So how much do you think about the future? Not what you’re going to make for dinner or where you’re going on holiday at the end of the year. I mean the future, future- when the kids have left home, you and hubby have retired & your days are to do with whatever you please. Do you ever wonder what life will look like?
To be honest, up until I came across GROW SUPER, I hadn’t given it much thought. (Click HERE to watch my video on my own financial awakening). I mean when you’re in the trenches with little kids, it’s hard to plan for tomorrow let alone plan for the future, future.
Now I think about it I’d like to travel around Australia, see the world, live in my coastal dream home with the grandkids visiting every holiday. I just presumed I would have enough money to enjoy retirement, but other than some forced super from my previous jobs, I haven’t been actively contributing to our retirement plan, and like many women who leave the workforce to raise children, at the rate I’ve been going I don’t think my contribution will get us to Toongabbie, let alone Tulum…
So if you’re on Maternity leave, taking time from the workforce or started your own side hustle, contributing SUPER on top of your current living expenses may not seem like a viable option, but thanks to GROW there IS something you can do that can make HUGE difference to your financial future right now. It’s called SUPER SPARE CHANGE. And it’s bloody genius.
By simply connecting your bank accounts in the GROW Super app, you can select to round up everyday purchases to the nearest $1 or $2, with this spare change going to your GROW super account to make a serious difference. Every coffee, green juice, wine with the girls counts! Woop! Now you can tell the hubs that shopping is helping your finances!
