Have you Developed a Habit of Saving?

I like that you called this a habit. Because that is exactly what it has to be. You have to make saving a habit and a priority. A few years ago I would have told you that not everyone is capable of saving. Some people are living paycheck to paycheck and don't have enough to pay bills much less save money. However I am in a worse position now than I used to be and I have learned that saving has to be a part of what I do each month. I think it is important to put even a small amount away each week or month, or at every paycheck/whatever you get. Even if you are only taking $5 at each check and putting it into savings, you will find that eventually that does add up and is very handy on a rainy day. (even when sometimes every day seems rainy.) Anyone can do this. Even if you think you can't. It's become a priority in our lives and I have made it a habit as well. (one of the better habits I've developed lol)
