WITH fall here, it’s a great time to start saving for a rainy day.
By taking baby steps now, you’ll soon be able to build up a cute little kitten in an emergency – or to treat yourself to a luxury treat in the future. Follow these steps and start saving money now. . .
PAY DAY, CLEAR: Set up a payday direct deposit to send a fixed amount of money to a savings account. The money will come out of your checking account before you even know it’s there. If you’re a Sun Saver (and you should be!), Don’t forget to keep entering the code at the bottom of the page to be one of the 250 winners of £ 100 each month.
FIND YOUR LIMITS: Keep track of your spending habits and figure out where you can cut costs. Maybe skip the daily coffee or walk instead of taking the bus and having one less drink in the evening. These small limits can help you reduce your monthly expenses and leave a little more in the chat. You can also put change in a jar to increase your savings.
BOOST IT: Loyalty programs can help you earn points and offers while you shop. Tesco Clubcard vouchers will save you money on a department store in the future, maybe for Christmas. And speaking of Christmas, Wilko is currently making two Quality Street jars for £ 7. Take them now for the holiday season.
TRANSPORT OR NOTHING: If you need to buy gifts for birthdays, special occasions, or even Christmas, make a list of all the people you need to cover and set a budget. That way, you’ll be more than ready for Black Friday and December sales.
You can also start stocking up on these little extras. For example, the next time you buy something from a beauty counter, ask for free samples – they make fantastic stocking fillers. You can also start adding certain foods and drinks (look for deals and discounted items to clear) to your weekly shop and put them away or freeze them for the holiday season.
