1. Live according to your means.
Do not try to live a life that you cannot afford. What you can afford is what you go for. If it is a single room you can then go for it. Do not live life because you see other people’s life, those are not you. Know your place.
2. Associate with people who have a saving culture.
The best thing you can do for yourself is dissociate yourself from spendthrifts who do not care about your future.
You will not be young forever and your parents will not always be there. One day you start supporting yourself.

Learn to put a record of your weekly, monthly spending because it promotes a saving culture and accounts to where your money goes.
5. Do not be stingy.
Don’t be so shy to spend money. If you need something just get it for yourself. It will not cost you. People who are stingy never prosper in life.

Open a saving account where you can put small bits of money when you get them. With time it will grow into something big and you will be surprised.

Most people in campus find themselves in a lot of debt. So every time they get money it goes to paying the debts and none is left for saving.
