How to save BIG time
If you really want to buy something, the quickest way to get it is to save up for it.
By putting away even small amounts of your pocket money, your savings will soon build up and grow into an amount that will get you what you’re after.
- Whenever you get pocket money, deposit a regular amount straight into your savings account.
- Offer to help around the house to earn extra pocket money.
- Put any spare coins you have in your moneybox and see how quickly it fills up. When it’s full, deposit it into your savings account.
