I average £11 a year, sometimes £12 if I'm extremely lucky. My propensity to save is non-existent and will forever reside in relative poverty.

Final year of 6th form, so I suppose you could argue I have no real incentives to save. I am totally dependent on my parents money. Next year however, I don't know how I will cope. 'YOLO' or so they say.

I save approx 250=400 a month. Varies a lot, but depends on my bills for the month. The leftover goes straight into my savings account. I work nearly full-time though and study part-time.

long term savings, nothing. I do manage short term savings for example saving up for Christmas, or a trip, or something like that. But nothing long term.

I save for the kids though. £10 each child per month. It's not much but better than nothing.

I "save" about £3k each year, but only about £1k of each year is left in my account 21 months later.
I work over the summer to save up for Uni the following year, and usually manage to get a bit left over, which I may well need next year as I don't think I can work this summer

I saved around £4500 last year, but then spent that and more on my car (it is a lovely red Fiat 500, no finance and insurance paid outright).

I'm starting from scratch again this month but should be around £500 saved I think.

I overspent this semester so no savings and i don't yet have a job. Each semester though i can save a minimum of £500 from my student loans so by Summer 2015 (end of university) i hope to leave with a minimum of £2500 in savings and just a £500 overdraft. In addition i fully intend to find a job and bar summer 2014 (i'd need to cover my living costs) almost everything i earn should be for savings and so feasibly by summer 2015 i should from employment have at least another £2500, potentially much more.

You're all doing pretty great. It's a good trend.
