Some 72% of people in Northern Ireland do not save because they do not think they can afford to.

The figure is contained in new research published today by Progressive Building Society to mark its second annual NI Savings Week.

This year's campaign is aimed at creating further awareness of the impact that saving can have with various tools available online to show how costs can be reduced, whether that be in food, utilities or even clothing.

Progressive has planned a programme of various savings-related hints and tips for the public throughout the week, highlighting the benefits of saving and how to make your money go further.
