Tips from some of our team

Nicky

Above Bar branch, Southampton

“Take time to work out where your money is going. Try making several smaller changes rather than one big one – it may be easier and less noticeable.”

Fabio

Stratford Broadway branch, London

“Be aware that your circumstances are individual to you, and only you truly know what you want to achieve, how hard you need to work, and whether it’s realistic or not.”

Daisy

Colchester branch, Essex

“Using the ‘Spending’ feature of the Barclays app1 will help you see where you’re spending money on a monthly basis. You can then look to make savings where you think you’re spending too much.”

Punita

Coventry High Street branch, West Midlands

“Try emptying your pockets/wallet/purse at the end of the week and putting all the coins and notes in a jar, to see how much you can save. You can do this physically or virtually.”
