Budgets don’t work.

Here’s why you need a spending plan

There are 3 main reasons why people do not like budgeting:

  1. They can be complicated so people don’t like to use them

  2. They take time to see results

  3. They are not fun

Pro tip: you can't budget your way to wealth, investing is the key to this (stay tuned for top investing tips during next weeks FREE money webinar!)

The answer to the dreaded budget is a spending plan.

This is a simple and digital guide that allocates your spending in 4 key categories.

  1. Saving (Paying your self first)

  2. Essentials (Food, mortgage, utility bills, etc.)

  3. Paying off debt

  4. FUN!
