Savings Tips for Young People.
Use apps for Savings
There are many apps that can help our children to start their savings, mostly free, for both Android and IOS. There are even banks that allow you through their applications to reserve a certain amount for each purchase you make, which allows you to somehow also create savings.
Compare before you buy
With purchases just a click away, our young people are even more likely to make impulse purchases, so it’s helpful to advise them to compare before they buy and probably let them learn from their own experience that superfluous shopping takes them a little further away from their long-term buying goals.
Bank Savings Options
The main banks in the country have services for the youngest to start their savings from an early age.

Don’t be afraid to save in a bank
In the ’80s and ’90s, many national financial problems were faced, which led several banks to bankruptcy and with it to the loss of the resources of several savers. After those events, the government acted and implemented several regulations, including that your money is protected by the Bank Savings Protection Law. Just five years ago a bank called Bicentenario declared bankruptcy and thereby put the assets of its customers at risk. Fortunately, the Savings Protection Institute faced this situation and restored customers’ savings.
Saving will always be cheaper than asking
In addition to the great satisfaction of having achieved the purchase they wanted so much, our children will be able to know the great independence that gives them be the ability to buy what they want with the money they have been able to save. Without the need to be asking us to be able to buy what they want. In the future, through the use of their first credit card, they will be able to know that the money financed is more expensive than the money they have managed to save.
