Are you trying to get on the property ladder? Then, you'll want to read today's contributed post. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Buying your first home is a goal that seems so out of reach for a lot of people at the moment. We’re constantly hearing on the news that house prices are going up, wages are staying the same, and saving for a deposit is basically impossible unless you stick to a strict budget that doesn’t allow for having fun, ever.

Author Danny Kofke was kind enough to share this piece with us and help us answer the question: "What is a budget?" Please read more about Danny below. Let us know what you think of his budget guide below in the comments. Thanks!
To begin, we first need to know how our money is behaving. This is where the budget comes into play. Now I know many people despise the b-word just like they don’t like the d-word (diet). Both of these bring up negative emotions for many people because they associate the words with being deprived of a desired item. I feel the opposite is true.
By creating a budget, you can actually have your money work harder for you and, thus, eventually have more to spend. What exactly is a budget? In simple terms, it is a list of outgoing expenses compared with incoming money. It is a plan for how you are going to spend your hard-earned money.
Some people get fancy and create elaborate spreadsheets to help them come up with a budget whereas others (like me) simply use a pen and paper to create one. No matter which route you take, a budget should help you easily see how much you have coming in and going out. It is a tool that will help you prioritize your spending so that you don’t run out of money before the month comes to an end.Read more

Today's contributed post is a cautionary tale on career paths affected by bankruptcy. Read on to make yourself aware of the dangers and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Declaring bankruptcy is never an easy decision, and a lot of people are wary of it for a number of reasons. With a skilled and experienced bankruptcy attorney like https://www.thebklawyers.com/, you can hope to get your life back on the track quickly, but there are some consequences. In some cases, banks can deny loaning you any money due to your previous bankruptcy, or a landlord may choose not to lease you an apartment or a house.
However, there is an anti-discriminatory provision in the bankruptcy law which states that you cannot be denied employment or fired on the basis of your bankruptcy, even if your employer knows that you have filed for bankruptcy. That said, there are certain careers and business opportunities which may become unavailable to you if you have filed for bankruptcy in the past.Read more
