If you pay your bills, you can also save money. You simply make your savings into a bill. You won't miss the money.


For example, you buy a house with a mortgage. A small part of your house payment goes toward the purchase and is "saved" in the real estate. It may not be much, but it is better than nothing.


Another example is to arrange a monthly debit from your checking account into a saving account. Any bank can set up a savings plan for you.


Certain credit card programs allow you to make monthly payments into an investment account, such as savings accounts with insurance companies or banks. The amount you authorize is automatically charged to your credit card each month.
