How to use our Dreams Come True Calculator
You can use the calculator to establish a savings strategy to reach your savings goal. Enter the following details into the calculator:
Price tag on your dreams
How much will my dream cost me? What is the price tag on your dream item? Try to work out a specific amount, weather it is a few hundred dollars for a new phone, a few thousand dollars for a new TV or holiday, or hundreds of thousands of dollars for a house deposit.
How much do I already have? Have you already started saving toward your goal? Or do you have existing savings you can dedicate towards it? Don’t worry if you are starting at 0 – you’re starting today!
How much can I save every month? Planning the amount you will save is a delicate balance. The more you can save, the quicker you will reach your goal. But try to be realistic about how much you can spare to avoid a budget blow-out. Our Budget Calculator is a useful tool.
Put your money to work. If you will be saving for a period of time, it is a good idea to put your savings into a separate savings account. That way your money will earn interest and generate even more money while you wait.
