Sorting out the Finances

I need to get a bit focused and go through my finances with a fine toothed comb. I usually check every payment in my statement but have let this slip over the past two months, just keeping an eye on the balance. Now I have found that my dear daughter has over spent on her phone and I didn’t spot it. She was using too much internet instead of finding some free wi fi.

So tonight I will be going through everything to make sure there is nothing amiss!

I also need to find a new fuel supplier and try to get a fixed tariff. I don’t know if I have mentioned this but I have had awful problems with First Utility and found their levels of customer service absolutely appalling. They may be cheap but it has been so hard dealing with them I would rather pay more. For this I will take advice from the marvellous moneysavingexpert.com, which I can’t recommend enough. I am sure you have discovered this already, but if you haven’t then take a look.

And the big one: my three year fixed mortgage deal will expire this summer so, with the likelihood of interest rates going up here in the uk next year, I hope I can find another good deal.

So, if you have any recommendations I would love to know 🙂

    We switched from NPower to Ovo – couldn’t be happier. Cheaper (didn’t show up on the comparison websites but still cheaper!) and fantastic customer service!

    We have just switched form N power to SSE on a fixed rate to 2017. Their customer service has always come out very well in surveys.

    I am with Utility Warehouse. They come top in Which surveys on a regular basis, but they do not advertise to save customers money, so they are not very well known. As well as utilities, they also offer phone, mobile and internet. I’ve been with them for many years now, and I love them! I love the way they work too, people join them to become self employed reps, then they will come out to visit you if you like, and you actually have the name and number of your very own rep if you need it, as well as the usual customer service number. I can pass my rep’s details on if you’re interested. Love your blog by the way, I find it very inspirational! 🙂
