The typical person brings home a paycheck, pays bills, and spends what is left. Very little is put toward savings or investments. Why? Well, many think that saving money is hard. But it doesn't have to be. let's take a look at five great tips to help you start saving money:
1. Never see it, never miss it: One of the best ways to save money is to have it deducted directly from your paycheck. If you don't ever see it, you won't be as tempted to spend it. So, talk to your work about having money deducted from your paycheck for a tax-assisted savings plan (like a 401(k)). If you are not interested in this, or want a little more usability with your money, consider having your bank automatically transfer a specific amount from your check deposit each month into a savings account. Start at $50 and in a few months double it, you won't even notice the difference.
