Informed Choice Radio - personal finance peace of mind with Martin Bamford

Jul 6, 2018

In this episode, how can families cope with the crippling cost of living?

I share some new research into rising living costs and then suggest some steps we can take to deal with them.

My five tips for coping with cost of living increases:

1 - Learn to budget effectively

2 - Trim the fat from your household budget

3 - Bring in some extra income

4 - Shop around for cheaper deals - mortgage, insurances, utilities.

5 - Make some lifestyle changes - i.e. drive less, walk or cycle more.

I would love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a voicemail via our website, email me at or get in touch on Twitter, @martinbamford. I’d love to hear from you.
