“I've always recognised the value of money, but understanding how to use it and make it work for you is the real tea.”

Hilary's key tips for saving are fairly straightforward: cut out any unnecessary spending, use credit cards for cash-back and create a budget that works for your needs.

The savvy businesswoman put aside £2 000 (about N998,000) per month – representing two-thirds of her salary – for almost two years, Metro reported.

Out of her outgoings, 24 percent went to general expenses.

“Two-thousand pounds was a good part of my monthly income at the time, but during the pandemic where nothing was really open and I was working from home and living with family rent-free, with little to no financial responsibility, it wasn't too hard,” Hilary said.
