It’s a week till the next month starts, but you’re already out of money. You have not only spent all of your money, but you have also spent what you had set aside as savings. This is true for about every third person, believe it or not. People frequently bow to their desires and spend more than they earn, resulting in negative savings growth. You not only save zero money for the future but are now taking from the savings you have been successful in storing.
Saving money isn’t as hard as it seems. It’s all about creating a financial plan and sticking to it rather than spending randomly and letting fate take its chance. However, the majority of people are aware of this! They are well aware that they should not be spending so much money, but they do. For the most part, this is due to the fact that no one is taught about money. This causes people to fall into debt or have no savings. Savings, on the other hand, are not only useful in an emergency; they are also excellent for additional investment and later wealth generation. So without any further ado let’s have a look at some of the best tips for saving money.
1. Record Your Expense-
Before you end up creating a monthly plan, it is important to know how much you spend in an entire month. Therefore start with keeping a track of your spending. Collect all the bills and note down your regular expenses such as groceries, monthly outings with friends, electricity, etc. After that make a list of it all and categorize each expenditure accordingly.
2. Make a Budget-
Now that you have an idea of how much you spend in a month, the next step is to measure it as your income and then come up with a budget. Ideally, your budget should have a separate account for savings which should add up to 10 or 15% of your total income. This budget will help you keep a track of your spending and will alarm you if you are about to go beyond your limit. It is a great way to keep your money in check.
3. Plan Ahead-
Now we all live in a materialistic world and the consumer culture has made us prone to buying things every month. So that’s why it is safe to plan ahead especially if you are looking to buy something out-of-the-ordinary such as a TV set, new laptop, mobile phone, bike, calculate your savings, and then schedule these things ahead of time so you know exactly when you need to buy it. This will help you in spending and saving appropriately
4. Need vs Want-
While making a budget for yourself, keep an account of your needs and wants. Needs account for those things without which it is hard to go on with your life. It includes bills such as electricity, water, household salary, etc., and items such as groceries, essentials, etc. Now wants to include the things you crave such as expensive food and unnecessary tech. Prioritize your expenditure.
5. Reduce your spending-
Look for ways to reduce your spending and increase your savings. If you believe that commuting to the office is less expensive than a car, then do so. If you can manage without eating at high-priced restaurants, go for it. If you’re spending too much time with your friends partying, figure out what your social needs are and spend accordingly. Do not go beyond your monthly expenses and then struggle to get through the month.
