Don't eat out, don't go out for drinks, stop shopping. Aim to save at least 40% of your salary. Contribute the max to your 401k automatically, then for the rest of the year invest every other paycheck. You can get loans for cars and houses and college educations but you can't get loans for retirement.

It doesn't matter, that's just what I use. Use whatever you want but set up auto deposit into savings. And do not spend the savings money, cap one requires you to wait a few days before you can withdraw money and that helps a lot with impulse buys. I have a massive drunk shopping problem so it's done well for me

Betterment. Set up an automatic deposit. You'll end up saving more money than you realize. You won't be able to change your spending habits. But you will be able to save in the process.
