I am all for making things easier and simpler and that is what paying by Direct Debit can do for you.  As a busy mum of two boys finding time to manage household stuff is often the last thing on my agenda.  Plus I would much rather do fun stuff than house admin! I wish I had been taught how to budget and manage money when I was at school.  I never really worried about my finances until I had children and we were trying to live on a smaller income!  Now I try and make sure I have a handle on my money, rather than it having a handle on me!
