Try to give up your expensive bad habits like drinks and parties.  These are enjoyable but also expensive.  If you slowly reduce them in number, after some time, you can stop yourself to go for them. Remember your health is also taken care of, by avoiding these.

Avoid outside food.  Food at hotels, is generally very delicious but also injurious to health, as they add many artificial flavours, colours and some times chemicals.  At home, we can also make ourselves a very toothsome food, with a lot of discounted cost, compared to the hotel.  So why can't you try?  If you are saving health as well as money, why to look at hotel?  Home is the best!

Whenever there is an unexpected income for you in the form of a lottery, lucky-dip or dividend, do not mix up with your regular income.  Keep it separately and try to save it in a fixed deposit, where your family enjoy the benefits of it, whenever exigencies occur.

Be simple.  Do not be lavish.  Simplicity gives you a lot of image in the society but lavish makes you an oddman.  Also simplicity always makes your budget simple and provides you good health!  So happy savings!
