Following research by Barclays which has found 48 percent of Brits don’t have a rainy day fund, the bank is piloting a new series of Money Workouts to help people shape up their finances.
And, an unusual money saving challenge could, according to statistics from last year, see savers end up with hundreds in their savings pot by Christmas.
With rain forecasted in the capital this weekend, new research from Barclays has found that more than £200 could be saved by Britons, should they put away a few pounds each time the heavens open in November and December.
Based on average rainfall figures, Glaswegians and Mancunians could save the most with a total of £230 if they put £5 in their piggy bank every time it rains during this time frame.
Meanwhile, in Birmingham, data suggests £210 could be saved using this method.
