How do you fund your savings?

Doesn’t that too take money from the monthly budget? I would think that it would just be a mental shift – you’re still saving the money, just putting it in a different pot, which is most likely virtual anyway. I DIDN’T do “sinking funds” per se. I did savings, I allotted a certain percentage into savings, and included in that amount was money necessary to buy my Car’s yearly registration, money for my next car purchase, money for yearly property taxes and my rainy day fund.
