Selena this is so simple, as to be silly. But as far as I can tell it is the only thing I really have done that is different most other people.

Wel all "know" we are supposed to save, but we don't. So the simple idea is this. Everytime you get a pay raise or increase, take 50% of the increase in take home and save that amount. You still get some additional spending money, but slowly the savings increase.
