There are so many resources out there, showing you how to manage your money. Be it the envelope system, 50/30/20, pay yourself first. Here are the cafe, we’ve tried them all!
One thing that isn’t talked about when this topic comes up, is how it “feels” to use these methods. That’s what we’re going to talk about in this episode. If you’ve ever tried one of these methods and it didn’t work for you, it doesn’t mean you’re bad with money! It just wasn’t the right one for you. We’ll share how we manage our money and what we’ve learned along the way.
For some of us, giving every £ a job absolutely works. But for others, it can leave us feeling anxious and stressed. We would invite you to treat all of the different methods as a pick and mix, and go with what works for you. And be prepared for that to change over time, that’s certainly been our experience.
