In our house the kitchen cupboards are adorned with plans, lists, schedules and budgets for the year ahead, and we are thus far managing to stick to them - mostly! The budgeting part is the most difficult, and a very quiet month for me work-wise hasn't helped. We have two major financial goals in mind at the moment: to buy a new car, and to move to a new home. But so far any plans to start saving towards these have come to naught. But The Great British Budget is coming to our rescue.
As most of the country gazes at a wage slip in one hand and a credit card bill (or three) in the other, why not join us in getting your finances in order, and hopefully adding to your savings pot?
The idea is that we all sign up to start budgeting properly, getting control of our finances, and hopefully start saving towards something good. So whether your 2014 money goal is to pay off your debts; to work out which particular black hole your money disappears into; to get control of all your bills with regular standing orders and direct debits; or to start saving towards something special, The Great British Budget can help you.
