3, Keep a Savings Log
Something that's often recommended for those sorting out their finances is to keep a spending log-to write down what you spend, so that you have a clear picture of where all the money is going. I've done this in the past, and it's always revealing (and occasionally a bit horrifying!)
A twist on this, though, is to keep a savings log. Each time you make a deposit into your savings account (or each time you shove a few dollars into the jam jar hidden under your bed), write down the date and how much you saved. This can be a great way to motivate yourself to save more. You could also use your calendar or diary for this.
