Taking control of your finances is not as intimidating as it might sound. All you need is a plan.
Once you’ve produced your own financial “road map”, you’ll have a sense of achievement and the comfort of knowing you’re in full control of your money.
A good plan will lead you to where you want to be, but to be effective it must be:
- Agreed upon with your partner – a proper plan won’t work if you’re not both committed to achieving your goals
- Realistic and achievable – you need to be sensible about what you want to achieve or you could be disappointed
- Written down – if it’s not on paper or saved on the computer, it doesn’t exist.
- Regularly reviewed and updated to keep it on track.
