Pay Yourself First
Paying yourself first is the best way to make sure you save money every single month. Pay yourself first essentially means that you set aside money for savings before you spend on anything else. You can do this by having money taken out of your paycheck and transferring it directly to your 401K and other savings accounts. This way, saving is automatic and you never have to make a choice about what to do with your money. You’ll forget that the money going to savings is even there, and you won’t even think about spending it.
