One of the easiest ways to save is to do it without even noticing. This is a trick that my mom taught me years ago, and I've been doing it ever since. If you are already using the direct deposit option at your job, simply set up a direct deposit for your savings account. If you don't have a savings account, you'll need to tackle that first. I recommend setting up an account at a bank separate from where you hold your checking account so that you have less visibility, temptations, etc. Again, I will put the warning out there about minimum balance and minimum deposit requirements fees. Make sure that all of the rules are made crystal clear to you before you open the account.
Once you have your account all set up, put your direct deposit request in to the payroll department and they should be able to add a secondary account for you. You can either choose to have a percentage or dollar amount deposited directly into your savings account each pay period. Trust me, I know they can do it because I process payroll myself and it's pretty simple. If you're able, you can deposit the 5% that we talked about in the 80/20 Rule of Financial Freedom, or start off small with $10 per paycheck. Ten dollars may not sound like a lot, but you will save a minimum of $240-$260 per year that you probably would have spent otherwise. But right now, it's not the amount that matters. We're focusing on changing behaviors and developing low-maintenance, money building tools.
Your mind might try to trick you into thinking that you're going to lose $10 per paycheck. But don't worry, you're not losing anything; you're simply redirecting and taking control of your money. Not to mention, you'll see it again on your monthly savings account statements! So start off small just to prove to yourself that you can do it. Once you start, you'll be able to watch your savings multiply month after month without having to manually do anything... except keep your job of course :-).
Change requires action!
