Money is like manure. If you spread it around it does a lot of good. But if you pile it up in one place it stinks like hell. - Jr Murchison

Yoursavings offers independent savings advice.

Hi I’m Rob and I live in a bayside suburb of Melbourne, Australia with my wife and family. I became interested in blogging when I found out you can connect with like minded people about topics of interest. When researching finance blogs I found they were often run by people who are “want to be millionaires”. This is far from my motivation for this blog. I love the idea that I can offer knowledge that I have built up over time in the finance industry and if I can eventually create a viable business from this blog, it would be wonderful. My intention for Yoursavings is to give you simple straight forward savings advice to help you take care of your own savings and create savings for the future.

Anyone can finance their own comfortable lifestyle or retirement and I’ll try and show you that all you need is a good plan and time!

I’ve had my own twists and turns on my financial road and this blog is an attempt to steer you away from the wrong decisions I have occasionally made.

We’ll sometimes need to “get up, dust ourselves off” and start afresh but anything is possible with the right attitude.

I’m going to include a jokes and quotes page to include the occasional humour into what can be a very conservative subject. What’s life without being able to occasionally have a laugh with yourself and others.

I will mention many financial subjects over the life of this blog to enhance everyones understanding of the savings world. Savings, housing, shares, fixed interest, government bonds and retirement will all be covered eventually.

Let’s start the journey!

Yours sincerely

Rob Bredin
