The annual savings values given are conservative estimates and are based on an unmarried single person. Of course, you can save significantly more or less. Of course, some of the values are strongly income-dependent (such as health insurance, church tax). This means a high earner will absolutely save more than someone with a lower income if these suggestions are heeded. Relatively speaking, however, both save about the same amount.

Even if you don’t implement all of the above savings tips, you can save significantly more than $1000 a year with relatively little effort.


The next vacation is thus secured in any case.

That should be motivation enough to start saving, right?
