1

Set savings goals

If you’re saving for something special it can be easier to save your money if you are working towards a goal.

   
2

Work out a savings plan

To do this you need two numbers - (A) How much you need to save AND (B) how much you can save each week. Then divide (A) by (B) and you will know how many weeks it will take to reach your goal.

   
3

Pay yourself first

Rather than saving what’s left over of your pocket money, allowance or birthday money, put your savings aside straight away so you won’t be tempted to spend it.

   
4

Starting small is OK

Think that you don’t have enough to save? Think again! Small amounts turn into bigger amounts as long as you save regularly. Stick with it – you might be surprised at the results.

   
5

Open a savings account

If you don’t already have one, a savings account can be a great way to save money. When your money is in a savings account, like the IMB Zoo Account, it’s actually making money for you – this is called interest.
