Of life aren’t in under our control and we have to spend whatever we like it or not but there are also some other aspects which will be under our control.
And these aspects can alone make you or break you. Money is a lucrative object in life. If we have money, more often than not, we tend to spend it. Some of it are good spending which can benefit us now or in future, but there will be also some sectors, spending on which, no good can come out rather you will break the backbone of your finances.
Hence you need to take control of your finances. It’s not an easy job but a few tips can make you help in the long run.
1. Never buy anything out of impulse. When we see something and find it attractive, we tend to think about buying it. But even if you can buy it, think about whether it can benefit you in a great deal or not.
2. Keeping the money to your wallet minimum to a level such that, it doesn’t hamper in the day to day life yet, it prevents you from spending it over the top.
3. Following aspect is obvious — spending less than earning. Even if in one month, there were unexpected costs, you should try to mitigate the difference in the next months.
4. Reviewing the credit card statements and finding out which costs you could have avoided and thus trying to do it in next month.
