interest

'saving?' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both acts as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe you can see an association between them that I don't see?

'something to take the boredom' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'something' could be 'er' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'er' is found within the answer.
'the' could be 't' (the is pronounced as a 't' sound in some dialects) and 't' is present in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'out of' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for interest that I've seen before include "Attract - curiosity" , "may be simple" , "Sum of money paid on top of borrowed amount" , "something that is enjoyable" , "Money earned by money in deposit account" .)
