You don’t have to win the jackpot to achieve your dream life. You have to set yourself some money goals and work to achieve them. Whether it’s an emergency fund for unexpected expenses, keeping your savings account topped up or opening a high-interest savings account, the Budget Bootcamp will help set your money goals.

Challenge 2: Tackle your expenses

One of the most challenging things about budgeting is keeping track of your spending. The Budget Bootcamp can help you tackle and set your monthly expenses. Of course, if you’re already a MATE customer, you know that you can save up to $120 per year when you bundle your internet and mobile plan!

Challenge 3: Protect your wealth
