Self control.

Only buy essentials.

I don't know I just don't spend much money, this last year I have spent about 100$ a month on food because of all of the restaurants being closed,

Rule of three is what I use and helps so much. For anyone that don't know is If you have enough to Buy it, Have enough to Lose it and Have enough to buy it 3 times.

And double question yourself about what you buy. Think so I need it? Can I get an alternative? How much money do I have left?

Hope this helps man but it's down to self control

every week put away a set allowance, as I get paid weekly so I try to put away just over more than half of my pay into a savings account, if one month is more 'spendy' than the other then just dip into savings slightly and try make up for it the following payday.

I'm pretty shit at saving money but when I do I usually take the money out of my account and put it in a shoebox under my bed. For me it's out of sight and out of mind cause when I load the app and see my balance it's not gonna be in there like if I had a savings and looked at that and thought "Eh why not dip into it a little".

Self control is key, only buy the essentials.

Save enough for 6 months of your bills just in case anything happens and then invest the rest into retirement
or real estate.

Self control. Im not the best with money myself but I always have it setup so X percent of my paycheck goes into my checkings and the rest goes into my savings account. Only buy what you need, try not to make impulse buys, look for coupons before buying something online or in person. I also have a app called Charlie which tracks spending between all my debt and credit cards too.
