Consumer confidence plunges

CONSUMER confidence plunged at its fastest pace in 24 years in the second quarter
of this year, knocked by soaring food and fuel prices, rising interest rates
and deteriorating job prospects, a key survey showed yesterday.

Justmoney.co.za says:

If you aren't feeling confident, don't spend more, consolidate.
Work out how financially healthy you are, and start planning for
your retirement already. Compare credit cards to see if
they are delivering for you. If you need debt management, sooner
is better than later.
