What is a good amount to save each month?

At least 20% of your income should go towards savings. Meanwhile, another 50% (maximum) should go towards necessities, while 30% goes towards discretionary items. This is called the 50/30/20 rule of thumb, and it's popular quick-and-easy advice.

Also know, how much can you save in a year?

Getting to 20 percent—an example. Let's say you make $1,200 every two weeks. After taxes, it's $1,000. Your savings goal should be 20 percent of net (after-tax) income, or $200 from every paycheck.
