Expert tips for managing and saving money for the future:

  1. Start a side hustle – While making money on TikTok and other social media platforms is fun and different, ensure you have some other form of consistent income until your earnings on social media are stable and can support your lifestyle. After all your expenses have been covered, any leftover money you make from either ventures can be set aside for future savings.
  2. Create a passive income stream – Earnings that aren’t fixed to an hourly wage of salary is known as passive income. Social media work is a great source whereby content creation can continue to earn money in the background. This could be in the form of affiliate links. 
  3. Contribute to a pension pot – Whether you want to invest and save your earnings from your main income stream or side hustles, now is always the best time to start thinking about the future and your pensions. If you are not eligible for a workplace pension, then a private pension can be arranged. Make sure you do your own research and/or speak to a professional to help you maximise your savings in the safest way possible. 
  4. Open up a savings account – Shop around for the best savings account for your personal circumstance. For example, a regular savings account could yield a higher interest rate, but you may not be able to access your money for 12 months, so always read the terms and conditions and only add what you can afford.
  5. Download an expense tracker app – Tracking money has never been easier. With a number of apps to choose from, from budgeting to an automated expense report, look around for one that best suits you. If in doubt, an old-school spreadsheet always works.
  6. Saving for a rainy day – Install a money savings app which automatically rounds up your expenditures and adds the remainder to a savings pot. If you buy a coffee every working day for €3.75, then your total expense will amount to €4.00 with 25 cents going towards your personal savings – that’s a future saving of €5 a month and €60 a year.
