Having a small income is no excuse to not being able to save money. No matter how much your income is, you have countless ways to set aside a small chunk of your income for your future. In time, you will realize that every penny you save per day have grown into hundreds or thousands.

If you are trying to save money, you should keep in mind that what goes into your finances should be always higher than what goes out. If your income can’t seem to pay for your expenses or cost of living, you might need to plan on changing your lifestyle or increase your income. Otherwise, it will not only be impossible to save, you may also find yourself getting into serious debts.

Here are some money saving tips that will show you how you can save from your hard-earned income. Make a budget.

Start by listing down all your non-negotiable expenses such as food, insurance fees, gas and utility. Set up a budget for each expense, and what’s left from your income will be the money you can use for your savings and for your negotiable expenses such as entertainment (dining out, movies, etc.)

Your non-negotiable expenses are obviously expenses you need to have budget for and you cannot eliminate it from your list. However, you can trim down your budget for such expenses. For food, for instance, there are various ways to save from such expense without having to sacrifice the quality of your food. You may be able to find local places to buy cheaper food from or save money while stacking large quantities of supplies.

Paying for an insurance is important and non-negotiable, but you can trim the coverage per your needs to save some bucks. Same is the case with your utility.   You can save money as well from your utilities like water and electricity by using them properly. This may seem to yield a small about but when accumulated over time, you’ll be surprised at how much money you can save from it. Don’t make unnecessary debts.

Debts can easily drain your finances so use it with caution. Remember that any debt comes with a fee and that fee, along with penalties if you fail to pay your debt back, would have been a huge savings if you chose to buy things cash.

Start with these steps and you’ll easily free up some money to set aside and put into your savings account.
