Often the best money savings tips aren’t the ones you read in personal finance columns, but the insights discovered by real people. That’s why we recently ran a competition asking Sydney FC fans to share their top tips.

We were inundated with entries which drew inspiration from many aspects of life, from budgeting & goal setting to lifestyle & Sydney FC game day.

Here are our top 14 money saving tips from Sydney FC fans, including our competition winner:

Budgeting and goal setting

  • Savings strategy is like SydneyFC; You need a well balanced team, Attack those expenses, Defend all your savings, And have a smart coach like Arnie!

  • Any pocket money i make i split it three ways. 1/3 for spending, 1/3 for saving and 1/3 for my favourite charity.

  • To always have an ultimate goal in which you want to spend your money. For example, I’m saving for a house.

  • It has to be automatic. Set up a direct debit into a savings account or ask your employer to salary sacrifice into your superannuation fund.

  • Use a savings goal tracker app & excel spreadsheets for a budget to see where your money goes & how much you can really save!

Sydney FC game day

  • Buy a Sydney FC Membership as part of your yearly entertainment budget! All of a sudden you and your family are busy every other weekend.

  • Save money going to the game. Public transport is free with your ticket, take your own food. That’ll save a family $50 at least

  • At football cook hotdogs in hot flask of water take rolls & sauce & fork to remove hotdogs don’t miss any of the game


  • Swear jar … Good little fund my family accumulates over the year and we use that saved money for an end of year holiday

  • Get the kids to move out as quick as possible.

  • Turn off lights, power points & electronics when not in use. It’s amazing how much you can save.

  • Pack lunch from home if you are going to school or work!

  • Only buy what you need. Don’t spend what you don’t have. Don’t use a credit card.

  • Grow your own veggies, swap, borrow and recycle items wherever you can instead of always buying new.
