How to make it work?
1. Budget your daily allowance by identifying the amount you'll have to save
and the total amount you'll allot for daily expenses.
( Amounts are just examples)
2. Put your savings in your wallet and the amount for expenses in the coin purse.
This is to assure that your savings will not be used or in some way, you will not be tempted to use it.
3. Have your own bank account on your trusted bank near your school. Preferably an ATM or debit card (not a credit card please). In a weekly basis, deposit your total savings of the week. This will help you avoid further temptations on spending your cash on hand.
(The day of the week will be up to you. You can do it on a Saturday or so, anytime that you find more convenient.)
I am not claiming that this is a perfect way that you should follow but it does work for me. Saving money requires discipline and dedication. If you are aiming for something, you need to do it in a way you are more comfortable and with focus. :)
That's all for now!
