A saving strategy that motivates you is one that feels honestly achievable, rewards you occasionally, and offers monthly targets that break down the entire year's financial resolutions into short, simple steps.
Check exactly how much you need to achieve your aim. If you're saving for a new car, make sure you're including all the unavoidable extra costs like insurance. If it's for a holiday, include things like spending money, car hire and travel insurance. This provides focus, makes targets achievable which motivates you for the next challenge.
Don't be overambitious. Setting a savings goal that makes a real impact on your finances will be more effective than multiple resolutions. All that matters is the result, so focus on that realistic goal.
You can even use the 'Savings Goal' feature on Nationwide's Banking App. You input how much you want to save and by when and it'll suggest how much you need to save daily, weekly or monthly.
