About Spare Change:

Let’s face it. Money matters. It features in every aspect of our life; from education, getting married, determining what social circles you move in, even having a bearing on your diet, health and sleep patterns (especially if your finance keeps you awake at night). The ‘m’ word can often summon a guilty dread with many of us avoiding talking about our finances altogether.

It’s time to take control and Youngmoneyblog author, Iona Bain, is on hand to help you get a grip on your finances. Spare Change: Better Ways to Manage Money is an inspirational yet down–to-earth guide that will enable you to save more, budget and be happy with your money.

Introducing seven key ways to approach money, Iona’s easy to understand, practical advice and tips will help make your money go further. How We Think about Money looks at how our relationship and emotions connected to it, Money in Perspective presents the challenges for those lacking in affluence and how debt affects lives and The Desire to Acquire delves into our ‘need for reward’ with what we can afford. The World of Money examines how the economy, the rate of inflation, good and bad credit and how to borrow money wisely whilst Your Financial Goals shows how achievable our aspirations are; from a young adult on the road to independence to becoming your own financial advisor. Finally, Money Around Us tackles FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), the dating game and how to keep a balanced relationship with your bank balance whilst Doing Good with your Money will show you how to help support your local economy.

Alongside quick quizzes, checklists and top tips, Spare Change: Better Ways to Manage Money will guide, support and inform any generation, personality or background on all aspects of their spending and make money worries a thing of the past.
