Top tips to save for a deposit
Q: What are your top three savings tips?
Spreadsheets. My life if a spreadsheet, but they did help.
My biggest tips would be to budget and to do a lot of research. I put so much money into savings. It's like 70% of my income. I think the first $10,000's the hardest.
Talk to your friends, talk to your parents, talk to anyone that has gone through the process. Bringing in someone independent stops you from acting on I guess an emotional urge.
You need a buffer, the expenses that come up.
Never buying clothes at full price. Don't buy your lunch every day. Yeah, always bring your lunch. That's my big one.
