Savings Guide Australia is all about helping Australians save money. Driven by numerous contributors and self-confessed budgeting addicts, the aim and goal of the site is to provide a cost-free resource for people wanting to learn how to save money and minimise their expenses.
Gone are the days of ruthless spending, people are learning that the only way to get ahead in life is by being proactive and taking control of their finances. This means saving money, reducing debt, minimising bills, making investments and learning ways to aggressively grow their savings.
Savings Guide will help you:
- Start saving money
- Help your family live a better life
- Reduce the cost of bills
- Minimise the cost of living
- Teach you how to budget
Savings Guide started in January 2007 after finding a lack of information for people wanting to learn techniques to save money. Since its start date, Savings Guide has become an industry leader in money saving tips, boasting strong editorial content and a large user community that actively helps each other discover simple ways to save money.
Savings Guide is based in Sydney, Australia, with contributors from all over the world.
The SG Team
AJ Wilson – Founder
AJ created Savings Guide while still studying at University as a means of sharing his ideas on how to save money with other students. Attending University full time while trying to juggle expenses such as rent, debt, saving and the general cost of living soon started to far outgrow the income that was coming in around study. As a result, the concept of not necessarily making more money, but becoming smarter with the limited money that was available kicked in and the concept of Savings Guide was born.
Completing University, AJ has gone on to work full time while maintaining this website as a way to help other Australians make the most of their money.
AJ Wilson has been featured on many prime-time TV spots and newspaper articles, acting as a spokesperson for the personal finance industry and helping Aussie’s to get a better deal. His mates continue to give him grief every time he pops up on the television.
