Three top saving tips for the week

Each week, we’ll bring you three quick saving tips that, together, will hopefully make a difference to your wallet! Try these…

  1. Keep a transparent (so you can see your money growing) container in the kitchen and put all your R5 pieces in it. You’ll be amazed by how much you can accumulate in a year.
  2. Obtain a detailed bank statement and examine it carefully. There may be deductions you didn’t know about, for example membership to a gym you stopped going to years ago.
  3. Increase your monthly payments on your house bond by R500. This might hurt a bit but it will significantly reduce the interest you have to pay.
