We have a weird and not very practical system where he pays some and I pay some and then we get all confused and we can't quite work out who pays more. Then I have to get my dead geeky 'Mum' spreadsheet out. And gah! Well let's just say it gets a little out of hand and to be honest it's not the most romantic of situations. I now think the time is coming close where we need to seriously think about getting a joint (eek so grown up!) account together.
The account is one where we could pay in all our income and have all our direct debits come out. As well as 600 branches nationwide there is a dedicated team on offer who would manage the switch for us. Also there are a number of free services we could use to help us manage our money. For example something that has proved invaluable in the past for me, when I've (cough, cough) spent a bit too much in the sale at Next, is the balance and limit text alert option.
If you're considering making the big step to get a joint account or are interested in changing banks why not look at the TSB switching page.
