You are probably thinking at this very moment: "I'm having problems paying yesterday's bills - now you want me to save six months' worth of expenses for tomorrow?" Yes, that is exactly what we want you to do. However, and this is a big however, you don't have to do it all at one time. Saving even as little as $10 a month will start the ball rolling and help develop the habit of saving for your future.

Get in the habit of saving some of your income every month.
