Saving up my carers allowance?

I earn a very small amount of money a month. I earn about, £520 a month from my part time job. I get £64.60 a week carers, should I have any issues in saving this money up?

I have very little spending as I care for my dad and live with him. So we eat at home. I don't eat out much, on a diet too.

I just want to save up my income and my carers allowance that I get.

Are we allowed to save up carers allowance? Because I heard you have to spend the money, I don't want to get in to any trouble. I'm saving up to buy a car, or start a small business eventually.
