Dream big. Live better. Save well.
Putting a price on your dreams doesn’t kill them – it simply makes it easier to work out how you’re going to achieve them.
Everybody has dreams. Whether it’s getting on the housing ladder, travelling overseas, getting a nose job or setting up your very own food truck…. you’ve got dreams, goals and things you want to do. If you’ve got savings, you can make your plans a reality.
Turning dreams into reality
If you have a big expensive goal and need to take out a bank loan to reach it, having savings will help you out. Being able to point to savings shows you can manage your money like a proper grown-up and means the bank is more likely to say yes. And you might get better interest rates too.
Turning plans into reality can be pricey. Putting an actual cost on the size of your dream makes it more tangible – which could bring your dreams crashing down. However, knowing the size of the goal you want to achieve will make it easier to do so – it becomes less about ‘one day I’ll do it’ and more ‘I’m doing something about it now’.
An eternity of cheese toasties?
Saving may not be easy but it’s easier than you might think. Saving money doesn’t mean surviving on cheese toasties for years and never going out. Saving doesn’t mean getting rid of Netflix and never having a holiday.
Saving doesn't have to equal sacrifice.
The sooner you make a start, the easier it’ll be. Imagine how much better you’ll feel in 3 months’ time when you’ve managed to save money for your trip to Thailand or that new handbag you’ve had your eye on? Start now, and your future self will thank you for it.
Saving for something you want means you really appreciate it when you get it. You reach your goals and then you can move on to bigger and better things.
