2. Automate, automate, automate
You’ve got your big goal set, right? It’s now time to figure out how you can help yourself achieve it. It can be really easy to give into temptation and spend more than you should. To ensure you don’t do that, automate your savings. According to Daily Worth, you should set up recurring transfers on a regular basis from your checking account to both your savings and investment accounts. You could also consider setting up auto deductions from your paycheck to your employer sponsored retirement plan. The sooner you can get your money out of your checking account and into other accounts, the more likely you are to not spend it.
