Saving should be a core part of money management, helping you to build an emergency fund as well as a valuable nest egg for life's big events. But just where should you stash your cash?
Forget the mattress – we've highlighted the top 5 places to put your hard-earned money to really make the most of it.
As you can see, there are plenty of places you can stash your cash depending on your savings goals, and you could soon watch the interest stack up. One final word, however: if you've got a credit card or overdraft you absolutely want to put your spare cash towards paying those off first, as the interest you'd earn from a savings account will be nothing compared to what you're spending on credit. But, as long as you've got that sorted, make sure to consider all the options and you can find a great home for your money.
