Household tip or trick
The Haven Tips paving weedkiller idea has got us thinking about more old fashioned – and in turn often kinder to Mother Nature – household tips and tricks. Our grannies and grandads knew them, and we’re on the hunt for their house hacks that we should be using too. Send in your oldie but goodie household tip or trick (it might relate to the garden, cooking, shed or cleaning – anything goes) and if we love it, $1,000 could be on its way to you.
How: send your household tip, in 200 words or fewer, to firstname.lastname@example.org placing ‘Household tip’ in the subject line.
Include: your name, address, email, phone number and the name of your mortgage broker.
Dates: opens on May 28 and closes on July 12.
Winner: will be decided on July 13 and notified by telephone after this time.

We know we say it every time, but the quality of entries for our last Haven competition were outstanding. It was so hard to choose between them. Thank you to everyone that sent in photos to convey what Australia means to them. And congratulations to our winner Jodi who entered her otherworldly photo of a green sea turtle doing its thing.
“Australia is a magical land surrounded by sea. That sea is home to the greatest treasure this world has ever seen, the Great Barrier Reef. The reef is home to many special creatures including the endangered green sea turtle in my picture. Only one in a thousand baby turtles survive their journey and we are so very lucky to be able to experience them in their natural habitat. Australia truly is the lucky country. My photo is of a healthy reef with a turtle in its happy place on Lady Elliot Island on the southern Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. This is my happy place too!”
