We aren’t cavemen anymore: determining your wants from your needs

Believe it or not, there was a time when all a human being needed was simply food, a way to prepare the said food, access to water, shelter and warmth. In a world that’s getting confused between “I want it” and “I need it”, we thought now would be a good time to have a chat about wants vs needs.

It’s funny to think back to a time where mobile phone bills weren’t a ‘thing’ (let’s be honest, it’s hard enough to remember the good old days when you had to dial up your internet to run MSN Messenger – rest in peace). But as technology has developed, so too has people’s wants turned into needs.

It’s realistic to say that if you have a job, you’ll need a way to get to your place of work. If you have a family, then you’ll need a way to protect their health. And unless you plan on living in a nudist colony down in Byron Bay, you’ll probably need some clothes, too.

In what could be the very first step in creating a dynamic budget (and one that you’ll stick to), setting aside your wants from your needs is vital in making sure you’re paving a path in the right direction for your bank account.

Stocksy_txpfa0fd69bRrz000_Small_683293

Here’s how you start:

If you’re a serial spender, put down the latte and write a list of things you need. Include things like groceries, your transport expenses, insurance, rent, hygiene products, basic phone bills and stuff like that. Here’s a handy little template you can use as a guide. (Be mindful that some things you think you need are actually wants in disguise.)

Once you’ve weeded out your needs and you find yourself with some extra cashola, you can start to map out your wants.

If you’re on a roll and cutting down on your unexplained and unwarranted spending and still have some leftover moolah (you little ripper), you can make a new little list entitled ‘luxuries’. The key here is to keep this list small and only purchase things from this list on a minimal basis or as a reward for saving a certain amount of cash, landing the dream job or sticking to your new fitness regime for six months.

In saying all of that, here’s some #realtalk we think is important to keep in mind when creating this list:

  1. Make sure you save a percentage of your wage each time you’re paid for any unexpected bills, events or life-changers.
  1. Don’t completely cut out any of your required expenditures (AKA ‘needs’). Being stingy on insurance or your savings will come back to bite you.
  1. On the flip side of that, it’s important not to completely forego wants, as they’re the things that fuel your creativity, help you to find your career or your soul mate as well as making life interesting and fun. Above all, it’s about balance and compromise.

Walking it out – Nimble takes on Steptember

Do you dig walking cliches? Then this post is for you…

The who:

The Nimble crew took to the streets recently to help a cause close to our hearts.

The what:

We had three Nimble teams pounding the pavement in the 2015 Steptember challenge, raising a total of $824.26 by walking 10,000 steps a day from 2 – 29 September.

The why:

The challenge is focused on raising awareness and funds for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance (as well as improving our cardio fitness, hello summer!).

As part of our Random Acts of Nimbleness, the business matched that of our step-happy teams, bringing the total up to $1,648.52.

Huge congrats to our awesome team mates who stepped up.

Are You Rego-Ready?

What do all Australian car owners have in common?

Well, that’s easy. It’s that pesky car rego bill that finds itself in our mailbox every six to twelve months.

Here at Nimble, we see a lot of our customers get caught short each time their rego payment rolls around. It seems like the last one was only just paid, right?

So, let’s talk about it. What are we actually paying all this money for and is there a way to make sure we’re not caught off guard when it’s rego time?

What does ‘rego’ even mean?

In Australia, every vehicle that drives on the roads is required by law to be registered. Getting your car registered proves it’s roadworthy, that it belongs to you and allows the car to be identified quickly.

Another requirement by law is that your vehicle must be covered by Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance.

In most states and territories there is only one approved provider of CTP insurance, however NSW and QLD give car owners a choice in this department. Premiums depend on the type of vehicle and who will be driving it.

The exact fees that cover the above differ pretty substantially from state to state, but generally it is broken down into:

  • A standard registration fee (this is your contribution to helping keep the road maintenance underway),
  • A fee for your CTP insurance,
  • An admin fee.
  • Extra charges can depend on if you have a specialised number plate or if you have a heavy or specialised vehicle.

Check out the info provided by your State or Territory Government for more facts and figures.

Our Top Tips for being Rego-Time-Ready

1. Does your bank offer sub-accounts?money in a money box, notes and coins, Australian

Create a sub-account that is called “Rego Savings”. Or “Sneaky Rego Bill”. Or “Unexpected, annoying. pain-in-the-butt car rego”. (You probably can’t use that many words.)

Seriously though, most banks allow you to open a sub-account to your main account. It’s not a whole new account with a whole new set of fees – it’s just an area where you can set aside money for things like, you know, your rego.

Give your bank a call and organise that sub-account today.

2. A ‘Piggy Bank’ called Reg.

Now that you’ve opened a new sub-account, make it your virtual piggy bank. Aussies are increasingly going cashless so the good old fashioned jar in the cupboard is becoming trickier to fill.

It’s about time we took the piggy bank online. Log on to your internet banking once a day and transfer any “change” into your sub ‘piggy bank’ account rounding your balance to dollar figure. Do this everyday and watch those leftover cents turn into dollars, and in a years time most of your rego could be sorted.pizza_square

3. Rego due this month? Time to say no to eating out.

It’s OK to say ‘no’ sometimes. Especially when it’s saying ‘no’ to going out for dinner every night when your rego is due this month. Suggest that your friend cooks you dinner instead? And promise that you’ll do the same for them when it’s their rego month. What are friends for, anyway?

4.What costly things are you subscribed to?

Music subscription? TV? Magazines? Maybe you don’t really need that subscription? Maybe you’ve forgotten that you even had that $13.00 coming out of your account each month. Well, hate to point out the obvious – but there’s a good chunk of your rego right there.

5. Put your wheels to work!

For the many of us who commute to work on a daily basis, rego can be a right little pain especially since our car spends more time in the garage than on the road. Why not put your wheels to work and pay its rego for itself?

How on earth you might ask… well today thanks to the innovative startups in the sharing economy, you can rent your car out while you’re at work or away. Check out DriveMyCar where you can earn $800 per month or more. They calculate the amount you earn from renting your car according to its market value and estimate a return of 42% if rented for a year!

We’ve blogged about the sharing economy before and how you can make some extra money.

Check it out here for even more creative ways to save for your rego.

6. Do you even need a car??

Live in the city? Or work from home? Or close to public transport? Have you ever thought about ditching the car all together?

Imagine having no car and none of the costs that come with it ie. never worrying about the dreaded rego again! Just you, a bicycle and the wind in your hair.

 

Did you find this info about rego helpful? We’d love to hear your feedback –  just comment below.

Nimble’s Daily Habits: Organic and Fair Trade Coffee Anyone?

This week Nimble launched an internal initiative called, Daily Habits. Through Daily Habits, the Nimble team will be working together to make more sustainable and environmentally friendly choices in our day-to-day work.

 

Our first change that we made this week was making the swap from supermarket purchased, brown-water-esque coffee to deliciously ethical coffee beans from Toby’s Estate. It’s Organic, it’s Fair Trade and it tastes good in the mouth as well as the heart.

 

Why choose Fair Trade?
Did you know that 90% of the world’s coffee production takes place in developing countries with the top three producers being Brazil, Vietnam and Cambodia? Working conditions in the coffee industry have often been described as ‘sweatshops in the fields’.
By choosing Fair Trade, we help the change by providing the growers in these developing countries better working conditions and a higher cut of the profit. 

 

 Why choose Organic?
Organic coffee means that it is grown without using any synthetic fertilisers or pesticides and without the aid of any genetically modified organisms. It also benefits the environment. With no chemicals being used in production, processing or packaging – it does not pollute the environment.
By choosing Organic, we are making positive changes to our own health as well as preserving the environment.

 

If you’d like to make the same change, we highly recommend the Fair Trade and Organic range at Toby’s Estate found here.fto_blend_1_1

 

25 Ultimate Cheap Eats in Sydney

We recently teamed up with The Urban List to bring you a mouth watering list of the ultimate cheap eats around the city. You’re welcome!


Some may call it thrifty, others may call it tight-assery, but there’s something to be said about a Sydney restaurant that leaves you full, satisfied, and with some dollars in your pocket.

Whether you’re scrambling for change before payday (found a gold coin? Good on you!) or simply don’t want to spend more than $20 on a meal, we’ve found some of the best cheap eats in Sydney.

  1. Hong Ha, Mascot – Sure, you may have to wait in line but it’ll be worth it when you get your hands on one of Sydney’s best banh mis.
  2. Paul’s Famous Hamburgers, Sylvania – This is Sydney’s iconic burger joint. For under $10 you can get stuck into a burger with the works – It’s messy, so stock up on serviettes.
  3. Gyradiko, Bexley – Put fries in anything and we’re happy campers. The gyros here will give you change for a tenner, leaving you enough money for a soft drink. Win!
  4. Duy Linh, Cabramatta – This vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant has over 100 delicious menu items, most of which are under $13.
  5. Soda Factory, Surry Hills – Head into this Sydney bar on Tuesdays for $1 hot dogs. Yes, one dollar! This is Sydney cheap eats at its almost cheapest.
  6. Chubby Girl’s Bunz Shop, Ultimo – Yes, yes, it has a funny name, but it also has tasty, tasty $1.50 beef, pork and vego bunz.
  7. Sea Bay, CBD – A go-to dinner option when you want to catch up for dinner and drinks (BYO is free) but don’t want to spend a fortune. Our tip: order the fried dumplings.
  8. Lucky Pickle, Surry Hills – $10 will get you a wonderfully fresh roll filled with all manner of tasty ingredients.
  9. Old Mate, Surry Hills – A new Sydney café offering up $9 sourdough sandwiches. For $2 extra, you can get a coffee too!
  10. The Gretz, Enmore – This inner west bar serves a mean shrimp roll. Coming with a side of potato chips, this bad boy will only set you back $15.
  11. Bake Bar, Alexandria – Newly opened and already popular with the locals, grab a sandwich and a little potato and mushroom pastry for fun (only $2).
  12. Ramen Ikkyu, Haymarket – Slurp your way through one of Sydney’s best bowls of ramen in this nondescript food court.
  13. The Yeeros Shop, Marrickville – The lamb yeeros is juicy and tender and will set you back less than $10. Pro-tip: save some room for the fries!
  14. An Restaurant, Bankstown – There’s nothing like a comforting bowl of pho to make you forget you’re low on cash.
  15. Don Don, Darlinghurst – This classic cheap and cheerful Sydney Japanese restaurant serves up simple rice and noodle dishes, and their fresh made hand rolls are some of the best (and cheapest) we’ve had!
  16. Suzie Q, Surry Hills – For lunch on the go, pick up a take away sandwich from Suzie Q. They change regularly, so you won’t be stuck with the same old sambo every day.
  17. Sushi Rio, Haymarket – A favourite sushi train of The Urban List crew, most plates are a wallet friendly $3 meaning you can stuff your face with as much grilled salmon nigiri as you can afford.
  18. Out of the Blue, Clovelly – This Sydney burger joint brings you big, big burgers. You will end up messy, but that’s okay – you can just jump in the ocean afterward to wash off all that burger residue.
  19. Mr Bao’s Buns, Bondi Farmers Markets and Glebe Markets – Ohh Mr Bao, your pillowy soft buns are the kinds of things we dream of at night (get your minds out of the gutters, people).
  20. Ito’s Malaysian, CBD – For your fix of authentic Malaysian food in the city, Ito’s Malaysian do a mean laksa and Hainanese chicken rice (yes, we know it’s more Singaporean, but it’s still good).
  21. Beach Burrito, Bondi – A big, delicious burrito is always a good idea. If you’re feeling a little more cashed up, splash out and add guac – it’s always worth it.
  22. Sushi Suma, Surry Hills – Known for their big serves, this Japanese restaurant in Surry Hills is always full. Order a massive combination set for less than $20, BYO wine, and call it a night.
  23. Baker Bros, CBD – Smashed avo that costs more than $10 should be outlawed. Fortunately, the smashed avo with tomato and Danish feta at Baker Bros costs only $9 and tastes damn good, too.
  24. Bay Ten Espresso, North Sydney – A small menu with small prices. Pick up a sandwich for lunch for an even ten – we love the salami sandwich made with their special onion relish.
  25. Tim Ho Wan, Chatswood – Michelin starred food on a budget. Load up on dumplings and still have money for the train ride home.

25 Ultimate Cheap Eats in Brisbane

We recently teamed up with the team at The Urban List to bring the great people of Brisbane a list of Ultimate Cheap Eats. Eating cheap doesn’t mean eating nasty!


By now you’ve probably noticed our dedication to sourcing Brisbane’s cheapest eats is bordering on unhealthy, but there’s a good reason. Every week (following our usual bender of Beluga caviar and Kobe beef) we find our appetites whetted for splendid repasts but with barely enough loose change to hit up Maccas. Not willing to drop the palatable standards to which we’ve grown accustomed, us valiant few have braved the menus of every reputable (and non-reputable) thicket of Brisbane’s foodie wilderness to forage for sustenance that is both wallet and tooth friendly.

The struggle is real.

Fortunately Brisbane’s jazziest restaurateurs have rewarded our tenacity and kindly dotted their menus with utterly delicious and satisfying meals that save us from burrowing into our shoe budgets.
