But it doesn't have to be. There are plenty of ways to drop extra money into your bank account that don't require that much effort or thought on your part. Here are a number of them. You probably are already doing a few (good for you!), but it's always a good reminder to keep you on task!</p> <h3>1. Automate</h3> <p>Automating your bank account so part of your paycheck immediately gets dumped into your savings is an easy way to save without really thinking about it. This way, you'll have to live within your means.</p> <h3>2. Lay Off the Credit Cards</h3> <p>Swiping credit cards may cause you to spend more than you like. If you're not responsible with your money, try to opt to live credit-card-free. Yes, you may be losing out on reward points or cash back, but if you're going into debt because you're not thinking about your purchases, perhaps you need to lay off charging things to credit.</p> <h3>3. Read More</h3> <p>Do you know what <a href="http://www.savvysugar.com/Warren-Buffett-Success-Tips-34015340">Warren Buffett does</a> with most of his time? Read. OK, maybe you won't become a billionaire, but reading personal finance books or <a href="http://www.savvysugar.com/Books-Change-My-Life-21195577">self-improvement books</a> can put you on track to having a healthier relationship with money. Saving money will become second nature to you, which will make it easier to save.</p> <h3>4. Go to the Library</h3> <p>Reading more doesn't mean spending more cash on books. Start thinking of your local library as your friend and explore all the freebies they have to offer &mdash; it's not just books. You can borrow free DVDs, use their Internet for free, <a href="http://www.savvysugar.com/Free-Services-From-Library-25766579">and more</a>.</p> <h3>5. Make Your Own Coffee</h3> <p>Invest in a coffee machine or a french press to easily make coffee instead of going to your local Starbucks on your way to work. Instant coffee is a good idea as well if you don't mind the flavor.</p> <h3>6. Make ExercisePart of Your Lifestyle</h3> <p><a href="http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2012-05/nu-lct052412.php" target="_blank">Studies have shown</a> that picking up one healthy habit can lead to positive benefits in other parts of your life.

Hang Out With Frugal Friends</h3> <p>Your friends can be a huge influence on you, so choose wisely who you spend the most time with.

While you're at it, perhaps throw a <a href="http://www.savvysugar.com/How-Host-Clothing-Swap-21486470">clothing swap party</a>!</p> <h3>26. Shop at the Outlets or Factory Stores</h3> <p>I have a friend whose motto is to never buy things at full price &mdash; that can be yours, too. Wait for sales, which usually come during national holidays, and shop at outlet and factory stores.</p> <h3>27. Get a Water-Flow Regulator for Your Shower</h3> <p>Install a water-flow regulator in your showerhead to save money and the environment.

Unsubscribe to Daily Deals</h3> <p>Kick your daily deal habit to the curb and buy the ones you really need. Not only are the everyday prompts clogging up your inbox, but you may also be tempted to buy things you don't need. Unsubcribe from their mailing lists, and shop for the daily deals when you need them. Search the site&nbsp;<a href="http://yipit.com/" target="_blank">Yipit</a>, which aggregates all the daily deals out there to find the deals you actually need.</p> <h3>34. Make a Big Batch of Food Whenever You Cook</h3> <p>Maybe you're not into cooking every day, but if you cook once in a while, be sure to make a huge batch of food so you can keep on eating the leftovers. Freeze whatever you have leftover or pack it for lunch.</p> <h3>35. Get Friends to Pet Sit or House Sit</h3> <p>Pet and house sitters can be quite pricey, so try to get a pal to do it for you instead.

Automatically Increase Your 401(k) Contribution Each Year</h3> <p>Opt to have your 401k contributions increase automatically so you don't even have to think about it. You may have to request the autoincrease but there are many plans that already have you enrolled.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-blog-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A penny saved is a penny earned.

More than 75% report <a href="http://money.cnn.com/2013/06/24/pf/emergency-savings/">living paycheck to paycheck</a>.

But don't despair. We can learn from the behaviors of good savers to improve our own money situations. Follow their lead, and you, too, can end up with a ton of money in the bank. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/16-easy-ways-to-save-100-this-month?ref=seealso">16 Easy Ways to Save $100 This Month</a>)</p> <h2>1. Live as Simply as Possible</h2> <p>&quot;Living simply&quot; means something different to everyone. But, for many of us, it conjures images of deprivation &mdash; of letting go of things that we love. The truth is, though, that you can keep many of the things you love, by living more simply (and cheaply) in other areas of your life.</p> <p>For instance, you may love gourmet food, but not care so much about clothes. You could choose to buy your clothes at a thrift or consignment store, while spending a bit more on food. Still, that doesn't give you license to <em>overspend</em> on food &mdash; and you still need to cut back on shopping or other areas for this method to work.</p> <p>People who save a lot of money do just this: They cut back on the things that aren't important to them, and save that money instead. You might be surprised at how much you spend on things that just don't really matter to you.</p> <h2>2. Remember That Every Little Bit Adds Up</h2> <p>If you only have a few dollars a week to save, it can feel easier to buy a few lattes than to put that money away. However (assuming an 8% return), saving only $15 a week for 20 years will get you $62,183. If you can put away $30, you'll end up with $124,365.</p> <p>Is that enough to retire on? No, but it's also nothing to sneeze at. Imagine giving your child or grandchild that money on their 25th birthday, or using it to buy a new home.</p> <p>People who have a ton of savings have realized that every little bit helps. They might sell things on eBay, do mystery shopping on the side, open bank accounts that offer free money as incentives, or any number of other things. They don't talk themselves out of saving this money, because they've looked at how it multiplies.</p> <h2>3. Grab Free Money</h2> <p>Most employers offer some sort of matching on their retirement accounts, and many also offer things like stock options or other investment incentives. Essentially, this is free money that they are giving you simply because you work for them.</p> <p>The hard part for some people is that most employers require you to contribute a certain percentage of your salary to these investments before you qualify for the match. If you're already feeling like you don't have enough money, it can be hard to talk yourself into seeing less in each paycheck.</p> <p>People with a ton of money saved have almost always taken advantage of these offers, though. They know that free money doesn't come around every day, and they take a long view regarding their own funds. They would rather have more money later than get their hands on that cash now, even if they have to live more simply at present in order to achieve that.</p> <h2>4. Plan How to Spend and Save</h2> <p>If the word &quot;budget&quot; makes you want to run and hide, you are not alone. We tend to think that budgets are restricting and that they'll ruin our fun. Instead, try to think of your budget as a tool for freedom. If you keep to it, you will know exactly how much you can spend and still achieve your long-term savings goals.</p> <p>People who save a ton know where their money is going. They know what their bills and other financial obligations are, and they ensure they can meet those and still put a little away for the future. They also live without financial fear, because they know that they have enough for everything that's important to them.</p> <h2>5. Understand How the Brain Perceives Time</h2> <p>Saving money requires you to be able to overcome the desire to spend money intended for savings on other things. To do that, you have to understand how your brain works. Not only do you need to understand how advertising influences you, but it helps to understand that, sometimes, when a goal is far off, your brain lies to you by making you believe that what happens today is more important.</p> <p>Most people with high levels of savings listen to their reason and look at the numbers before they make financial decisions. They know that the way they perceive things can be flawed, and so they constantly return to logic and data. Some even know that, when working toward a long-term goal, the longer you work, the further away the goal seems.</p> <p>Get to know the intricacies of your own brain. If, for instance, you grew up in poverty, you may be particularly sensitive to any sense of want or lacking and tend to spend more when you feel deprived.
