Talk Money Week is a national campaign in the UK promoting healthy conversations about money and financial well being. Rising energy bills, food prices and general cost of living means having open and honest communication about finances is more important than ever.
This year’s theme is “Do one thing”. Small steps can make big changes. Deciding on one easy, manageable step to help you boost your financial well being is a great way to get started. Make sure they are meaningful and relevant to you and your current situation. Are you struggling to think of your ‘one thing’? Here are some ideas:
- Talk to your child about pocket money.
- Start a weekly budget.
- Plan a financial goal e.g. deposit for a house, paying off a debt, or simply reduce unnecessary spending.
- Declutter and sell unwanted items for extra cash.
- Use free online money calculators to help with your finances.
- Reach out for advice and support.
