- Cut The Large Spending
Believe it or not, this is one of the most common mistakes we seem to do each time we go shopping. Because of various factors, such as hunger or the wish to have everything in our house, we tend to buy more than we actually need. In order to make a change that would be truly worth it, bear in mind that your large spending does nothing good – instead, it cuts off a lot of your financial resources that could be better used in many other parts, such as putting them aside to be saved up.
- Split the Money
Since the most important objective in here is to save money, we need to focus on our goal and keep it in our mind for the good. Because of it, the next step would be to split the money into various categories, such as: bills, utilities, rent, food, leisure and so on, so forth. Still, the most important one in here is definitely the saving up jar, in which you need to place your monthly revenue, in such a way that this will make you feel happy with the outcome as soon as you achieve your goal. Trust me, as soon as you do it each month, this starts to become a habit and your objective will never feel impossible, ever again!
- Stop The Daily Pricy Habits
One time, I heard one of my friends telling me that he is not able to save not even a dollar per month, even though his income was larger than most of the people around his age. When we discussed it over and he explained to me his spending, I understood why this objective was impossible for him. One of the mistakes he kept on doing was the fact that each morning, he stopped at a local bakery and took his coffee from there, together with a croissant, and the total price would have been somewhere around $15 per day. If we make a quick calculation, we are able to see that per month, he spent $450 only on this habit of taking his breakfast from the local bakery. If only he would have decided to drink the coffee from the work or to make it himself at home, he would have been able to save up those money in a matter of time. Departing with this idea into our minds, it is imperative that you identify and thus, spot any habit that takes a lot of your financial resources from you.
- Open a Saving Account
Did it ever cross your mind to open up a saving account? Believe it or not, this is one of the best ways to make sure that you are able to stick to your innitial plan, no matter what. In addition, one of their best features regards the fact that you can, actually, plan it in advance, so that you can actually set up each month to get a certain amount from your credit card (or debit card) and put them into the savings account. By this way, you aan make sure that you will always keep those money aside from your view. To put it shortly, it is imperative that you make those money simply impossible tobe used, so that it will not be at all tempting to you to get them and use them, especially when you are in need. Basically, a good idea in such a situation would be to borrow money from someone, so that you will not break your habit and thus, close you possibility of saving up money.
- Save Up a Certian Sum of Money Per Day
Another great way to help you save money especially when it seems to be impossible is through saving up a certain sum of money per day. For instance, you could tell yourself to put aside as much as $5 per day, which means that per month you will have $150 in your savings.
