  • Figure out where your money is going dollar-by-dollar, then gauge where you can reign in spending. You can go with the pen-and-paper approach or try apps like Expense or Clarity Money. 

  • Separate and automate your savings. Consider creating a dedicated savings account for your small business -- and de-linking it from other accounts so you're not tempted to dip in. You can also schedule auto-transfers to your savings account for any regular length of time. 

  • Consider where you're storing your stash. Savings accounts at many large financial institutions offer just 0.01 percent interest, while high-interest savings accounts -- often FDIC-insured and available online -- can offer up to 2 percent. DepositAccounts.com has a search tool to compare account interest rates.
