What happens when your savings run out?

Despite the fact that officially the UK recession is over, there is no doubt that millions of people in the UK are dipping into their savings to make ends meet. This is a situation which cannot go on indefinitely and has already blown a hole in UK savings over the last two years. If you are struggling to make ends meet on your current income, and indeed are reverting to spending your savings, then you need to revisit your budget.

There are literally millions upon millions of people in the UK who are living "beyond their current means" in the hope that the economy will upturn in the short-term and bail them out. However, it looks more likely that the UK economy will experience further downward pressure in the short to medium term before hopefully breaking free to more lucrative and more positive times. In the meantime, there is an immense need for people in the UK to "cut their cloth accordingly" and reduce their spending where possible.

Those who continue to spend beyond their means, using their savings to make up any shortfall, are literally saving up massive problems for themselves in the future.
