ING has added a new feature to their mobile banking app for Android and iOS. It’s called “Small Sacrifices” and gives users the ability to visually see how much they can save when they forego “everyday indulgences.” ING states “instead of spending your money on donuts and coffee, what not bank it instead.” Easier said than done. The premise is to save your money and whenever you get the urge to spend, ING wants you to think about where you could be in 5-25 years if you didn’t indulge. Once you log into your account you can select a “small sacrifice” to focus on, then they’ll give you some inspiration by showing you a pretty bar chart of where you could be. The app add-on is free.
