Help with budgeting and spending control

Many people struggle to manage their money each month, and may find it easier to budget with the help of a money-management app.

Squirrel is a Barclays-held account that splits your salary up into your bills, savings, and a weekly allowance. It is free for the first 3 months and then there is a monthly fee.

How does it work?

  1. Create an account - Tell Squirrel about your monthly expenses like rent, your savings goals like cars, and expensive upcoming events like Christmas or birthdays.
  2. Move your salary - Transfer your income or ask your employer to pay directly into your FCA-regulated Squirrel account. Squirrel will hold back money for savings and bills, and the rest goes straight back into your regular bank account.
  3. Chill about the bills - Your bill money is kept aside and only paid out to your regular bank account the day before they are due. No more overspending!
  4. Get saving - With overspending a thing of the past, you can sit back and watch your savings grow as your goals become realities.
  5. Have fun spending - With a weekly allowance you know you can afford.
