ICR335: Coping with the crippling cost of living
In this episode, how can families cope with the crippling cost of living?
I share some new research into rising living costs and then suggest some steps we can take to deal with them.
My five tips for coping with cost of living increases:
1 – Learn to budget effectively
2 – Trim the fat from your household budget
3 – Bring in some extra income
4 – Shop around for cheaper deals – mortgage, insurances, utilities.
5 – Make some lifestyle changes – i.e. drive less, walk or cycle more.
