How to save Money

Balancing loans and life

Rounding it up

  • First things first; if your debt has over a 5% interest rate, focus on tackling that before saving.

  • If it’s below 5%, you have greater flexibility. If you’re not dying to save up for something in particular, use your extra cash to pay off that low-interest debt.

  • If you are saving for something that will better your future, make those minimum repayments but put away any extras towards savings.

  • After all this planning, make your life a little bit easier by automating your debt payments and savings.
