    The first sentence is passive voice.
    The second sentence is active voice.

    No, we are talking about tense not active/passive. Try again.

    The first sentence means i will have a try and It is a period to save money, right?
    And this sentence is continuous tense

    2) I should try to save money.
    The second sentence is present tense.
    I am not sure the meaning of this sentence.

    Actually, these two sentences have same meaning, right?

    Thank you for your attention.
    And Sorry for late reply.
