1. Start now – Most people leave it too late to start a regular savings plan so jump in and start one today. Try and put a little extra away each month in a high interest savings account.

2. Add to your super – Having an extra 10 to 15 per cent of your wage put directly into your super can make a massive difference to your retirement savings – it’s also tax-effective.

3. Repay your mortgage – The faster you repay your home loan the more cash flow you’ll have to save or invest.
