1. I’m a huge fan of paying yourself first. I’ve had $50 coming out of my account every two weeks for like 8 years now and that small amount has accumulated nicely.

    I take a larger amount that I put away as well.

    It’s like getting a pay cut. You won’t die. You just have to adapt.

    • Agreed! Glad to get someone else attest to this working! You really do learn to adapt and it’s a great way to curb your spending so that you can reach your long term goals :)

  2. Paying yourself first is key. If you can set up an automated deposit from your checking to your savings at the start of each month it helps even more. The less you have to consciously deal with setting aside the money, the less likely you are to spend it.
