It’s important to consider every little thing that goes into the cost of running a home and with kids in tow the amount paid out can creep up pretty quickly.
From home repayments to energy bills you need to check how much you are paying out and consider if there is something that can be done to reduce these costs.
Making sure your home is energy efficient and comparing prices on energy providers can help save some money, which can be spent on fun activities for the kids when they are home at the weekends and looking for something to do.
The Money Advice Service has created some very useful resources, including an online mortgage calculator and this infographic, which breaks down the costs of running a home, so you can work out an easy way of managing your payments and working out your annual pay out.
