JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) FIRST National Bank (FNB) has discouraged the public from overspending this Valentine’s Day.

Ester Ochse, Product Specialist at FNB Wealth and Investments, said the fundamentals of savings should be applied to any special and celebratory occasions.

“Whether you spend on a special birthday, wedding anniversary or Valentine’s Day ensure that you plan accordingly and start saving early,” she said.

The executive said occasions like Valentine’s Day gave the public an opportunity to be innovative and creative around gifting options.

She recommended opening a tax-free savings or investment account.

“That money invested now will help you save for your future and help kick-start your investment and savings journey.”

Ochse said budgeting for Valentine’s Day should be done on a yearly basis.

“If it is something that you celebrate faithfully, try to include this in your budget.”
