Let's be real - whether you're saving up to buy your first house or to kickstart your wedding fund, saving money for the long-term can be intimidating... and is easier said than done

Maybe you're only earning RM2,000 per month but most of your salary goes to utilities and responsibilities, leaving you with peanuts at the end of the month. 

Maybe you're halfway through your money-saving goal, but your ten-year-old car suddenly decided to die a very expensive death, so now you're back to square one. 

Or maybe, just maybe... you simply don't have a lot of self-discipline when it comes to money. :p 

That's not to say it's impossible.

Just ask this guy who made it a habit to take out every RM1 and RM5 note from his wallet and set it aside at the end of every day.

Or this guy who killed two birds with one stone by putting the RM10 he would've spent on a packet on smokes into a sealed tabung

Maybe you went down the digitised route by setting up an automatic transfer of 30% (or more) of your salary into an "untouchable" bank account every month
