Financial Planning Week 21-27 November 2011

Written by Karen Bryan

financial planning week 2011Financial Planning Week runs from 21 – 27 November 2011. The purpose is to highlight the importance of “financial fitness” to the public. You’ll find lots of useful information on the site to get you started doing your own financial planning. I like the theme “Your Money, Your Life” as it aligns with Help Me To Save’s philosophy of using your income as a tool to get the life you want. Below are my guidelines to kick start your financial planning:

  1. Make a budget so you can clearly identify your spending versus income.
  2. Decide on your essential expenses and what can be cut back to save money.
  3. Build up an emergency fund.
  4. Look at ways to plan for tomorrow.
