And if you do how do you do it? ISA's? Premium Bonds? Regular bank accounts?
I got out of my overdraft about 2 years ago and it felt good.
they're all shit at present though since interests rates were reduced to almost nothing.
I'm not really getting much for my money with my ISA so I have started buying Premium Bonds. Looking at the chances of getting a return on them they don't actually look that good. I think maybe it isn't a wise move.
Lucky for you lot it was really boring.
But what if I won a million pounds?
And there is that million...
(holiday / nice treat / etc.)
But sometimes I don't spend everything I earn, so that's nice.
I got my Student Loan statement yesterday on another note. I reckon 2 more years and it's paid off. That'll be nice...
Really wonderful. I wanted a confirmation letter or a nice certificate to hang on the wall but my DD just stopped coming out, that was it.
Or rather I should say £200 worth of CD's and Wii games better off...
If so, then yes. I like to tell myself this counts as saving.
Regular savings account, because I sometimes need to dip into it for flat deposits, holidays and stuff.
in which i will save money to pay for a trip to Japan and Australia.
I have about 20p sofar.
i'll update this year. to be honest i'm earning a reasonable amount more than i spend at the moment so i could probably do more than just letting it sit in my current account doing fuckall
I still bounce funds from my savings to current quite a lot.
Its the first time since I've started in a big boys job that I have been able to keep significant savings (then I bought a car, 3 festivals and intercontinental flights - bah)
