5 reasons people don’t save money
With the high cost of living in South Africa at the moment, saving money for a rainy day is little more than a dream to a lot of people, but it need not be.
In this article we offer insights into saving money, the importance of a high interest savings account, the best savings account to have and how to formulate a savings plan for your future.
But before we get into the nitty-gritties of saving, let’s look at the top 5 reasons people say they are not saving money today:
Bearing the above in mind, if you get to the point of starting to save some of your hard-earned money you want it to be worth your while.
Things like high interest savings accounts and tax-free investment accounts make saving money worthwhile.
It is, however, important to do your homework when shopping for the best savings plan and best savings account.
Consider a Notice Deposit account, which includes the option of a 7 day notice account, from African Bank. A notice deposit account earns you interest from day one and you can choose the notice period – seven, 32 or 90 days.
To grow your money even faster, you can set up a debit order or make your own regular deposits, from as little as R100. And, when you want to withdraw your money, you just give us a call.
It only takes a small deposit to grow your investment. Obviously, the longer you leave your money in a savings plan, the bigger your reward.
The good news is you do not need a fortune to start saving or making smart investments.
