It's great to do all your banking in one place, especially if you bank online.

But when the money you saved is just a few keystrokes away, even determined savers can give in to the temptation to make a quick transfer to cover a bill, or withdraw savings from the ATM "just this once."

So make it a challenge to access that money.

Deposit savings in a different institution from your everyday accounts.

Shred the ATM card so you have to bank in person.

Pick one that's far away from your home or work, with inconvenient hours.

Choose a bank that charges big fees for withdrawals or a brokerage that makes you wait 48 hours for a transfer.
