Paying your bills
Before you spend all your money on wild nights out, you need to take care of more important things (admittedly they’re less interesting, but trust us, they’re definitely more important).
One of the best ways to organise your money is to open a basic bank account. You can then put the money you need to pay things like your rent, fuel bills, TV licence and phone bills into this account and set up Direct Debits to make sure they are paid.
Whatever money you have left over can then be kept in your normal account to cover things like beer, takeaways and parties (and maybe the odd train ticket home).
To work out what you need to put aside to cover your bills read our budgeting guide.
