Setting financial goals, doing a budget and saving for those goals go hand in hand. Your budget shows you how much you can save and your financial goals form the basis of your savings plan.

Set Financial Goals

Think about your goals and what you want to achieve financially over a period of time, be that short term, medium-term or long-term goals. Whatever your circumstances, by working out your financial goals and starting a regular savings plan, you can begin to make your dreams become a reality.

Setting goals is just like having a destination and a budget is the road map to get there. This Budgeting and Goal Setting video provides some easy to follow tips and tricks to help get you started or back on track with setting your financial goals.

Keep track of your goals

Saving is easier than you may think. The trick is to start small and start now. Set your goals, create your savings plan and transfer savings to a separate account.
