I can’t afford to save!

Everyone can save a little bit. It is always worth trying to save even small amounts of money. They add up over time and it’s a good habit to get into – unless you have debts.

It’s better to pay off debts before saving because the cost of debt is higher than the benefit you get from your savings.
