It’s always easier if you know what is your destination. When you start saving money without knowing where you’re going to spend it or without any deadline you probably won’t feel very motivated. With me, my trip to London was my main goal, for example. You just need to find something that you want to achieve really badly which will make everything look easier.
Watch your spends!
Without even noticing, we spend a lot of money without any need. If you’re trying to save more money, it’s good to analyse your spends and see what is not necessary. Do I really need to go out for dinner or can I eat at home? Should I really buy another white shirt? Depending on the amount of money you’re trying to get, you might need to cut more or less. I went on a whole year without going out for meals or buying new clothes, it was not as hard as it seems and in the end it’s all worth it.
Make some extra money!
This depends on your personal lifestyle but there are always some things you can do to earn some extra money. That can be things such as selling your old clothes, making food for sell or do some kind of service, you can also get a part-time job. You can always find something that fits in your life and that helps you getting more money.
Start a piggy bank!
Choose a cool piggy bank that you like and, most important, that cannot be easily open. Whenever you have some coins in your wallet put them there and when you finally open it you’ll have a lot more than you think.
