It’s easy to think that putting a chunk of your salary away each month classes as smart saving, and you’d be right. It’s smart to try and keep some money aside. But there’s more you can do to keep saving smarter.

Tips on splitting your savings

Kevin Mountford, Co-Founder of Raisin UK has provided some top tips on splitting your savings.


The first thing should be to figure out how you save best. Not everyone has the capability to deposit a chunk of their salary into a savings account every pay day, which is where techniques such as micro-saving are great.

There’s plenty of savings challenges available, such as the 365 day challenge of the 1p challenge. If you start each Sunday saving £, incrementing every day until you get to Saturday where you save £7, then you can end up with £1,500 in 12 months!

Using a combination of savings platforms

Having a savings account is great, especially what that lets you top-up and withdraw at your convenience, but it’s always worth looking at other options. Having an easy access account is great to get a tidy sum together, but dependent on what you’re saving for, it could work great with another savings account!

Moving your money

If you decide to invest for something more long-term, a fixed rate bonds account may be the best option. If you top up your easy access and decide you want to lock that sum away for a specific reason, whether it’s a house deposit, a wedding or just so you don’t touch it - moving it to a fixed rate account where the rate won’t change is a sensible option.They also usually offer more competitive interest rates, which means ultimately more return on your money!
