Your financial situation and how to improve it

Your current financial situation

The key to understanding your financial situation is to know what you have coming in, and what you spend each month. The best way to do this is by creating a simple budget that records your income and compares it to what you spend, your outgoings. To find out how to create a budget check out our “Building a Budget” video, that has tips, information and advice to help you back on the road to good financial health.

Understanding financial terms

Understanding financial jargon and lingo can be hard — what does APR stand for? How is it worked out and what does that mean for me? What is net income? What are arrears? Here at Sunny we like to keep things as simple as we can, so we created a simple financial glossary that lists all the terms you need to understand, and what they mean, to become a master of your money.
