    The best way to work out your budget is to look at your outgoings vs your incoming payments and work out how much you could realistically save each month.

    We've got lots of helpful tips and advice on making a budget- just choose the option to 'Reduce my spending' above.

    Set up a regular payment into your savings account and get going! 

    If you set up a regular payment, known as a standing order, you don't need to think about moving money each month because it will happen automatically.

    It's a great habit to start - you can easily change or cancel the standing order any time you like and you can choose how often you want to save.
