I’ve found that giving my mother $200-$300 a month to save has been helping me. She will eventually give me what I have given her every 6 months, but it allows me to save some extra cash for once I graduate.
I think it’s good to set a goal each week of how much you want to save and keep aside. That can certainly add up. Also, eating out and buying coffee can cost a fortune, so I make sure to cook home often and make my own coffee.
