If money is tight, you may be wondering how you can save money. It can be a real challenge, of course.

The first step in saving money is to be committed to the goal. You don’t have to save a lot. The important thing is to have a goal and to try to achieve it.

Here are some ideas:

  • Goal: save $100 a month
  • Goal: put $50 a month to the college savings account
  • Goal: save 10 percent of gross income into the 401k

Saving can be hard to do when you have a lot of expenses and a fixed income. If you cannot increase your income, you might want to consider lowering your expenses.

Here are some ideas:

  • Get rid of your landline phone
  • Stop paying for cable or satellite television
  • Find things to do that are free
  • Eliminate big expenses

One big expense is the group of food and groceries. For a family of four or more, this expense can be over a thousand dollars a month. How can you lower this cost?

Here are some suggestions:

  • Shop at a bargain market instead of a big popular place
  • Use a lot of coupons
  • Find items on sale in the stores
  • Consider generic products
