The earlier you start to save the better, for a number of reasons

First and foremost, it will encourage a great savings habit.

A useful starting point is to plan a budget, identifying all the details of your expenditure each month, so you can work out just how much you can afford to set aside.

This exercise can be very revealing. Not only will it show you how much you are potentially wasting on unnecessary items, it will also indicate the amount you will be able to save on a regular basis. Once that amount is decided, setting up a standing order from your bank account, means that it will become just another bill – but one that will give you money back when you need it.

Starting earlier is also better for your pocket. It's staggering how important the early years of saving are; with the impact of compounded interest, you can build up a substantial savings pot for the future with an early start.

For long term savers, a delay of just 10 years could halve your savings pot.
