Note that the refund might be in the form of ‘credits’ or ‘points’, but you could use these credits or points for buying other items from the store!
If you have a hobby which you think could be turned into a part-time income, search for a job to match your hobby! If you are unable to find any job, just put an ad in your local newspaper offering details regarding your hobby, tastes as well as the kind of work you would like to do.
3. If you live in a rented house, try to buy a little home for yourself. Remember that you can use your rent money to pay off the mortgage bit by bit! In the long run, you would realize that you have made a wise decision!
