To be honest, setting a goal for how much money you want to save sounds a bit daunting. But like any other goal, if you set small ones for yourself, it’s more doable and easier to achieve. Although I managed to save close to $30,000 within the last year, I originally set out to save only $15,000 by the end of the year. I started off by putting a little over $1,000 each month into my savings because that didn’t sound that too intimidating to me.
As I got into the habit of that, if I had a month where I made some extra money, I contributed even more to my savings. Before I knew it, my original money goal doubled by me consistently contributing to my savings.
