Last month we celebrated the concept of Saving. And it seems you did too: in February, gohenry customers squirrelled away a massive £838k.
We’re set on continuing the Saving mission in March and beyond, so we’ve tried to find some easy, practical ways that will help you get your kids started.
1) Set a Goal
Giving kids a realistic time frame and a tangible thing to work towards will help them enjoy the journey and stay motivated throughout.
2) Incentivise it
Keep the momentum (and the spirits) high. Offer to match a percentage of what they save on a weekly or monthly basis and kids will learn to look forward to checking how much they’re accumulating.
3) Celebrate it
Hitting a saving goal is a big achievement: make sure you make an equally big deal about it!
4) Make it a habit
Keep talking! Have a chat about the other things they’d love to buy, but can’t afford just yet. More importantly, set a time to do it. Whether it’s over breakfast or in the car from football, marrying a new habit to an existing one will make you more likely to find time, and stick to it.
Eat. Sleep. Save. Repeat.
