Think you don’t have enough money to start saving? Even little deposits add up to big bucks. Take these examples:
1. Enroll in a 401(k). If your employer offers a 50-cent match for every dollar you contribute, even adding $60 a month will net you over a grand a year.
2. Raise your car insurance deductible. Upping your out-of-pocket outlay from $250 to $1,000 can save you 15% or more off your premium.
3. Get a credit card with rewards. Spending $80 a week on gas and groceries? Putting it on a card with 5% cash rebates will earn you nearly $200 a year.
4. Brown bag it. Instead of spending $8 on takeout every day at work, bring a bagged lunch for $5. You’ll save $60 a month and $720 a year.
5. Park your car. Why pay $25 a week in gas when you could pay half that to use public transit?
