Having your own savings account now will not only make you more money-aware and help create good saving habits as you get older, but you will also be able to treat yourself if you have your eye on a new bike or the latest games console or get your friends and family gifts at birthdays and Christmas.
Always remember that saving should be fun, so if you have something you really want to buy, get saving, spend your hard earned money then get saving again!
