** URGENT MESSAGE **

Can you help a friend of ours? She’s totally stuck and at her wits end…

All it needs is some basic math skills to solve this problem.

Her goal was to save £72,800 in a year.

She uses a simple app on her phone to track her income, spending and savings.

Every Monday she earns £2000 spends £1800 and save £200

Every Tuesday she earns £2000 spends £1800 and save £200

Every Wednesday she earns £2000 spends £1800 and save £200

Every Thursday she earns £2000 spends £1800 and save £200

On Friday she earns £2000 spends £1800 and save £200

On Saturday she earns £2000 but doesn’t track her spending. She actually ended up spending £2700 by using £700 of the £1000 they’d saved during the week.

On Sunday she earns £2000 but again didn’t track spending again. She actually spent £2300 by using the remaining £300 from her savings Monday – Friday.

At the end of the year she’s totally bewildered.

Instead of of having saved £72,800, she actually saved ZERO and made no progress towards her goal.

She can’t figure out how this has happened as 5 days a week she was “being good” tracking and saving lots. At the weekend they didn’t really track and just guessed and “tried” to be good because they’d done so well during the week.

Everyone deserves a treat right?

But instead of reaching her goal, she’s no further forward and needs your help to understand why there’s no progress?

A. Where’s the problem?

B. How would you help her hit the goal in the next 12 months without having to live like a hermit? What would the weekly plan look like?

There are multiple ways to make this work so they can still splash out a little and still reach their goal of having £72,800 in the bank at the end of the year.

The minimum they need to live on is £1400 a day. Any less wouldn’t cover basic expenses to operate. Food, water, shelter, travel etc.

That said, they’d feel happier and less restricted if they can spend a little more than that.
