It’s unbelievable… but a recent study of UK adults, who were given various options, using 2100 units… only 8% could calculate the cheapest deal !!!

I’m not sure if this was supposed to be ‘basic’ maths, or ‘higher level’ maths… but it is rather shocking that generally, most people, can’t manage it.

We recognised that this starts from a young age, and so made a maths game which si free to play on facebook, so that you can practice maths: http://apps.facebook.com/booglesmathsgame/

See the article Only 8% can work out a saving.

Expenses out of control?

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Greece has been extended (another) life-line. They’ll be getting €130 billion, with some conditions attached – i.e. to reduce national debt from 160% to 120% of GDP with 8 years… The question is – how do you get to a point where you ‘earn’ £100, but yet ‘spend’ £160? When is the last time you took a serious look at what you were spending? Everyone always seems to have a rough idea of income.. but what about the expenses? Have to checked lately to see if your expenses are out of control??

Cost Cutting – Reducing Expenses

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

In reading a Profit & Loss account – it’s important to look at your expenses to see where the majority of your money is going…

One key thing to keep an eye on are the telephone / internet charges – remembering that it’s not just business expenses, but personal expenses like this should also be reviewed regularly too. Maybe you got a good tariff / deal a few years ago, and haven’t looked at it since. Or maybe your usage/ consumption patterns have changed?

A recent deal which caught our eye was: UK Best Value Mobile Phone Tariff… 500 minutes, unlimited texts, (sim only)… £10 per month !!!

If you go on the ValueMax tariff – its UNLIMITED minutes, unlimited texts, £20 pm! Shop around. Don’t be wasting money in these times.
