One hour to brighten your financial future? Impossible! Well, that’s what you might be thinking anyway. However, this isn’t the case at all. While you can’t multiply the funds you have in your bank account within an hour (unless you are blessed with a sudden windfall), you can put your time to good use, and take an hour out of your life to start the journey into a better financial future. 

So, switch off your TV, put your phone down, and settle down to consider the following. By committing one hour of your life each day to these suggestions, your financial future might start to look a little brighter.

#1: Comparison shop everything

When it comes to your utility bills, insurance costs, shopping needs, and other essential expenses, you might be able to find a better deal elsewhere. So, commit to research online today by using the relevant comparison sites. If you find a cheaper deal, make the switch, as this next time next month, your bank balance might be better off because of it.

#2: Open a savings account

If you already have a savings account, then great! However, you might still find better rates of interest elsewhere, so research other financial providers for potentially better deals. But if you don’t have a savings account yet, now is the time to get yourself set up with a free one. Look for those with favorable rates of interest, and set up a direct debit so you can channel money into it each month. 

#3: Contact a debt relief provider

Are you struggling with debt? If so, you don’t need us to tell you how depressingly awful this can be. However, there is help available, so don’t despair! Go online and look for debt relief charities in your area. When you have found somebody close by, drop them an email or give them a ring, because as soon as you can make an appointment the better. They will then advise you on the best debt relief solution for you. You might also want to check articles containing debt advice, including the following linked article that highlights the DTSS review as another debt relief solution.

#4: Spend an hour on my website

I have lots of financial articles on my website, including the following post on how to make more money. Read as much as you can, and benefit from the advice I have been able to offer you. With more financial wisdom, you will have the ability to make better financial decisions.

#5: Cut up your credit card and cancel any unwanted subscriptions

Do you really need your credit card? If not, cut it up. The sooner it is out of your life the better, as you won’t then be tempted to spend more than you can afford. It won’t even take you an hour to cut the card into pieces, as a few seconds will do. Then cancel those other money drainers in your life, including your monthly subscriptions. If you don’t need them, there is little point in having them roll over each month derailing your finances!

Within a week, or even a day if you spend longer than an hour, you will have taken steps to brighten your financial future. So, take your finances seriously and make them a priority. You will have greater peace of mind if you do, and you will have used your time productively!
