how do you save money?

December 2, 2007 3:00am CST
because most of us can not earn much money or enough money,so it is necessary for us to save a part of our money.for me,I usually deposit some money that I will not spend in case of emergency and I just spend the rest of what is your way of saving money?

You have to pay yourself first. Before you pay your bills set aside a set amount each month to put into savings. I always buy on sale. I shop at thrift stores, use coupons. If I can do something myself I will do it instead of paying someone. This year I started to only pay with paper money then the change I got I will put it in a jar. It adds up. The most important thing I do to save money is not spend money, especially on unnecessary stuff.

It is really difficult but one has to save money.Mostly you should invest in something for future & try to limit the expenditure specially on things which can be termed as luxorious expenditure.Try to control the habit of wasteful shopping if you have.Avoid frequenting too many Mall because we end up spending for things which we don't require.

I save money by buying things that are on sale and clipping coupons. I also save pennies, because they are the only money that I will not spend.

Saving is must for everyone. You can invest a part of your earnings in Fixed Deposits, Mutual Funds, Shares and Gold. For good returns shares trading is very beneficial. You can earn as high as 30% in shares trading.

My savings are in shares.As banks do not pay much interest atleast as of now the share market is doing well.We just invested in a flat so most of the money goes into paying off the loan.Anyway I look at that as an investment.
