How I Saved $13,000 in 2 Months On An Entry Level Salary

+ Side Hustles

I've been trying to save money for a while, but I wasn't getting anywhere. Then one day, after consulting my bank account and doing some math, I realized that if I wanted to save $5,000 in 1 month - which was my goal at the time- - then I needed to change how I was saving money. It wasn't long before that realization hit me like a freight train: This can be done! To help you understand where I'm coming from when it comes to saving for the future (and why), let's take a look back at how we got here.

I didn't need to save the amount of money mentioned initially.

I didn't need to save the amount of money that is listed in my title.

I was able to save money by changing my lifestyle, not just by saving more money.

I saved money by making changes to my budget and my spending habits.

I have been trying to save money for a while, but I wasn't getting very far.

You need to be willing to change your habits.

You need to be prepared to work hard and put in the time, even if it means waking up early on a Saturday or Sundays so that you can get ahead on your savings goals.

You should also change the way you do things if they don't work anymore—but don't worry! There are plenty of ways out there that will help make saving money easier than ever before: apps like Acorns allow users like myself who want their finances ready at all times.

I knew that I needed to get organized if I was going to start seeing results.

It was time to get organized. I knew that if I wanted to start seeing results, then it would be hard for me to do so without being organized.I made a plan, set goals and put them in place as soon as possible.

The first step was writing down everything that needed to get done on a daily basis (and then breaking it down into smaller pieces). Once each day had been accounted for, there were only two things left:

1) prioritizing those tasks based on their importance and 2) sticking with the plan until everything was completed!

It sounds easy but trust me - this part isn't easy at all because there are going to be times when you're just not feeling motivated enough or don't want anything else getting done besides your workout routine or favorite show on Netflix (or both!). If this happens - don't panic! Just take some deep breaths and remind yourself how much better life will feel once these projects have been completed successfully instead of failing miserably like many people tend do when trying something new but not doing well enough yet.

You can begin saving money right away, even if you don’t have much money or it’s hard to save at first.

The best thing about this plan is that it doesn't require perfection in order for you to start saving more money. If a month or two goes by and your budget isn't quite where you want it yet, then just keep going! It's all about building momentum and getting used to being on the right track financially so that when the time comes where things are looking better than they were before, there won't be any hesitation making changes in your spending habits again.

And although some people may think this sounds like an impossible feat (after all, how could we ever get ourselves into such dire straits?), let me assure everyone out there reading this post right now, we've done these types of things before—and they didn't seem nearly as tough as they did when we were doing them!

Saving money can be a lot of hard work, but if you are willing to put in the effort and make a few changes in your life, it’s possible. You can save significant amounts of money if you put your mind to it, are willing to change the way you do things, and are prepared to work hard!

Now that you've read through this post, and hopefully discovered how easy it can be to save your own money, it's time for action! So what are you waiting for? Get started on saving today so that tomorrow will be better than yesterday.
