Time for a confession. I’m h-o-p-e-l-e-s-s with money.
I try to save, I like to spend, and the thought of putting together a budget makes my head spin. Plus, home learning recently proved how terrible my maths skills are! (Year 6 maths and I are not friends!)
With so many families and small businesses worrying about making ends meet this year, I’ve been reminded that having a financial plan is imperative.
So, dust off your calculator, because this is our Family Finances issue!
We’ve called in the experts from Your First Home Co. to explain the many ways families can buy their first home and grow their financial security through property. Yup, even for those who think it’s an impossible dream.
We have tips from Evolve Accounting & Advice on how to set up a family budget without losing your mind in the process. And the clever peeps at Financial Basics share the essential rules to teach your teens about money.
Plus, with kids’ activities happily coming out of lockdown (yay!) and the smell of spring in the air, we also have the region’s best family friendly events for September and October.
And, as always, the issue is packed with the region’s latest news, reviews and more.
Have a fabulous spring!
