    We started with just putting $10 out of each paycheck into savings.

    Coupons and eliminated the unnecessary things.:

    we get in in cash and put it in an envelope in our safe thats under our bed and then forget about it.

    Bargain shop, use coupons, set money to the side and buy generic brands of certain things

    I auto-transfer $200 per month to a different bank. I use that for birthdays/Chritmas & it really takes the stress off for those things. I treat it like a bill that must be paid.

    I also auto transfer $100/month to household savings. Any $$ left at the end of the month also goes straight to either household savings, kid activity fund (which I use for field trips, etc.) or both.

    Everytime we use our debit card a set amount is sent to savings (bank program).

    Of course we also contribute to retirement & kids' college funds from our paychecks pre-tax.
