How much should you save a month?

Expert opinion suggests saving between 20% of your salary each month and having a lump sum equivalent to at least three months’ pay, but how much you can actually put into a savings account each month will depend on your earnings and outgoings. There are money management apps now available that can connect to your bank account and track what you are spending. They then identify opportunities where you might be able to save money. Some bank accounts now allow you to round up your spending to the nearest pound and place your money directly into your savings account – in effect trying to save it before you spend it.

The 1p saving challenge - how does it work?

This became an online trend at the beginning of 2020 to prompt saving for Christmas. You save 1p on day one, then on day two, you save 2p, and each day you increase the amount saved by 1p. When you reach 100, you then move into pounds and pence, so on day 101 you save £1.01. Over a year of 365 days, you could save £667.95.
