How hard is it to save $10,000 in a year?

Saving $10k in a year seems like a daunting task, to me anyway, but the benefits are many. For one, I'd finally have a healthy emergency fund plus I wouldn't have to worry about going into credit card debt for my next vacation or home renovation project.

I think breaking it down to how much I'd need to save weekly or monthly makes hitting that $10k goal much more digestible. Anyone have tips on making setting aside a little money each month an out of sight, out of mind task? For example, my partner has a small amount of her paycheck automatically deposited in a separate savings account each pay period.
