Saving helps you achieve the desired goals and provides confidence

Upon starting your independent life, it can be difficult to save money at first, but if you create a habit of saving, you will feel much more confident in case of any unexpected expenses. This way you can also prepare for bigger purchases or trips.

One way to save money conveniently is to use the Easy Saver. The amount of each card payment is rounded to the nearest full euro and the difference is transferred to your Easy Saver, so the more you pay with your Swedbank card, the more money will be transferred to your Easy Saver account. If you wish so, you can turn it on or off at any time and withdraw the saved money, if necessary.

Save for the future and benefit from your finances

Give your savings a chance to grow and invest regularly for the future. Starting with investments is easier than you think, and it doesn’t always require large sums, you can start even by 1 euro!

How to start saving?

For many people, saving and raising money might be a tough challenge, so we encourage you to read the following recommendations. This will make it easier for you to save money.

There are different ways to save

Set a clear goal

A specific goal motivates you to save a certain amount.

Make a plan

Calculate how much money you need to set aside each month to reach your goal.

Separate savings from the amounts spent daily

By doing so, there is no risk of spending money on spontaneous purchases.

Do not underestimate coins

Start collecting in small steps and save the returned coins separately.

Planning your budget

80/20 rule

Spend only 80% of the money you receive and save the remaining 20%. Use the 80/20 rule when planning your budget. Divide your income into at least two categories:

Expenses – 80% of the budget

Money you spend on a daily basis (e.g. lunch at school, sweets, magazines, etc.).

Savings – 20% of the budget

Money spent on more expensive things (e.g. smartphone, jeans, university tuition, etc.).

Distinguishing between wishes and needs

How do you know which things are the ones you really need and which you just wish to have? Try the following tip.

Divide your purchases into different categories (entertainment, food, etc.).

Usually, a need is something you cannot live without. Wishes, in turn, are everything else that do not fit under your needs.

It is generally said that you should spend about 50% of your income on needs and about 30% on wishes. If your current expenses do not meet this rule, you should review your categories or reduce your spending in both categories. You should be able to set 20% of your income aside.

When managing everyday finances, you must definitely think about security as well.

  • Always keep your card and PIN in a secure place.
  • Be sure to check the transaction amount before entering the PIN.
  • Make sure no one sees your PIN during payment.
  • When paying, always pay attention to the transaction.
  • Always set a screen lock and use it.
  • Use a different password for each website.
  • Use strong passwords that you remember.
  • Do not open emails from strangers.
  • Download apps only from official stores.
  • Do not disclose your personal information online.
  • Do not open suspicious websites.

If you decide to sign a legal document (e.g. a sports club membership agreement):

  • Read the entire document carefully.
  • Make sure you understand everything. If necessary, feel free to ask for more information.
  • After signing the contract, ask for or save a copy.
  • Please note that the provisions of the agreement are binding on you.

Check out the tips and tricks below to help you manage your daily finances more consciously

Try My budget that helps you keep track of your monthly expenses.

My budget allows you:

  • to view all transactions in one place;
  • to get an overview of your expenses by category;
  • to know on what you spend in order to make it easier for you to save.

To ensure that your wishes and the options provided by the bank would match, it is important to ensure that your credit history is positive. This will also be checked if you apply for a loan. You can consciously create a positive credit history yourself by demonstrating a sense of responsibility and reliability as you manage your finances. For example, you always make your credit card or student loan payments on time.

It is also important to know what activities may ruin your positive credit history. Ill-considered decisions and choices show a lack of planning skills and shortcomings in financial education. Read the article from Kukkur on what to avoid to keep your credit history in order.
