Is $1 million in superannuation savings going to be enough to fund a comfortable retirement? Well, that might depend on how you define “comfortable.” Check out our infographic for more...

Winter is just around the corner, so the usual outdoor distractions—parks, playgrounds, beach visits, walks and bike rides—are going to become less appealing. With that in mind, here are 10 cost-wise things to do on a cold, rainy day.

They say the only thing a baby needs is love and cuddles. And nappies. And perhaps a cot, pram, change table, wet wipes, clothes and toys. Lots of toys. Did we mention an approved car seat? Those cute, little, newborn bundles can sure be budget busters. To help families with financial planning, we are pleased to estimate the first-year costs of having a baby for first-time parents and we share our tips for keeping costs down.

Next Wednesday, 22 April 2015, will be Earth Day, a day that aims to raise global awareness about environmental issues. Have you ever wondered how much impact your lifestyle has on the planet? The Earth Day organisers have designed a nifty footprint calculator that measures how your activities and consumption habits affect the environment and what you can do to make your footprint smaller.

As people take control of their finances and their savings start to grow, they often ask us how much they should keep in their emergency fund. There’s no hard and fast rule on savings—it really depends on how much you earn, how much you spend, your priorities, your other financial commitments, and your general view on life.

Are your kids cashed up? My older two got some money from family members for Christmas and are still plotting ways to save/spend it. A national survey shows that nearly 90 percent of six to 13 year-olds got cash for Christmas, with over 60 percent pocketing $50 or more. When asked what they intended to do with the money, around 40 percent planned to put it in the bank, while 30 percent were saving for a big item, such as a bike. How about your kids—are they savers or spenders?

'I was in the supermarket last week when I heard one woman say to another, “Gee the cost of meat is getting ridiculous.” She’s right. Meat, particularly good quality meat, will test nearly any household budget, especially if you’re serving it every night. The price of meat is yet another great reason to increase your veggie intake and improve your budget.' - Tammy May

Are we spending too much money on our kids?

Government statistics say that it costs Australian parents $384,543 to raise the average child from baby to adulthood. (I’m not sure if that statistic takes into account that an increasing number of children are staying at home well-beyond the age of 18.) Other assessments put the average figure at closer to $1 million after factoring in private schooling costs, tutoring, sports and activities, technology and toys...

Ever wonder why organic berries are so expensive? We read that it’s because organic berry farmers lose up to half of their crop to insects and disease. Conventional farmers, who use chemical pesticides, might lose only five or six per cent.

The idea of eating conventionally-grown foods laden with pesticides and artificial fertilisers is not appetising, but neither is paying an average of 30 per cent more for organic produce.

So, is the extra cost for organic food worth it? Are there some tricks to eating organic while keeping costs down?

Housing is the biggest expense for most Australians, yet many of us live in homes that are larger than we need. If your mortgage or rent is making you feel hemmed in, it might be time to think about finding a housemate.
