Steps to help you save
Decide how much you can save
Knowing how much you can save, and how long you have to reach your goal can make tucking a bit of money away each month feel so much simpler. Being realistic with your savings will make you reach your target on time.
Set a savings goal and watch your savings grow.
Getting into the habit of savings can feel much easier with an end goal in sight, that's why we think it helps to tie your savings to a specific target and be able to watch your savings grow month after month.
Set up a regular payment and we'll do the saving for you.
Little and often can go a long way. Once you've set your savings goal, it's quick and easy to set up a standing order to make a regular payment towards your goal every month. Before you know it, you'll have reached your goals. Once you've completed your goal, you'll need to remember to amend your standing order.
