This week at YourWealth.co.uk, we launched the Great British Budget- an exciting and fun campaign designed to get Britain budgeting. We recognise that families and individuals up and down the country are feeling the squeeze right now - despite signs of economic recovery.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed that 2013 saw the biggest decline in household disposable income since 1987, with many families struggling to cover the cost of basic essentials, let alone luxuries.
We want to help people make the most of what they have, and we think that proper budgeting could be a great way to start. Budgeting could change your life, but a recent study shows that two thirds of people fail to do it. We hope the Great British Budget campaign will show that whatever your financial circumstances, budgeting could help you to take control of your money and make it work harder for you.
With photo challenges, prize draws and an expert panel of bloggers on board, we're trying to help people see the benefits of budgeting - and that it can even be fun!
We've built a tool that can make managing your money as simple as sending a text. You can budget, save towards your goals, plan for the future and see your entire financial world all in one place. Our goal is for people to be more financially aware, empowered and in control of their money - and budgeting is the first step.
We passionately believe that budgeting could make a real difference - not just to those who are struggling to get by. You might be surprised by how much you can save just by sticking to a budget, giving you more cash to put towards the things you really want. Join us and share your goals, tell us if you’re on budget, and enter our prize draw to get your hands on some high street shopping vouchers!
The next few weeks look set to be really exciting, so why not get involved?
