Rob Lucas thanks Tammy from MyBudget for her assistance this week

Preparing his first budget in over 17 years, Treasurer Lucas wasn’t really sure where to start.

‘Yeah, it was a bit more complicated than I remembered. I did the last one in Excel 95 and was just planning on copying that, but couldn’t find a laptop that takes floppy discs anymore’ Rob said.

So he reached out for some help from the State’s premier financial consultant, Tammy Barton from MyBudget.

By next budget we’ll be much better prepared, because Tammy saved the spreadsheet to a USB for me

‘I was thrilled to be a part of it’, exclaimed Tammy ‘once we knocked off a few of South Australia’s payday and Cash Converters loans, we could make some great investments in the economy’.

‘I’m ever so grateful for the help MyBudget and Tammy has provided me with this week’, announced Rob ‘once we realised how much the state was spending on Foxtel and gym memberships, we sorted out what’s important, stopped living week to week, and now we can start living life again’.

When asked about the State’s debt Rob said ‘Yep, we’re going to work on that. I’ll start packing my own lunch for work everyday and I’ll cut out that morning takeaway coffee, it all adds up, you know?’

‘By next budget we’ll be much better prepared, because Tammy saved the spreadsheet to a USB for me AND I emailed it to my own email, RobbyT@ozemail.com.au, just to make sure I don’t lose it’.
