First Rung: Debt Free Diva saves deposit for first home in 12 months

One of the best things about working for homed is all the inspiring people I get to chat to. One of my favs, and the most inspiring was Tracey Hemingway, who as The Debt Free Diva offers advice and guidance on getting your finances under control and working for you.

One of the best things about working for homed is all the inspiring people I get to chat to. One of my favs, and the most inspiring was Tracey Hemingway, who as The Debt Free Diva offers advice and guidance on getting your finances under control and working for you.
She knows what she's talking about, too. Not only did she smash more than $90k of debt in three years, but in the year since she paid it off, she's saved enough, on top of her Kiwisaver, to pay the deposit on a home of her own.
It wasn't easy, and Tracy would be the first person to tell you that! But it is doable. Check out how, and have a listen to our episode of First Rung about Settlement day, on this link below. It includes some tips from Tracy on setting up a budget to manage your finance when you have a mortgage to pay.

Sorry all - car has now been sold.



Ford Festiva 1.3 automatic in Red
136,000 Kms on Odometer

No WoF, (expired Jan 15th 2020) and Rego on hold - Car has done less than 300 Kms since last WoF as we started to sell it just prior to covid-19 hit - so the car is just sitting in the driveway, (battery dead so have replaced it with another battery).


Small grazes on bumpers as this was the car my daughter learned to drive with and eventually get her full license.
Seats are in great condition, (no tears etc).


Pro's - very easy to drive, fantastic turning circle and great gas economy. I have quite a lot of service history of the vehicle and the last WoF had wheel bearings replaced etc.


Con's - The fuel gauge is slightly faulty, i.e. the needle drops to "empty" just below 3/4's - even though you have 3/4's of a tank of fuel, (what my daughter did was fill the car up and reset the odometer - when she approached 200Kms - she'd refill the tank, which typically didn't cost much). You may need to check the windscreen squirter - When I replaced the dead battery, I checked the car, everything was good except the squirter.

A really neat first car - for learning to drive.

Price: $300

Reno blogging saved one couple $35k... but it didn't come cheap

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I've always thought of reno blogging as a way to document a difficult process in a fun, relatable way. The benefit? Emotional support and maybe advice from folks following your journey - and maybe a little ego bump from showing off your mad wallpapering skills.

I've always thought of reno blogging as a way to document a difficult process in a fun, relatable way. The benefit? Emotional support and maybe advice from folks following your journey - and maybe a little ego bump from showing off your mad wallpapering skills.
If you're lucky, and good, you might be given a couple of cans of paint from your local hardware store, to help you on the way - but that would be the icing on the tip of the social media cake.
Few of us would have the energy or knowhow to turn their reno into a part time side hustle that's both creatively fulfilling, and engaging.
But that's exactly what Moochstyle's Shayden and Georgia Whipps have done - with some pawsome help from their gorgeous dog Frankie. They've been blogging their Christchurch villa reno since they bought their home and Shayden shared their story with us for the final episode of First Rung, our podcast. A first time homeowner and renovator, Shayden is such an inspiring guy to chat with. He makes you want to jump in and give it go. Check out his story and let us know what you think.

Hi all,


The house we have been renting for five years has been sold and we have been given notice to leave prior to end of January 2021. The problem is we have a dog and it appears that dog friendly homes are almost as rare as hen's teeth!


We are a professional family with a need of a large home with garage - and we need some recommendations where/when a dog friendly rental is available, (we refuse to get rid of our dog as she is a well loved family member). Currently we live in Waikanae but are willing to look at all property from Churton Park to Peka Peka.


Any help would be highly appreciated.


Thanks - Martin (021-2474353)
