The first step is to determine how much money you can save each month. Creating a monthly budget can give you a realistic idea of your spending. This step also helps you understand how much is being used for needs, wants, debt repayment and savings.
Keep a detailed record of all your expenses, including the date, amount, and category of each transaction. Regularly review and analyze your spending patterns to identify areas where you can save money and make adjustments to your budget accordingly.
The most important thing is to pay off the smallest debt first so that after this one, it will be easier for you to save more money and then gradually work on paying off the other ones until everything is paid off. It’s not easy, but it’s very important in order to avoid any expenses.
Save more by automating your savings. You can make this easier by setting up a direct deposit from your paycheck into a savings account. The money that you save will likely be the same amount each month, so there’s no need to keep track of it or remember to transfer it.
Investing in a savings tool highly depends on your financial goals. You should invest your money into something that gives you the best returns while keeping your money safe. You can invest in mutual funds, NPS, index funds, FD, PPF, Post Office Savings and NSC.
One of the best ways to save money from your salary is by eliminating non-essential expenses. Some ways are wait for discounts before purchasing something when it’s not urgent. Review and cut down your recurring charges. Track your credit card spending. Avoid eating out (or eating at home all the time) whenever possible.
