Alright dude, lets start with your basic needs food and shelter, count that money as gone before you even get it, you should stll have some left, now
account for gas, and needs such as electric bill, phone bill ect ect, now you take the amount you have left and you save whatever out of it you can,
ever small it may be.
Most banks will let you open a savings account with as little as 10$ so what you consider buying with that 10$ think about it and decide if you really
need it...ahem...20$ bottles of liquor.. do this method of accounting for as long as you need to give yourself a comfortable cusion in the bank
whatever you feel is comfortable.
Easy to forget how much we confuse needs with wants and if you are really serious about it then when you have enough money saved up you could always
consult a wealth management company for some investment tips.
Of course some disipline is required here and it will take some sacrifice but with some determination you should be more then capable of this over
time, before you know it your money will become less of a burden and more of a tool for enjoyment in moderation of course.
