The Unexpected Places Where You Can Save

You’re about to go to bed as a notification flashes on your mobile screen. You see it’s a clearance sale, valid only until midnight. It occurs to you that it is probably the 10th invitation to spend to reach you today.

You resist the temptation to buy anything and you wonder if you are perhaps spending money without even realising it. So you open your banking app and look through your monthly debit orders. Within the first three line-items, you identify at least one subscription that you can’t even remember signing up for. You also seem to have been doing a lot of app purchases. You had no idea your money was going towards so many unnecessary expenses. So you decide to take action.

Facing up to your spending habits...

Resisting the onslaught of seductive advertising messages that tempt you into spending (overspending) isn’t enough. You need to dig a little deeper into your finances, almost like auditing yourself to see the unseen places your money is going.

July is National Savings Month and Coronation is encouraging South Africans to think about how they are spending their money, possibly on things that they really don’t need or without even realising they are doing it.

Head of Coronation Personal Investments Pieter Koekemoer says, “There are many hidden ways in which we spend our money unnecessarily.” He highlights memberships, subscriptions, free trials that automatically convert into billings after the first month, convenience shopping because your credit card details are saved online, or upgrading to newer models when you don’t really need to. 

“While it may take some effort to identify and close the tap on some of these running expenses, just take a moment to consider what you could do with that cash if you were to invest it. Allowing it to grow until such time that you can comfortably afford something that you really need. That is the real meaning of saving.”

You’re Not Saving… You’re Spending

July is National Savings Month and Coronation is encouraging South Africans to save more in the true sense... by putting money aside every month instead of spending it. Are we saving in the true sense of the word? Or are we simply spending disguised as saving? Gareth, Phumi and Siya explore how easy it is to fall into the trap of spending money on something we don’t even need out of impulse or for convenience. If you put away any extra money – in the long term, it really can make a lifetime of difference. The real saving is in NOT buying discounted items that you don’t actually need.

Saving? Not Saving…

You’re at work. Your mobile pings that you’ve just been paid. A few minutes later you receive an email from your favourite online store, promoting payday specials. Feeling cash flush, you scroll through the deals. There’s a limited offer to ‘save 25%’ just for today so you have to move fast. You add an item to your basket.
 
You proceed to the checkout. While you hover over the ‘buy now’ button, you remember that your monthly debit orders are scheduled for tomorrow. And it occurs to you that you are about to spend money that could be channelled elsewhere. You empty your cart and get back to work.

Don’t fall for spending disguised as saving.

We are constantly bombarded with advertising messages telling us how we can “save” if we buy something. So it’s easy for us to fall prey to spending money on things we don’t really need out of impulse. When you are lured into buying unnecessary items, the unseen truth is that you are not saving, you are just spending.

July is National Savings Month and Coronation is encouraging South Africans to save more in the true sense, by putting money aside every month instead of spending it.

Head of Coronation Personal Investments Pieter Koekemoer says, “If you find yourself tempted into spending some of your hard-earned money on ‘stuff’ – things that you don’t really need, just take a moment to consider what you could eventually do with that cash if you were to invest it. Allowing it to grow until such time that you can comfortably afford what you truly desire. That is the real meaning of saving.”

Let's Be Honest: Say What You Mean & Do What You Say

This is last in the Coronation #LetsBeHonest conversations that we’ve been having all week - from office talk, to small talk, to sweet little lies, to the things said by both men and women which may mean something completely different. Next time anyone says, “We must meet for coffee sometime” or “No offence but” or “I’ll be there in five minutes” - send us a wink. We'll both know exactly what they really mean. So, let’s just be honest. Say what you mean and do what you say - that is the core of integrity!
