Saving money is a habit. It’s a habit that doesn’t take much to start, but the benefit becomes many-fold. I started saving money when I first got married. I wasn’t making much money then and only could afford starting with $10 a week commitment. Ten dollars a week doesn’t add up quickly; but what did add up was building that habit of saving money.
Over the weeks and months of only saving that measly ten dollars, the habit became ingrained in me. So much that every debt I paid off and every pay raise that I got led to me increasing my savings, rather than using that extra money to shift-up my lifestyle paradigm. And that is where you really start seeing gains.
Make a commitment to start saving now, no matter the amount or your age. The amount you start with may seem insignificant, but by getting in the habit of saving now you are laying the foundation for a more prosperous future. As you become better at managing your money, the amount that you save will multiply. But it can’t multiply if you don’t start to begin with. What do you get when you multiply a number with zero? Answer is zero! Ten dollars a week is all it took for me to start saving money and build a more financially free future.
