I have the Plum app and do round ups and also a set aside which an algorithm works out how much to put aside each week without affecting my outgoings. I’ve saved more than I thought and haven’t missed the money. Very pleased.

As soon as you get paid put the money you want to save into a saving account. And don't touch it. That money doesn't exist on a day to day basis. I literally forget that it's there. If you see it as and extra spending account that's exactly what it will be. I only ever take something out of it if I 100% have too e.g. cars broken and I don't have the money in my account. But that's exactly what saving is for.

Next year I’m going to do the pound challenge, don’t know the proper name.

You save £1 on Monday, £2 Tuesday, £7 on Sunday. Then you repeat all year long. An easier way to do it is to just save £28 a week.

Automatic transfers into savings accounts - x amount toddles out of my current account and shuts itself away every month so I can't spend it.
