Family budgeting can be tricky at the best of times, what with all the costs you have to cover. Then you’ve got family occasions throughout the year such as Back to School, Birthdays and Christmas to cover. To help, we have created a 52 Week Savings Challenge so you can gradually put away some cash to help!
Don’t miss the chance to have your say! We’re looking for parents to get involved and give their feedback on all aspects of family life. Find out more here.
Putting a little aside each week is a good way to save as you can usually budget a bit out of that week.
Our 52 Week Savings Challenge starts off small, builds up in the middle, then tapers off again – we had Christmas in mind if you are starting this in January, but you can start at any time.
As you work your way through the 52 weeks, you’ll really start to feel good about the nest egg you’re building up and setting aside. And it really goes to show how saving just a euro/pound/dollar or two each week can really add up!
