    Hey,
    I want to start saving money for living etc before I join University. I have about 4 years to save up but I can't get a job. Is there any good way I can save up £2000+ a year well before college?
    Thanks!

    I've moved this to our Money and finance forum where it will hopefully get a response.

    Well the obvious way to save money is to get a job. So if you can't get a job then you've got problems. Of course there are other ways to save and make money but they aren't reliable unless you treat them as a business.

    So ultimately you need to get a job. Otherwise you need to start being more inventive with ways to make money. If you can't get a job how else can you earn money? Can you sell something? Do you have amarketable skill? Etc.

    Saving £2000 in 4 years should be easy, most people with even a part time job could do that in a year. So in that respect I'd aim much higher. Why £2000, why such a small amount for 4 years work?

    Why 'can't' you get a job for these 4 years?
