A simple guide to understanding credit
Well it’s budget time and apart from the fact the cost of beer is going down (so unimpressed by that ???!) a lot of what is said is easily confused and confusing
Money , budgets, credit APR, debits, interest, fixed rate finance aaaagh ! The world of finances and the words of finance can utterly befuddle people.
As you may know if you follow my blog regularly I have been reviewing the Aspire credit card for capital one a new venture for me as credit cards are something I don’t really use.
