Budgeting and saving
Start by knowing where your money goes.
Draw up a detailed budget plan, and divide your expenditure into essentials and extras. You can access some useful budget planning and financial health check tools at the Federal Government’s ‘Understanding Money’ website.

While irresponsible use of credit cards and personal loans can leave you with mounting repayments, some types of debt can actually help you create wealth.
An example of this is gearing, which involves borrowing funds for investments in shares and property. Gearing can improve your cash flow and generate wealth. But it does have inherent risks and only works when the after-tax capital growth and income return exceed the after-tax cost of borrowing.
Case study: Jarrod pays off his mortgage sooner
Jarrod has a $320,000 mortgage with an interest rate of 9.74 per cent per annum and is making monthly repayments of $2,840. By sticking to monthly payments it will take him around 32 years to pay off his mortgage, for a total cost of more than $1,080,000. But by switching to fortnightly repayments instead, Jarrod can save ten years and over $300,000.
