  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 258. The title of today's lesson is the

  • difference between save up and save on. Okay this is one we're again students of

  • ESL might make a mistake that might mix up the two. The common mistake usually is

  • to use save up when you're supposed to be using save on. But anyway, let's first look at the meaning.

  • To save up means to gradually put aside money or small amounts of a supply of

  • something for future use. So you definitely save up money or you could

  • save up the supply of something that you need for something in the future as

  • well. All right. To save on something means to save money when buying something. So

  • you were able to get something for either a cheaper price or you were

  • somehow or someway able to spend less money for something similar or almost the

  • same thing. So you saved on it Okay. So again, let's look at the first example.

  • here with the X. This one's wrong. To save up the budget the company will no longer

  • provide a free trip for their employees. Of course this is wrong, to say save up

  • here. You should be saying to save on the budget the company will no longer

  • provide a free trip for their employees. Yeah. So they're they're saving on the

  • money that they have to spend for their budget. So they're saving on , not saving

  • up. All right . Let's take a look. Let's continue here. To save on the cost of diapers,

  • we've started to buy in bulk. Now we order them by the case. So this is,

  • this is correct. This is a way that we commonly use to save on. So it's another

  • example you're actually saving money. You're buying in bulk. So each diaper

  • ends up costing less per diaper. So you're saving on the cost of diapers. You're

  • in bulk. Remember in bulk means buying in large quantities. Okay. Here's another

  • mistake, with the X where it's wrong. To save up the cost of my clothes I tried

  • to wait for clearance sales. So again. This is what you should use. With a check

  • here. To save on the cost of my clothes I try to wait for clearance sales. Okay good.

  • And then we'll just give you one example of where we would normally use to save up. We have

  • been saving up money to go on an overseas trip. Okay good. I hope it's

  • clear I hope you got it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
