INTEREST rates are rising and Christmas is looming, so if you haven't worked out a budget
already, now is the time.

Drawing up a budget and cutting up credit cards are fundamental to averting a rates-inspired
crisis, says Deborah Southon of debt advice firm Fox Symes.
"This is the time for people to sit down and actually have a look at what their expenses are
and if they have credit card debt, to cut up those credit cards," Ms Southon said.
