How to save when you live paycheck to paycheck:

Put aside same amount weekly, in 6 months time you'll have a nice savings
-Keep the change with CC to create your own savings, effortlessly
-Empty your change wallet into a "piggy bank"
-Look into something you buy frequently and how you can save on this item
