We went to the bank today to open a joint current account and savings account.
It seemed to be pretty straightforward. I guess what we will now need to decide is how we are going to organise our finances in the future. That adult word ‘budget’ is creeping into more and more conversations. While we have managed to achieve this since we have been together – it’s still something I’m largely used to thinking about alone, with my own rules. This includes my monthly payday shopping sprees/indulgences/”because I’m worth it!”. I am not sure how I am going to control these monthly treats but I am sure the discipline will be good for me. We have a future to plan and that will involve being financially sensible and savvy.
So we sat down with “Shirley” who was very smiley, giggly but very professional and worked which was the best plan for us.
