Always work on your savings, even before you decide to buy fun things. Don’t make the mistake of investing in cars, rims, and video game consoles. None of these things hold value, they will all decrease over time.
It’s hard to not get caught up into the trap of spending money on random things. Living in a world where people believe status is what you have, remember that’s an illusion. Just because you have something doesn’t mean you can afford it.
Save every time that you get a check, even if it’s only $20. The best rule truly is to save 10% of what you have. It doesn’t seem like a lot but over time it will grow.
