Saving is a tricky business. Some of us are born cash hoarders, while others seem to leak money from our wallets the second we step outside – or log onto the web! Making some small – almost imperceptible changes to your lifestyle can help you achieve savings goals. Here are some great places to start:
Gather a list of luxury items that you don’t really need. From cafe coffees to that weekly magazine or regular beauty treatment -put the cash you’d spend on these luxuries straight into a separate savings account. You’ll be surprised at how quickly savings add up – and how much of your income you were spending on unnecessary things!
For longer-term financial goals, consider setting up automated debits into a high-interest savings account on your ‘pay day’. Such automated savings can substantially boost your balance whilst minimizing your sense of budgetary restriction.
