The turn of the calendar is a chance to reevaluate your life goals, and that includes your finances and what you’re trying to save for in 2020. As we enter the new year, it’s time to look ahead to our financial future and figure out what we want to accomplish, and how much we have to save to get there.


I got married in June, so the past few months my wife and I have been navigating our finances, determining what we want to keep separate and what we want to combine, and figuring out a way to make a joint budget. One of the things we know for sure is that we need to create a savings plan, as we’ve decided that, sooner or later, we need to put down some stakes and consider buying a house. But beyond those long-term savings goals, we’ve got short-term goals too. For instance, there’s a certain theme park designed around a certain sci-fi franchise in a certain part of the galaxy called Orlando that we’ve been dying to visit, and setting aside a bit for that trip each month is the only way we’ll make it happen.

Dobot is the app that helps people reach savings goals just like these. Powered by its “Smart Savings” function, users can visualize their various savings goals, and painlessly calculate and set aside small amounts of money every few days from their main account (based on your savings goals and what’s available in that account). Safe and secure, there are never any transaction fees, and even the app itself is completely free, without any monthly fees. It even protects against overdrafting with its calculated withdrawal amounts.

Now I want to know, what are you saving up for in the new year? Are you saving up for something huge like a downpayment on a new home? Or is there a special trip, new piece of tech, or big-ticket concert you’re saving up for? Let us know in the comments below, and to start your new year saving for the future, check out the Dobot app today.
