The best advice I could give is to save money like it's a bill you need to pay. Budget out how much you could afford to put away each week, month or however it works for you and when that time comes pay your savings account that amount each time. Whether it be weekly or monthly treat it like it NEEDS to happen that way and sort of try to trick yourself into thinking of it like its "paid" and no longer exists. Once you start thinking of the money as gone it's much easier to not spend it. And if you do need to spend your savings treat it like you are taking out a loan from yourself and pay yourself back like you would a bank or a credit card company. Once you start doing business with yourself your finances will start growing!
