What was the first toy or item you ever saved for?

I remember trying really hard to save up for one of those disposable underwater cameras. My sister and I used to swim all the time, both in the pool and in the ocean pretending we were mermaids and I really wanted to take pictures. I think eventually I got one as a birthday present!
 

What did you do to earn pocket money when you were a kid?

When I was in primary school I actually used to teach gymnastics to the younger kids to earn some pocket money. Such a random thing for me to do because now days I can hardly do a cartwheel! But I guess at that age I enjoyed being able to teach and most of all tell people what to do.

What's your best spending or saving tip?

The best thing I've learnt when trying to save money is to encourage your friends or people around you to save their money too. I tend to spend too much money when I'm hanging out with my friends and buying things I don't need. If everyone is on the same page about saving you can all decide to do something that's still fun but that's not going to cost you much or anything at all.

 

 

What was the first toy or item you ever saved for?

The very first thing I saved up for was a Polly Pocket set – it was a village of Polly Pocket houses. I wanted it for ages and my parents said if I could save up half the money, they would reward me by paying for the other half.

 

What did you do to earn pocket money when you were a kid?

I used to love washing my parents' cars for pocket money... although because I was so small my dad would have to help me by cleaning the roof of the car, since I couldn't reach. That was my main chore – along with making my bed and helping my mum with the vacuuming.

What's your best spending or saving tip?

After spending so much time doing my chores for my pocket money I was always careful with spending it. A tip I would give is only spend your pocket money on something you've been wanting for ages, instead of buying something silly then wishing you hadn't.
