Save money and spend less with Widilo

Everyone wants 2020 to be great. We all want to go on holiday, make memories and have fun. Some of us are also looking to save money, or perhaps find it hard to do so. Let Widilo help you save money and spend less this year by reading some of our top tips below!

First up, the spare change challenge

Perhaps the easiest of them all is the spare change challenge. Whilst the world is going card crazy, some of us will most definitely still have annoying spare change clogging up our pockets that we will always end up spending on something. Resist the urge and put it away! Grab your money box, jar or piggy bank and watch it grow. You're not allowed to take money out until the end of the year, with the only exception being an emergency. Of course you can tailor make it your needs. You can put any value in the jar that you see fit. Whether it's coins, notes, or both. In the end you can save quite a bit of money from your spare change.

Set your sights on the 365 day money challenge

Don't let this year long challenge scare you, think of the massive amount of savings you can accumulate at the end! Start light by chipping in with 1p for the first day, 2p on the second, and so on and so forth till the very last day where you put in £3.65. It's so simple and easy to do, if you buy a jacket from ASOS when you shop online through Widilo for £29.99 then just round it up to £30 by adding that 1p into your savings account. If you stick with it for the full 365 days, you can save just under £670! Perfect to treat yourself a well deserved break.

The 52 week money saving challenge

Taking it up a notch for those who really want to save. This popular challenge focuses on you increasing the amount of money you save each week. It may not be exclusive for everyone but it's a great way of saving money fast. The amount corresponds with the week, so you save £1 in week 1, £2 in the week 2, £3 in week 3, and so on. On the 52nd week of the year, you save £52. If you stick to it you will have saved £1,378 by the end of the year. You could use this amount to save towards something like an all inclusive holiday in the Bahamas, a shopping spree at some of your favourite brands or perhaps towards that new laptop you've always wanted.

The reverse 52 week saving tip

Although the 52-week saving challenge is popular it may not be for everyone. This is because the level of saving increases throughout the year. This means it involves someone attempting to save aside £200 during December - which is tough with all of the festivities, travelling and usual bills on top. So to combat this, the reverse 52 week saving challenge was created. This ensures that you start off saving big in the beginning, £52 in the first week, £51 in the second, to then saving as little as £1 on the very last 52nd week. The amount of money you save decreases every week, so you start off saving big, which makes it easier for you during winter.

Save £1,040 with the £20 challenge

Super easy to do and achieve, the £20 challenge can save you just over £1040 within a year. No coins needed, all you have to do is pick a day when you want to put £20 into your savings account. We suggest at the beginning of the week on a Monday so you know that it's been transferred and there are no distractions in place to divert that money elsewhere. Then by either the summer or at the end of the year you can really party hard and treat yourself to something you can enjoy knowing that you saved up for it with the £20 challenge.
