Saving is the part of a persons's income that is not spent, for future or emergency use. For example, putting money aside in a bank, for un expected expenses such as sudden job loss, car repair etc. for future uses eg, save for retirement , kids education. Money saved gives us security and safety.
There are so many tips on google about money saving, but I like to share the followings;
Make a budget; take all the monthly expenses, try to cut back or minimize the ones you can, and look for opportunities to maximize saving. By keeping a budget you avoid spending than you earn.
Pay yourself first ; make saving a habit, each time you get paid, deposit 10% of your income into saving account .
Make a shopping list before you go to shop, and stick to it . So that you can avoid over spending.
Try to buy things that cost less instead of things that cost more.
Don't buy into trends; keep a wardrobe of classic pieces so that you don't need update your clothes every year.
Save your coins; empty your pockets every day and put all change in a jar,don't touch it, until a specific use.
Pause for a thought ; if you are about to buy something, which isn't a necessity, wait and think twice, before you make a purchase, give yourself a time to compare prices , or come up with a plan b, or decide not to buy.
So money can't buy happiness but make life easier and comfortable.
