7 Things: Actually Save Something
You Can Finally Save Something
The idea of saving anything when you are deep in debt is a foreign concept. You simply cannot afford to save anything.
Which is why, when annual expenses like a car service or school uniforms rolls around, you have to reach once more for the credit card.
And that’s not to mention when an emergency comes along. An unplanned medical emergency or a cracked windscreen or burst tyre. And they just seem to happen more and more, it can be crushing.
When you enter debt review, your Debt Counsellor helps you to make a budget. Part of that budget will be setting aside some funds each month towards expected annual expenses, as well as the unexpected.
Soon you will have a small amount set aside to use when those expenses come around. It is amazing how relieving it can be to see that small savings amount grow to match your coming expenses.
