Putting money aside can be tough and you might feel that you’re not making as much progress as you’d like. Unforeseen payments and the rising cost of living can put a squeeze on any financial safety net you’ve put aside.
However, don’t be disheartened. Even saving a little will give you more than you had to begin with. You could start saving your change - go traditional and save your small change in a jar. Or, you could send £1 a day to a savings account, and after a year you’ll have £365.
As important as saving money is, it’s equally important to allow yourself to have a little fun occasionally. It’s okay to get that takeaway, a new pair of shoes, or spend money on the things you enjoy - so long as you’re smart about how and when you spend your cash.
Lastly, get specific and set a goal. Size doesn’t matter. You could be saving for a house deposit or a house plant, but when you have a goal in sight it’s easier to get into a saving mindset.
