Managing your money
What budgeting is about and the types of help you may be able to get to help you manage your money better.
Budgeting gives you control of your money – and your life. It lets you see how much money you have, what you spend it on and can help you think about ways to make your money go further. Thinking carefully about where your money goes also gives you opportunities to explore ways to improve your situation.
By budgeting, you can:
- pay off your debts faster
- keep up with your bills
- save for the things you want
- be more prepared for unplanned expenses
