Midlife is more likely than not the most complex financial time of your life, as you balance the family budget with the experiences you don’t want to miss out on. At this period of time, even the smallest of savings can be a life-saver. It’s also the time in life to start thinking about pensions, and life after work, to make sure you’re fully equipped for mature life.
We’ve all heard of a mid-life crisis, and moneyextra.com is here to prevent a financial mid-life crisis. More likely than not, you will have more people than just yourself to look after, with a strong chance of you being responsible financially for family members. It may also be the time in your life you have been waiting for to treat yourself, so we are here to make sure you can do so, for the lowest cost as possible.

With a home to heat and appliances to power, getting the best deal on your utilities can really save the pounds now more than ever. Midlife is the period in life in which most look to buy houses and make bigger investments in property with the aim to settle, so spending as little as possible on utility bills for the house can give you more money to spend on other things to make your house a home. Not forgetting that with a family, you now may have double the outgoings. Whether it be buying that extra TV, or needing that extra load of laundry, it may not just be you that you have to pay for now!

We are all aware of classic ways of reducing our bills, from switching unnecessary lights off to not leaving the TVs on standby. Yet the best way of saving money on utility bills is shopping around for the best value tariff for you and your family – or even better, getting someone to do it for you.
