    The secret is to put money ---even if only a few dollars ---toward debt and into savings as soon as you receive it. It forces you to live on a little less during each pay period.

Keep a running list of all your debt and another for your savings. Update it at the end of each month. It is motivating to see the debt decrease and the savings increase. It might take years, but eventually the debt will be zero while your savings account grows. And once the debt is gone, you'll have even more money to save.
