I get paid once a month, so I pay all bills at that time. I was able to pay off my vehicle early as well. Each month, I have "my car payment" automatically sent to a money market account. I had it set up as automatic payment when I owed the money which allows me to save it without seeing it.
I have a rule for saving money and that is I save all my five dollar bills. If a cashier gives me my change back and it is a five dollar bill, I will save it in my jar. It takes some time but it works and you easily add to your saving! Think of the times when you were given a five dollar bill add those lets say and you could have saved over hundreds of dollars! Try it you won't lose anything but will save a bunch!
Keep your money in save spot! I use a jar and when it gets really full I don't cash it in. I rubber band the money and put it in a save box!(somewhere REALLY save) Seeing the money in you account will give you a chance to spent it! out of mind out of site.
