Keep calm and carry on... but do manage your money. A survey of 2,000 British families with at least one child under 18 showed money worries are never far from their minds.
Two in five regret not saving more and a third wish for higher earnings, so it’s no surprise that 40% worry about their finances. With overall debt very close to family savings, and in four cities it’s actually higher than savings, there’s cause for concern.
And yet, despite all that, nine out of ten families are happy, and a third are very happy! So though debt might feel like it’s always going to be there, it needn’t be. Of course, when you’re in it, it’s hard to find a way out, but practical advice on easing your money worries is always on hand.
