Budgeting

When you move in there are many things you need to pay for.  You will need enough money to pay for your rent, council tax, electricity, gas, phone, travel, TV licence, food and drink, clothes and shoes, toiletries, credit cards and loans.  As soon as you move in you should work out what you spend on these things each week so you know how much money you will have left over.

Do you need to work out where your money is going? If you need some help with your budgeting speak to one of our Money Mentors, Rob or Clare today on 0800 633 5500 or email the team on FinancialInclusion@Willow-Park.co.uk
