I meant to add this also. I went for quite a few years after I started working without saving anything. I wish I had started the small weekly savings habit at the credit union where I worked.

Once you accumulate a comfortable amount you can consider investing in a LOW-FEE NO-LOAD Index Mutual Fund (that means Vanguard).

I was sad to hear of the passing of Jack Bogle, the one-time CEO of Vanguard who invented the concept of index investing back when everyone else thought it was a joke.
