Re: [Special guest] 20th of April - Noel and Finances

Do you have any money saving tips?

 

I use an app that takes a little bit off every purchase i make. So like if i buy a coffee for 3.50, it rounds it up to 4 bucks and saves the extra 50 cents. I never really notice the little bit extra that comes out of my account, but it all adds up to quite a bit of extra saved money! Smiley Happy

Don't panic! Debts can be talked about with the people you owe money to (Creditors). So get a bit of advice from @Noel-Moneycare about how to have that conversation and work out what to do next. Definitely don't get an expensive loan to pay off a bill, you'll end up paying a loooot more than you need to in interest!

Ask people around you if they can five you a bit of a hand for a bit or talk to a financial counsellor.
