I always put 1/2 of each raise into automatic savings. Since you still get a bigger paycheck, you don't miss the money and when I got out, the savings covered the down-payment on my house. Granted, it was a small house.

Thats a good plan- I am leaning that way once I get some bills paid. I had to have my driveway redone this year. That was 4K at 13%. Ouch! I need to get that bastard paid off.
