Saving money is difficult. This is a fact we’re all aware of. Having a family with young children does not make it any easier to put money aside.
As I announced on the blog the other day, financial giant Standard Life has put together a book called The Little Guide to Financial Admin. It offers all sorts of hints and tips to help you save your hard-earned cash. Several copies are available to readers of Dadbloguk. Taking part is simple; enter using the Rafflecopter below before midnight on 24 May.
The book, which is only 40 pages long, covers everything from how to save money going to the cinema, how to save when buying a car, how to budget and things to keep in mind when banking online.
There is something for everyone, no matter what stage you are in life. There is even a suggestion or two on how to encourage children to save.
I do have to declare an interest. I happen to have contributed a tiny section to the book myself!
Standard Life is hoping readers will find it useful regardless of whether they are saving for their first home, saving for a rainy day or putting money away for their retirement. The book has been published after Standard Life carried out a survey of 2,000 people about their financial habits.
The survey found that;
- 10% of people make no effort to organise their finances
- Most adults spend seven hours a year organising their music collections, but just 4.5 hours reviewing their finances
- An amazing 58% never review their pension.
Make sure you are not one of those who never review their finances. Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a copy of The Little Guide to Financial Admin. Very best of luck to you if you choose to take part.
