    How can I save money to buy a house
    Hello I am 22 years old and I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years. We are currently trying to think of ways to save money to buy a house.

    It seems it never happens something always gets in the way. I have credit card debt & a new car payment that I am currently trying to pay off and he has some credit cards to pay off as well.

    I was wondering if there is anyway to save a little bit of money at a time that will equal out to a lot of money within a year or two to use to buy a house.

    Any help is great help. Thanks
    :)

    Pay yourself first. That's the only way to save.
    Even if its $20 or so from each paycheck, or 10% of a check or whatever... just pay yourself first, then pay the bills. That's the best way to save. :)

    Well first you do a written budget, and realise that you have to stop using credit cards, only pay cash and if y ou can't afford it, don't buy it.

    Next well the car choice was ours, so that is something you will have to adjust your spending around. But what you do is decide to set at least 10 percent of your paycheck into a savings account put it in the bank before it goes into the checking account and learn to live off that amount.
