Jane Furnival says; "Whether you are saving for your children's future through a Child Trust Fund (CTF) or looking to be more savvy on the weekly shop - the most important thing is that you have a goal of what you are trying to achieve and an idea of how you are going to achieve it - so you can make it happen.
