How to take control of your finances.
Sometimes it can be really hard to take stock of where you are financially.
Credit cards make it very easy to continue spending in the hope that by the time the bill arrives so will the money.
Money can bring up strong feelings of guilt, shame and fear so it’s no wonder that we don’t always want to look at it. The problem is that we can’t control something we won’t look at. When you feel good about your finances you happily check your bank balance and tick off your bills, when you don’t, these things are neglected and the situation gets worse.
Also not looking at the situation doesn’t make the feelings go away, they just lurk waiting to pounce at 3am and that is not a good time to thinking about money!
So, to make it easier, let's start with some house keeping.
The first step to taking control is organising what you have. Like a messy room, taking the first steps can be overwhelming but once you get started you'll quickly reap the benefits.
