Ease your cost of living pressures easily

Ease Your Cost Of Living Pressures EasilyCost of living pressures are affecting a great number of people these days. Between increasing electricity costs (around 22% in Queensland), rising council rates, and growing food prices, it can be a struggle to make ends meet.

You can alleviate this through developing a budget that works for you, creating an easy system for paying bills on time, and reducing non-essential spending. But once you have exhausted all of these (and other more extreme cost-cutting measures), sometimes you just need more money.

Reduce your payments

Besides getting a second job or using some more creative ways to earn more, there is a simple way to get that extra money you need – reducing the payments on the largest debt you have: your mortgage.

Switch your mortgage

By switching your mortgage to one that could save you $40K over the life of the loan – giving you an extra $133 per month in your pocket – you could use those savings to alleviate your cost of living pressures, or even finally get ahead.

Think about what you could do with that extra money each month.
