Payplanplus Helps Payplan Clients Save Money Amidst Financial Turmoil

Written by at PayPlan, Grantham on

Volatile and Unpredictable – A Week of Financial Turmoil

The last seven days have been some of the most volatile, unpredictable and potentially damaging to the world’s economy for several decades.

In the UK alone, the financial problems of its largest mortgage lender HBOS has prompted a massive takeover deal worth £12.2 billion by Lloyds TSB.

UK Mortgage lending has itself recorded a 36% drop compared with August last year, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). And worldwide, the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and the problems facing large investment and insurance companies like Merrill Lynch and AIG have led to fears of financial meltdown across the world’s strongest economies. Many financial commentators are now more nervous than ever about what this means for consumers.

Many UK Families Struggling Financially for Several Years

However, it’s easy to forget that many families in the UK were already financially overstretched, well before the Credit Crunch and recent hikes in food, petrol, gas and electricity prices hit home. Consumer debts such as credit cards had already reached record levels, and many individuals, families and businesses had found themselves with serious debt problems resulting from years of overspending and budget mis-management.

Recent problems – such as rising inflation, rising living costs and rising unemployment – can only add to what was already becoming a problem too big to handle for many in the UK.

    Easy Ways To Organize Your Finances

    Taking control of your finances can feel like a part-time job. Some simple tips can help you streamline your time, organize your finances and reduce the stress of money matters.

    1. Keep Your Bills in One Place

    When the mail comes, make sure it goes in one place. Misplaced bills can be the cause of unwanted late fees and can damage your credit rating. Whether it’s a drawer, a box, or a file, be consistent. Size is also important. If you get a lot of mail, use an area that won’t get filled up too quickly.

    2. Pay Your Bills on Schedule

    Bill paying can be simplified if it’s done at scheduled times during the month. Depending on how many bills you receive, you can establish set times each month when none of your bills will be late. If you’re paying bills as you receive them, chances are you’re spending too much time in front of the checkbook. Although bills may state “Payable Upon Receipt”, there’s always a grace period. Call the creditor to find out when they need to receive payment before the bill is considered late.
