Make saving money part of your routine
Everyone needs to save, right? There are so many good reasons why. It’s responsible. We’re adults. We’d like some financial independence. We save because we can’t predict the future. Saving money helps us become financially secure, minimise our debts and provides a safety net in case of an emergency.
Saving for a specific goal is particularly motivating. Many people save for a car, a holiday, a wedding, a house deposit or their children’s education. Saving for retirement is also something everyone needs to think about at some stage in their working life.
But we understand it’s sometimes confusing trying to figure out where to save the hard earned cash you’ve saved for that rainy day, that emergency, or a sunny day on a yacht in the Mediterranean.
First Financial can help.
A realistic, achievable short-term savings goal is an important aspect of getting you in the savings habit.
For example, reducing spending on non-essential items and of course drastically restricting the use of your credit card can be easy ways to free up cash for saving.
Setting up a direct debit is also a fuss-free way to make you save. Once it’s set up, the withdrawals and deposits happen automatically and you don’t miss what you don’t see.
First Financial can look at which savings accounts suit your goals, your timeframe and your circumstances.
Once you’re in the regular habit of putting money aside, saving for the long-term becomes just part of your financial life.
But where to save?
Savings accounts are an obvious choice, but long-term savings also come in the form of investments and retirement planning.
The team at First Financial can explore these options with you to provide a saving solution that is right for you.
