How to save money easily




Whether you want to save up your cash for something special, pay down your debt, or have money available in case of emergency, it's always a good idea to have some extra put aside for when you need it.

But it's not easy moving away from living pay check to pay check and building up your savings - for most of us it seems like there's always another need to provide for, another bill to pay, or simply not enough money coming in to cover all of our expenses.

The best advice I've ever received when it comes to making your budget work is to know the difference between a NEED and a WANT.

Your 4 basic NEEDS in life are food, shelter, utilities and transport - everything else is a bonus.

I know, that doesn't sound realistic in an age of smartphones, packaged foods and Netflix - but you'll be surprised at how much you can do without when you really need (or want) to save some cash.

Once you settle on your needs based budget (it's different for everyone - start with the basic 4 and build from there, staying under what you bring in with your income every week or fortnight), it's time to make sure your money actually gets put aside, so you can't spend it before you get a chance to save it.

Personally, I like everything in my life to be as simple as possible. So today I'm sharing my favourite 3 techniques to save money.. on autopilot.

You set it up, and then it basically takes care of itself.
