Creating or making a habit or in short being consistent is a hard thing to do but considering all the benefits of it is life changing. Everyone of us has our own personal habits that allows us to feel better each day. One of the hardest thing to do is to save money regularly so I admire all those who had great success when it comes to savings. I tried it many times to start saving money but turns out to do it inconsistently so I need to adapt some techniques to make it easier.
Here are some of the steps to develop money savings habit:
Pay Yourself First
Consider your savings like a monthly bill, by this savings becomes a necessity. It can be the 10% of your monthly salary so you can save substantial amount through years. "Pay yourself first" is consider as the golden rule of personal finance.
Always Think of Saving
When you still have few bucks at the end of the month the best way to do is save it. Do not buy or spend it to things that are not really needed. I know a lot are guilty of spending even the last cent on their pocket specially there are a lot of tempting things to buy. Practice the art of control.
As long as you're earning more it is most likely that you're capable of saving more. It's not like your income increase your needs also increases like buying more clothes and gadgets just to show to people you're earning bigger.Think wisely and don't buy things just to impress others.
Track all Expenses
Some of us don't have any idea where our hard earned money goes. Well, to help you determine where it really goes try recording all the expenses you incurred every month. When you go outside record all your expenses like eating in the restaurant, going to the coffee shop and other small or big expenses. It is now very easy to do this as everyone owns a smartphone where you can enter every expenses to a personal finance tool.
