According to Rediff reader Mahesh Kaushik, you must do the following things to save money:

  • Use cash whenever you have to buy something. When you spend with cash you tend to buy necessary items and avoid useless things.
  • Start investing in mutual funds through SIPs. Ensure that your SIP date is close to your salary date so that you don't face a cash crunch and can invest more.
  • Prepare a budget for your weekends and spend accordingly.
