Placing cash into such as or in important for households on a wide range of different income scales in the wake of the global economic downturn.

That is the view of Dave Rodgers, managing director of the Debt Advice Foundation, who has said that putting money aside as early as possible can help to tackle both planned and unforeseen family costs.

"It's always a good idea to save money whilst you can as it helps to minimise the impact of any future expenditure," he advised.

For example, Mr Rodgers noted that while it is impossible to say for certain how universities will be funded in the coming years as the country continues to adapt to the government's austerity measures, parents could consider the possibility of saving for their children's educational future.

"It's probably sensible to assume that cost may well become a barrier to entry," he added.

Mr Rodgers' comments came after the publication of LV='s annual Cost of a Child report last month (February 24th 2011), which indicated that the cost of raising a child had increased by around 50 per cent in the last eight years.

The study showed that parents and family now have to spend an average of more than 210,000 when bringing up their child up until their 21st birthday, which is the equivalent of 10,040 annually or 27.50 every day.

Despite these rising costs, the Debt Advice Foundation official noted that planning in advance by building up sufficient savings over a significant period of time can "allow parents to help their children in the future".

MeanwhileArticle Submission, Jasmine Birtles of moneymagpie.com said recently that increasing inflation in the UK could affect those with savings accounts.
