. Make a Budget
The first thing you need to do is have a budget and stick to it. This includes being realistic about your household financial situation and setting honest and attainable numbers corresponding to your spending so that you can save. Saying you will save and thinking about savings is not enough. You will have to be intentional about what you do with your money.
2. Understand the Concept of Cash Flow
You need to understand cash flow: What it is, how it works and what your personal household outgo looks like. Review your income and expenses and see where your spending habits lay. Be intentional about making changes to things you can, to have money available to save.
3. Work With Your Partner
If you are married or live with someone, communication and teamwork concerning your household finances are crucial. To save, you both need to be on board with your desires, plans, and resources. The best-laid plans without everyone on board will meet turmoil.
4. Distinguish Between "Want" and "Need"
Understand the differences between needs and wants and identify yours. Be able to say no when something doesn't align with your financial goals, today and in the future.
5. Make It Automatic
Automate savings so the money stays. If you wait until the end of the month to save, the likelihood will be that there is not much left to save. Make it automatic and have money deposited straight out of your paycheck, or have a portion go into a savings account whenever you make a deposit. If you have a few savings objectives, you can track the money you put into each account and put it through one account or use a few different savings accounts open for various goals. When you see your savings' growth, you are more likely to keep it there.
6. Do a Review
Sometimes we do not even realize what we are spending each month until we examine it. Review everything you pay for. What are you buying that you might not need? If you do need it, is there a way to get it for less?
7. Look for Places to Cut
What expenses or items can you cut to enhance your savings goals? There are five key areas to review for opportunities, including energy and utilities, food and groceries, banking and credit card fees, taxes, and auto expenses (gas and insurance).
8. Think of the Children
Also, take into consideration your children. It is incredibly important to teach them about savings and spending. And to set an example: They mirror your behaviors and will take your lead on the role of money in their lives. Some essential lessons include waiting to purchase something you want, saving, identifying specific ways for children to save such as using jars or envelopes, making wise choices and understanding that when money is spent, it can not be spent somewhere else.
Remember whatever your goal is, start now. Something will always come up and compete for your resources. Saving for the future should stay in the forefront of your mind (and your finances!) regardless of whatever else comes around.
10. Enjoy Life
Yes, we've been preaching the virtues of discipline, belt-tightening, and resisting instant gratification. But everyone is only human. Recognizing the importance of savings doesn't mean you can't now and again spend on things for fun, relaxation, celebrations, or just for the hell of it. But be sure to build the occasional splurge into your budget.
