If there is one good thing to come from the COVID-19 pandemic it is time. With the ‘lockdown restrictions’ in place for the last 2 weeks extended to May 5th, perhaps we now have the time to think about things we couldn’t before with our always busy and hectic lives.
Now, we do have more time on our hands to think and reflect – time to think about family and friends and community, time to reflect on what we have done with our lives to date and where we see ourselves going in the future, time to think about what’s really important in life.
But we should also use this opportunity to think about our personal finances and see what steps we can take now to ensure that when life gets “back to normal” we are in the best financial position possible. We should look at our various insurances (health, car, house and mortgage protection) to see if there are better alternatives out there; we should look at our mobile phone and TV providers to see if we can save money by switching. Perhaps some of these changes will be cheaper, or provide more peace of mind, or perhaps they just might be more suitable for you.
We should also look at our finances, in particular our personal debt (such as bank loans, credit cards, car loans, overdrafts) and see if there is a way to refinance them. Perhaps we might get a cheaper interest rate, perhaps we might amalgamate all the debt into just one loan with just one repayment, reducing our outgoings and thereby increasing the money in our back pockets every week, every fortnight, every month. Solutions such as the Credit Union’s ‘Be Savvi’ Loan can go a long way to helping us tackle those long-avoided actions that have perhaps been niggling away at us for a long time.
So why not use an hour of this extra time on our hands and talk to the Savvi team? You can call Siobhan / our Loans Team on 01 6325100 (option 4) or find more information at https://savvi.ie/content/be-savvi-loan.
