According to the Money and Pensions Service, one in five people have less than £100 of savings to fall back on, while a similar figure often borrow to pay bills or buy food. Improving your budgeting skills can be a fantastic first step to better financial wellbeing.

A big budget isn’t required to make a big difference. Starting small and thinking big can be pivotal in helping you tackle your problems or reach your goals. Budgeting can help you to better track expenses, save for the future and reach important financial goals.

More than half of UK adults say they do not have a budget, with a similar percentage of those who do have a budget admitting they do not stick to it. This lack of planning and financial discipline causes overspend, stress and can cause debt too.
