This year, I am seriously considering keeping a portion of my earnings for my personal savings. It is funny, however, that once such a decision is made, you will also find out that saving can be a very challenging thing to do. There are bills after all to pay, and there are also things we would like to buy. There are ways, however, to keep at your decision to save and to stick to it.
One way to stick to your decision to save is to always get a portion of your earnings upon receiving it. Do not expect that the extra cash after you pay off your bills and other expenses can be your savings. Set it apart first, not last. Another way to save is to take note of bargain sales and using coupon codes. The money you saved from availing of these can then be set aside and deposited to your savings account.
