Our Nerang Branch Manager, Rosy King, shares her best tip for getting into the right New Year's savings habit.
Amongst the resolutions we make around this time of the year a common one is to get ourselves into better financial shape by making a concerted effort to save more than what we did last year.
If that's something you'd like to do, the best tip I can give is a simple one - pay yourself first!
Work out how much you'd like to be saving each pay period and when payday arrives, put it straight into a savings account that is separate from your everyday transaction account. The Greater's Bonus Saver account is perfect for this purpose.
Whether you're saving for a holiday, a car, a home, or just to have money set aside for bills, by paying yourself first and then spending last you'll quickly get into a good saving habit and are likely to find that you'll spend less.
