Money Stories - I didn't realise how heavily the government tax.

I got my first job and it is the first time that I have started earning a stable income and one thing I didn't realise was how heavily the government tax!

What is your biggest struggle with money?

I often spend most of my income on designer clothes, but I've realised that it's incredibly expensive to keep up with new seasons releasing twice each year. 

What is your tip to help others save?

Join initiatives like StepLadder to help you put money aside, as well as budget your spending based on the money having already gone into your savings pot. Not what is left over at the end of the month!
