Personal/ Family Budget Planning
Professional Budget Services are really worried that too many people are borrowing money or using their credit card to pay for the Christmas and New Year holidays. Why? Because when Christmas finishes, people will have more bills to pay and will have more stress thinking about how to pay for them.
 
We know that most people have very tight budgets.
It is important for everyone to know how to manage and stay on their own budget without borrowing money or using a credit card.
We want to encourage everyone to create their own individual or family budget plans.
 
There are many free budget forms available – go to www.google.co.nz type free weekly budget plan or free monthly budget plan.
Here is one example from Westpac;
https://www.westpac.co.nz/bank-accounts/calculators/budget-calculator/
 
Why not have a go and see if you and your family can manage by following your own budget plan.
 
Many people or families need to look ahead.For example, if you're thinking “lets have a one year plan”, you'll need to think of things like: we need $2500.00 for a holiday, car repairs will be roughly $1500.00, house repairs looking at $2500.00 plus more etc. 
Another example – many people will be planning their own budget for this years Christmas and New Year. What kind of Christmas do you want, what do you need to buy and how much can you afford to spend?  Decide what price you want to budget for – say $500.00.  Work out how much will towards food, drinks, presents etc. But stay on your budget of $500.00.
 
If you want to sign a contract/ agreement for phone/ internet 12/ 24 Month plan, hire purchase, car payment etc. you need to consider:
  • can you afford a 12 month plan
  • can you afford a 24 month plan
  • can you afford to pay back loans/ credit card bills
 
If you answer “NO” then don’t sign any contracts! 
If you have signed a contract – you pay for it!
 
Useful Tips:
  • Make sure you have some money put away for car/ house repairs, emergency items for example, your fridge or washing machine breaks down etc.
  • Try not to use your credit card, it will cost you more to pay it back.
  • If you see bargains/ half price at any shops - only buy them if you need them, if you have your own money for it then it's your choice to buy them
  • If you don’t have any money then don’t buy them.
  • When you go shopping – write down what you need to buy, if it's not on your list, don’t buy it.
  • During Christmas don’t buy too many or expensive presents
  • Don’t loan family or friends money if they're not going to pay you back
 For more information please look online or contact Deaf Aotearoa.
