Make sure you understand your finances
Are you starting with nothing? Do you already have some savings? It’s a good idea to dedicate some time to go through all your accounts, and understand how much or whether or not you’re in any debt. If you’re saving with a partner, sit down together and assess both of your accounts so you know where you’re both starting from.
Be sure to check all your accounts, including current account, credit cards and savings accounts. You may have accounts you’ve forgotten about or inactive accounts, so make sure you cancel those.
Once you’ve got to grips with your finances, it’ll make it easier to plan your savings.
