Times are more difficult, so this month we explore a few ideas to help with money.
Some say, money (or how we handle it) causes the most stress in any relationship. Perhaps that’s because we all see life and priorities a little differently!
Here’s a few tips that we have found work:
1) Create a plan.
Get a budget in place. A budget isn’t a prison, it’s a guide. A budget can be very liberating (We can help you get a budget started)
2) Find resources and support.
Asking for help can be hard but it pays off!
3) Explore new payment plans.
Owing money to a business or individual can be stressful. Most businesses will work with you if you start a regular payment, even if it’s not a large amount. Discuss it with them.
4) Take a break.
Don’t pretend the problem isn’t there, but don’t focus on it continually. Consider getting emotional support (someone to talk with, who will listen and not just try and “fix” you!)
I trust those few thoughts are of help
