Watch: How to save money on a low income
Saving money can be challenging at the best of times, but when you are on a low income it can make it that much harder.
It is important to be organised and to set goals when trying to save money, and paying attention to your spending can be a great way to start.
Having savings means having a safety net if something at home needs replacing or fixing urgently, and it can also help you get onto the property ladder.
Building up those savings, however, can be challenging when it feel like affording day-to-day essentials is tough enough.
