esbs website poll results – What’s your approach to saving?

Everyone has their preferred ways of allocating their money, and last month we wanted to know how people prioritised saving.
The vast majority of you follow the “pay yourself first” mind-set with almost 80% setting aside a fixed amount at the start of the month. On the other end of the scale 14% don’t save at all. None of the respondents save sporadically, while 7% are more flexible with their spending and putting away what’s left at the end of the month.
