This seems pretty obvious but the more you know about your finances the better. Keep track of your income, savings, bills, expenses and debts. Not only will these details come in handy if and when you enquire about what you qualify for, it will also keep you accountable for your daily spending’s.


Use the many online platforms like Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree to sell items you no longer want or need. Then buy something you really do want with the money you make!


While we all like to make ourselves feel better by browsing for lush accessories to spruce up your rental place. Try jump onto one of many Kmart Inspired Instagram accounts and see if you can substitute that $150 chunky knit throw for a sweet $30 Kmart version instead. I mean who doesn’t love a trip to Kmart for homewares?!


Yes, you might HAVE to have car insurance and health insurance but are you getting the best deals possible? Take an hour out of your day to get some online quotes for your necessities and see how much you could be saving. If you don’t check, you’ll never know.
