   Editor’s note: Teens & 20s writer Sydney Horton will explore issues    affecting twenty-somethings in this column, Adulting 101.

Have you ever wanted to save money but didn’t know how?
In these three steps you’ll see just how easy saving can be, regardless of income.
Start by setting aside $5 from every check you earn. — If you have direct deposit and a savings account you can set up an auto draft of $5 from each check. By starting small, you’ll slowly build up your savings over time thus making larger savings commitments easier.
Each year, increase your savings by five. If you can set a aside $5 daily by this time next year, you’ll have saved $1,825. Even if you don’t have a formal savings account, set aside $5 in cash in a safe place where you won’t be tempted to use it.
