The best time to start saving is Now. The sooner you start saving, the better the chances are your plan value will have the sufficient amount you will need in the future. We generally have fewer expenses at the earlier stage of our life, however as we grow older we accumulate more responsibilities and accordingly expenses tend to rise, so it would be easier for us to meet those increased expenses if we start saving as early as possible. In addition, starting to save early in life creates a positive habit of saving first then spending whatever remains of disposable income.
