Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s been going on in the world of personal finance and money today:
From Money Watch:
- Tips for coping with redundancy – A recent survey by the TUC suggests that 13% of workers (over 3 million in total) are worried about the threat of redundancy – hardly surprising given all the talk about recession and the current state of the economy. What can you do to minimise the effects of losing your job?
From around the web:
- How to get out of debt: the illustrated guide – I love stuff like this – a great visualisation of the debt snowball and debt avalanche concepts, along with some useful commentary explaining how to get yourself out of debt.
- House prices fall 10.5% in year – worrying figures on house prices from Nationwide Building Society, as reported by the BBC.
- Higher savings accounts grow – some better news if you’re able to save, as there are more savings accounts offering interest rates matching or beating the base rate than were available in previous years.
- How much does it cost every time you get in your car? – something I’ve been going on about for a while, yet am yet to work out for myself.
