All work and no play is boring. Make growing your deposit fun by rewarding yourself when you hit key milestones. Keep the rewards simple and budget-friendly to stay on track with your ultimate goal.
Don’t all the heavy lifting yourself
Don’t just save hard. Save smart. Actively look for savings accounts offering the top rates. Sure, it can mean switching your money between accounts from time to time, but for the sake of filling out a 100 point identification form you could supersize the rate your money earns. It means the banks are doing their fair share of heavy lifting to grow your deposit.
Take a midway breather
There will come a point when you’ve built up a reasonable kitty of funds. At this stage it can be tempting to dip into the cash for other purposes - but try and resist the urge. Instead, take a breather and take stock of what you have achieved so far.
