The problem with most of the people is that they do not budget or save their money. They don’t have any idea on how to manage money better. In fact, most people live on their paycheques.
Whatever money they earn goes directly to paying off their monthly expenses. Therefore, there is no positive cash flow that they can then use and put aside.
Look, either you control money, or it controls you. To control money, you must manage it”.
It’s high-time you master your money so that you can move forward with your life goals and experience financial freedom!
Below are the few pro tips that will help you out on How To Manage Money Better!!
#1. Keep a budget
A budget is not necessarily a way to prevent you from spending past a certain limit. It can be used that way, but that’s not it’s the best use.
A budget should be a spending plan. Defining how much, or what percent, of your after-tax income, you expect to spend on certain things.
Say, you might expect to spend 17% for auto and related expenses. Knowing that would be helpful if you were considering buying a car that would run that expense up to the 19% level. Or if your actual expenses were above the 17% level you’d have to decide whether to adjust your plan or try to cut down the expense in the future.
#2. Make habit of saving a little
Saving a little with every month or paycheck has many advantages.
You’ll develop the habit of saving. You’ll be accumulating savings in both good and bad markets (taking advantage of dollar cost averaging). You’ll have compound interest working on your behalf. You’ll have money saved to handle unexpected big expenses.
#3. Make your money make more money
Want to know how the rich keep getting richer?
It’s because money can grow while you sleep, provided you save some of it. Properly invested money earns more money over time.
Don’t just sock all your cash away in a low-interest savings account. Invest the little money you saved in things that will earn you more money than you had before.
And this is how you make money work while you sleep!!
#4. Follow The 50/30/20 Rule
People use the 50/30/20 budgeting rule to make sure they are allocating their money well.
Here is what this rule stands for- Fifty percent of net income is for fixed expenses, such as mortgage, car payments and utilities; 20 percent is for your savings goals, including short- or long-term goals such as an emergency fund, vacation, investment, retirement; and 30 percent is for variable expenses or the ‘fun stuff’ — shopping, gifts, clothes, etc.
#5. Last but not the least, Sell Your Crap
Most of us have too much junk that we don’t need, don’t use, and just takes up space. If you never, or rarely ever use it, then sell it to someone that can use it.
Those things don’t add any value to your life and don’t bring you any financial advantage. All they do is take up space and drag you down. So get rid of the junk and pass it along to someone that can enjoy it & get yourself some easy cash.
