Part of my decision to become more responsible is due to the boy, he's incredibly sensible with his money and I want him to feel comfortable to move in with me (in August!) without worrying that I will overspend and be unable to pay my half of the bills.
Another reason I have just started is because there is a Future learn course that has just started called managing your money which is starting to give me the tools to make this change. Please do join this if you've ever felt uncertain about finances- it's a fantastic free resource.
I wanted to blog about this because I think it is not spoken about enough and is a very hard change to make. I hope you will share my successes and my failures and take something away that you can use in your own life.
