How I Manage My Money: Sarah Tallack’s Financial Journey

Managing money can be a tricky task, especially when unexpected expenses pop up or when you’re trying to save for the future. In our How I Manage My Money series, we take a look at how real people are navigating their finances to meet their goals and stay on track financially.

This week, we’re talking to Sarah Tallack, a 41-year-old freelance document controller and personal assistant living in Plymouth with her husband, Dave, and their cat, Hera. Sarah has had her fair share of financial challenges, including entering into a debt consolidation plan and currently working to clear £5,000 worth of credit card debt.

Despite these challenges, Sarah and Dave are making strides towards financial stability. They overpay their mortgage by £50 a month and are looking forward to inheriting trust funds and rental properties from Dave’s parents in the future. This financial security gives them peace of mind and allows them to plan for their retirement and future goals.

Sarah’s journey to financial stability hasn’t been easy, but she’s determined to make smart financial decisions and prioritize saving for the future. She’s using apps like Sprive to make overpayments on their mortgage and is conscious of where their money is going each month.

It’s important to learn from Sarah’s story and take control of your own finances. Whether you’re dealing with debt, saving for a big purchase, or planning for retirement, being proactive and making smart financial decisions can set you up for success in the long run.
