Could you save a fiver a week for your kids?

As my (electronic) bank manager will tell you, saving has never been one of my strong points. But when you have children you do have to think about the future. The Child Trust Fund helps with that, of course. And someone told me the other day that if you could save just an extra £5 a week for a child, that works out as £260 by the end of the year – and within 10 years that would be £2600, which, let's face it, would come in very handy when they started university, and a fiver isn't much, is it?

So, what would you give up to save £5 a week for your child? Let me know!
