Become a money-saving guru

Rounding it up

  • The first step to becoming a stellar saver is acknowledging it’s ok to feel behind.

  • Second, you need to start setting aside money regularly. Saving money is something you need to incorporate into your daily life like brushing your teeth.

  • Prioritize setting up a slush fund, then start contributing to medium and long-term saving goals.

  • Don’t forget, there are some great tools out there to help you achieve your savings goals, like automatic payments and Tax Free Savings Accounts (TSFAs).
