Even with the summer months around the corner after a long winter, there are small steps you can take to help manage your spending and put away more:
Set a budget and divvy up the amount on a weekly or monthly basis. If you spend less in any period, put the excess cash right into an investment account.
Be creative and plan some inexpensive leisure activities, like biking and hiking and spending time in parks.
Avoid overnight accommodation if you can manage a day trip
Bring your own food and beverages on summer excursions.
Put your credit cards on holiday and use cash instead.
Are you willing to make a bigger commitment? Then consider opening up a regular investment plan. We can help you arrange to have regular transfers made from your checking account to an investment account set up for the goals that mean most to you over the long run.
