I always think money advice needs to be one of three things.
Firstly it has to be straightforward, complex financial advice confuses almost everyone so jargon free personal finance tips are a must!
Secondly it has to be do-able. If it’s not simple to implement it is highly unlikely that any of us are going to follow it.
Thirdly it needs to be bite-size. It is very hard to completely overhaul our financial behaviour all in one go, we need to be able to take a step at a time and see where those steps are heading.
I have just watched a fun money savings tips animated video that made me nod my head vigorously and repeated absolutely rather a lot! The video, which you can find over at Planner Wealth rather brilliantly shares straightforward, do-able and bite-size financial advice AND it presents this in a really enjoyable way.
Personal finance advice really does not have to be dry and we do need to be able to see ourselves achieving it.
Do have a watch!
As a result I am taking some simple actions. I am setting up a penny pot today and popping over to read the brilliant money saving blog Be Clever with Your Cash I am also cancelling tonight’s take away and doing a meal plan for the week.
I will also be having a peek at My Voucher Codes to find the latest active discount vouchers and codes before I start Christmas shopping. It only takes a moment but these codes can generate huge savings
Small changes can really add up.
Can you implement any of the simple savings the video suggest into your everyday life?
