Getting into a Savings Habit

5 ways to get saving

If you're new to saving it can be hard to know where to start. Here are 5 ways to get into the habit.

  1. Create a budget

    Identify opportunities to save by creating a budget, if you don’t already have one. We can show you how here.
  2. Keep savings separate from regular income

    It's often easier to build up savings if you keep them in a dedicated savings account, separate from your everyday banking.
  3. Track your spending

    Consider using a personal finance or banking app to monitor and track what you spend. Frequent, small purchases soon add up, and you may spot areas to cut back on spending and save more instead.
  4. Save a little and often

    Saving any amount of money, however small, is worthwhile. It can help you get into the habit of saving. You could make saving easier by setting up an automated transfer, from your main bank account into a savings account, for the same day each month. Choose the day you're paid, and you'll save money before you're tempted to spend it.
  5. Compare and save

    Use comparison sites to check if you could be paying less for your household expenses, like utilities, phone, internet or groceries. If you switch to a lower cost option, try putting the amount you’ve saved each month into your savings account.
