You may have noticed the new button on the right-hand-side of my blog. Although, chances are, you're frantically looking for it now.
It's the one under 'About Me'.
Febusave. ANZ. Found it?
What is it all about? Febusave is an initiative to create awareness of women's financial security and savings.
Why am I supporting it? Not long after I joined Twitter, the lovely Sarah from the blog Oh The Possibilities made me aware of the fact that Australian Women Online were looking for female bloggers to become ambassadors for Febusave. So I looked it up.
The statistics are scary. The majority of women would last less than three months on their savings if they were to lose their job.
So February is the month to become aware of how much you spend. It's the time to give up something and get saving.
Go on, I dare you.
Click on that lovely new button. It will take you to the Febusave website. Join up and pledge to go without something for the month. You could even win money for doing it.
What does it mean for Writing Out Loud? During the month of February, I'll be trying to break through that forbidden topic: money. I've already told you about giving birth, my big fears, and my not-so-great mothering moments. Oh, and some of my secret recipes. So surely we can have a few chats about money.
