Not sure where to start when it comes to saving money? We’ll let you in on a secret: It’s easier than you think.

Here’s what the experts at United Texas Credit Union recommend to help you get that new house or dream vacation:

Every little bit counts

Even if you only save $10 a week, after two years you’ll have more than $1,000. In time, you may find you can afford more (think: up it to $25 a week for nearly $3,000).

Set it and forget it

A savings account with direct deposit means you can save without thinking about it. Think of it like automatic bill pay, only this time you’re paying yourself.

Consider a side hustle

Extra spending money? Nah — a side hustle is a great way to build your savings.

Tighten your belt

What can you do without? Decide which luxuries you can give up even temporarily, and re-route that money to your savings account.

Make money moves.
