cost a lot of money over time, and as each season comes and goes, your bank balance will only suffer more when it comes to fast fashion. However, there’s a way of getting timeless pieces that can last longer than just a few months. Here are some tips to help make your clothing last.


Buy More Quality Pieces
Spending money on clothes is something we all need to do at various points in our life. For some, it could be once a year, and for others, it might be as often as every few weeks. However, it’s important that no matter how frequently you are buying clothes, you’re buying quality pieces. Quality pieces don’t have to mean that they are more expensive, but it does require you to buy clothing that’s durable and made out of good material. Always look at every item of clothing, regardless of what store you’re in. Test the fabric by giving it a quick feel and think about whether you’ll be able to wear this with a number of pieces already in your wardrobe.




Wash Your Clothes Less
Over time, washing your clothes in a washing machine is going to wear them out. Particularly if they are not hugely durable or you’ve got them on a vigorous wash cycle. To save your clothing, you may want to think about washing your clothes less. Not every item of clothing needs to be worn once and then washed. Some pieces like jeans, for example, can probably be worn a fair few times before needing to be put in the washing machine. Just be more conscious of how often you’re doing it and where you can, lower the spin cycle rate to a more gentle setting. 




Think Timeless
Timeless pieces are those that will never go out of style, no matter how many seasons go by. Think crisp white shirts and denim jeans, leather boots, and A-line coats. Even though men’s linen clothing is on-trend, it’s also worth it to have a range of clothing that doesn’t need to be part of a trend and can be worn with other on-trend pieces. There will always be items of clothing that are timeless to wear, so get these into your wardrobe!




Use Protectors On Leather
Leather is one material that can become worn after it’s endured certain weather conditions. To help stop this from happening and preventing the demise of your leather jacket or shoes, ensure you’ve got some sort of protector on it, whether that’s in the form of a spray or wax. Just like you would with your car, it’s important to protect that base layer as much as you can. And with leather being fairly expensive, it’s worth getting something that will help it to last that little bit longer.

The more sustainable we can all be when it comes to clothing, the better. Every item that ends up getting thrown away is only going to waste and if anything does tear or rip, then try to fix it or give it a bit of an upgrade with your own DIY skills.

Have you ever thought to yourself who would win in a race from 0 to 60mph out of all of the really famous movie cars?

It's a bit of strange question really isn't it, but I know there are some real car fanatics out there who would really love to see such a thing happen and there are so many amazing cars in movies - with many of them being the main focal point within the movie, meaning they are talked about for years after the movie is released.

Cars in movies are important.

For me, I'd have to say my favourite car from any movie would have to be the DMC Delorean from the Back To The Future movies.
Being an 80's kid this is the car we all wanted to take a spin in growing up - the film in general played a massive part of my childhood, from Marty's amazing trainers to us all wanting to trade in our skateboards to find hoverboards.  

And the Delorean was (obviously!) the car to want to have and it's my favourite...plus I'd go as far to say I'd bet it would have a really strong chance of winning any race it was put in.

You never know, if the tyre tracks happened to burst into flames at it's on it's way to the finish line, well it may just disappear and end up going Back To The Future!

So yes, I would really love to be able to drive this car - I know you can pop along to certain special events to check it out up close, but I would really love it if you could actually lease one out for the day and show it off to everyone.

What a day that would be...

Now you know my favourite movie car, what would be yours and do you think it would win the "movie car race"?

Well to help you decide, Lease Car has put together a little video of some of the most famous cars from movies to actually test out how they would fair with each other in a race form 0 to 60mph

And whilst we could each probably pick out a handful of different cars they really have put together a nice little selection...

 - Will it be Herbie, the 1963 VW Beatle?

- Will it be the 1971 Mustang from the amazing movie" Gone In 60 Seconds"?

or

- Will it be the 1966 Thunderbird from "Thelma And Louise"?

There are a few other nice ones in the video too which may bring back some memories...

After watching the video I found that I was quite surprised by the end result - and especially where my own favourite placed in the race...

Let me know in the comments section the place that the car you picked came in and what other cars you would have liked to have seen in the race...

We’re all looking for a simple and enjoyable way to make money. Generally speaking, we bring most of our cash in through a stable career that we don’t look forward to on a Monday morning. But it’s a good idea to bear in mind that there are other ways of making money out there! Whether this is generating some quick cash on the side of what we do full time or switching up our job roles to something that we enjoy a little more. If playing games online is your thing, bear in mind that you can make both quick cash and more long term earnings through doing what you love! Here’s a little more on the subject!

Making Some Quick Cash

Let’s start with a few quick ways to make money through online gaming that takes minimal effort and will see money entering your bank account before you know it!

Online Casinos

Chances are that you’ve already spent some time playing games in a casino at some point or another in your life. Thanks to the web, you can now play the very same games for real cash within the comfort of your own home. Of course, gambling isn’t a surefire way to make money - you always run the risk of losing and the odds aren’t generally in your favour. But if you enjoy a good game of roulette or blackjack and only ever use money that you can genuinely afford to lose, this can prove to be a fun way to generate a little cash should you win! 

Online Betting Sites

Like gambling your money through an online casino, it’s important to remember that betting, again, isn’t a surefire way to make cash. You are always going to run a risk of a loss and there’s never any way of being absolutely sure that the game you are betting on will turn out as you hope that it will. But if you happen to place a decent amount of money on the right score or result, you could rake in a fair amount of money! If you want to make some big bucks, consider placing an accumulator bet. This is less likely to pay out, as you rely on various different things happening to win, but you tend to bring back a whole lot more cash if you do win than you would on a standard bet. Give things a try with Free Bets.

Making a Career

While there are quick means of potentially bringing in a little cash, you can make making money through online gaming a whole career. Just take a look at Esports! Esports stands for electronic sports and it is an area that takes standard gaming up to professional levels. Now, this type of competitive gaming has been around for quite a while now, but nowadays it is proving to be increasingly popular and more professionalised, allowing high-quality gamers to now make surprisingly lucrative careers out of it. If this sounds like something that might interest you, attend a few esports games as a spectator. You will be able to get a feel for what goes on and pick up some tips and tricks along the way. Then, you can focus on specialising and practising a specific game until you feel that you are up to a standard where you can challenge the best of the best in front of an audience. You can take off pretty quickly and may start getting sponsorships!

These are just a few different ways that you can make money through online gaming. Sure, it might not have been something you thought of before, but you can choose how involved you want to get! Whether that’s bringing in a little extra cash through fun bets or genuinely diving into the deep end and making a career of things!

Many of us see gaming as nothing more than a fun hobby, but what if it could also be a source of income? There are actually many ways to make money from playing video games. Many of these money-making methods aren’t easy, but they could still be worth looking into if you’re passionate about gaming. Here are just a few examples of ways you can make money playing video games.
Become a video games tester
Video game developers often hire testers to ensure that their games have no bugs and glitches. This can be a fairly well-paid job – in fact, the average salary is $84k. Getting into this industry is tough and you’ll generally need some form of higher education related to software design or programming. This is because, on top of playing the games, you also have to report any improvement that you think need to be made, which could involve understanding the coding behind video games. Knowledge of programming can also make it easier to look for common bugs and easy ways of breaking games.
Get paid to review video games
Another option is to land a job reviewing video games. Gaming journalists spend a lot of time playing new games in order to review them. Whilst this job does allow you to play lots of games, you also need to be a good writer so that you can write engaging reviews. The most well-paid roles are likely to be at gaming publications, although you may be able to make money simply running a gaming blog (you may be able to make money through ad revenue or by accepting sponsored reviews from indie game developers).
Start a YouTube gaming channel
YouTube gaming channels are hugely popular. These include walkthroughs, ‘Let’s play’ videos and reviews. Starting a Youtube gaming channel is easy – however making money via these channels isn’t. You’ll be competing against lots of other gaming channels and will need to gain a certain amount of views and subscribers before you can earn anything. However, if you are successful, there’s a lot of money to be made in Youtubing. In fact, the current highest earning Youtuber, Pewdiepie, has a net worth of $20 million.
Try your luck at online casino games
Online casino games can be a way to make money too. This is a way of making money that relies a lot on luck, however, there are casino gamers who have maximised there chances by taking advantage of casino freebies. These include free bets and free roulette wheel spins for new users that can be taken advantage of to possibly win money without spending anything. New online casino sites are constantly being set up as these new 2019 casinos show. This increases the earning potential of using online casino games. 
Look for paid gaming tournaments

If you’re skilled enough, you may also be able to make money taking part in paid gaming tournaments. Some of these can come with cash prizes if you win or come second. Only a few gamers have the skill to earn money this way. Still, there’s no harm in trying a tournament if you think you’ve got what it takes.
