Debt counselling, debt mediation and debt consolidation; these are words bandied about every day. Do you know what they mean?

Do you know what it costs?

South Africa doesn’t coupon! We are far too advanced for that! We use apps! Most South Africans haven’t got time to sit and cut out coupons. I have to admit I do prefer the apps as we already have too much litter on the streets. Couponing helps you get your home sorted by making sure […]
