Are you ready to #TakeTheSavingsChallenge?

Are you ready to take the savings challenge?

Saving money is a good idea. Scratch that – it’s a great idea.

Because saving, whether big or small, can open up a world of opportunity. But, let’s be honest, saving money is tough, now more so than ever, and often can be daunting just to think about.

But saving can be simple, easy and rewarding. It takes just three steps.

Set your goal

Set a target amount that you can save each month for 12 months, whether it’s £5, £20 or £100, it will make a difference! Take stock of what you have coming in and what you spend in a typical month to see how much you can put away comfortably

Make it a habit

Pay yourself first before paying anything else, then you can work within your new budget. Set up automatic transfers or set yourself a reminder for when you get paid.

Reward yourself

Rewards don’t need to cost a lot, or be complicated, but they are crucial in helping you stay motivated. You could buy a new book, treat yourself to a favorite dessert, or go to a movie. Remember that the key is to balance rewarding yourself with maintaining your savings discipline
