Why is it that it's hard for us to save money. We always tell ourselves that we must save up; but at the end of the year we have a broken piggy bank; empty wallets, zero bank accounts and holes in our pockets. Sometimes, we got to learn the hard way when it comes to our finances. Here are some helpful questions and tips that you have to consider.
1. Do you live alone? If you are a single and you're living alone, then it's best that you ditch the big apartment and just rent a simple, big-enough room for yourself. You can save hundreds. Instead of paying big bucks monthly on taxes, mortage and other home bills; you can cut it to almost half or more when you just rent a room for yourself.
If you are parents whose children have flown the coop; get some cash out of these spare rooms. You can get a substantial income from monthly rents per month. Also, the best part about it is that it's it's tax free. Put your spare rooms to work and have it rented out.
2. Do you have a credit card? The best way to defeat the credit card companies eating up your money is to avoid using it; or overpay the interest. If you find yourself having a balance left on your credit card then don't just settle for paying the minimum. Pay off as much as you can each month including the interest. If you overpay, then the balance you have will be lesser. Pay each month and do not let overdue dates get you or else you'd have to pay another sum. Credit cards are great, but they will pose as a potential problems once the credit card companies start going after you to settle your accounts.
3. Do you have a backyard or extra space on your lot? Why not grow your own vegetables? You can cultivate your favorite vegetables, therefore, you can save on cash. If in harvest your veggies bear good produce, then you can sell them. You can save yourself some cash, earn some and you can eat healthier.
4. Have debts to settle? Clear up any financial problems that you have first hand. If you find yourself having debts; you will tend to worry endlessly and be anxious. If you receive your monthly pay, then the first thing you need to do is repay your debts and avoid any interest. You can sleep well knowing you don't own anyone or whatever company money. Also, check on your bills. Whether it be an overdue bill on your utilities, credit card or whatnots- pay them out. If you tend to delay payment, you can get charged with fines; which can turn nasty on your budget. So always pay off your bills first when you budget.
Ask yourself these questions, it's time you life yourself out of your debts and financial loses. Don't get stuck or be sucked down with your debts. Be more wise with spending. Save more, spend less and pay off what needs to be paid. In the end, you're the one whose going to enjoy your money and not anyone else.
