The Science of Saving

Building your savings may not be easy, especially on a tight budget. But it isn’t an out-of-this-world concept either. Professor Pig has researched the science of building good saving habits. Keep reading to learn how you can try the experiment for yourself!

Visualize Your Future

Most behaviors are hard-wired in our brains, like genetics or an old habit. But scientists are forward-looking people. Become the visionary of your financial future!

When looking ahead, consider a wide range of subjects, including eliminating debt, saving for a new home or car, or an advanced degree. Don’t forget smaller goals like vacations and electronic upgrades.

If you can visualize where you want to be in five, ten, or twenty years, you’ll be more likely to put yourself on the path to get there and avoid impulse purchases that don’t support your savings goals.

Adjust Your Calculations

Reward apps are the modern equivalent of collecting spare change in a bowl by your front door.

There are various options available, but the general idea is that you rack up reward dollars by shopping using the app or browser extension.

When you receive the cashback payment, send it directly to your SmartyPig account. You’ll be surprised how much these little bits add up and significantly impact your savings goals!

Grow Your Savings

Picture your individual savings accounts like little Petri dishes. You need to feed them with recurring, automatic deposits to see them grow.
