START SAVING FROM DAY ONE

Heard the saying “Every drop makes the mighty ocean”? Very often, people wait until their earnings reach a certain amount to start saving. It can be very tempting to indulge and splurge lavishly with your first income. However, putting aside money month-on-month no matter how small the amount is ideal to help prepare for a rainy day. Disciplined saving habits do take time and effort to cultivate but once they become ingrained, the benefits are multiple and long-term.

PLAN AHEAD

Whether an aspirational outfit, a high-end car, or a luxurious holiday, major non-essential expenses must always be planned. Planning grants give one the opportunity to save adequately and choose a more value-beneficial deal. This will also eliminate the need to undertake a personal loan which can be excruciating to pay back on account of high-interest rates.

Programs that offer points earning benefits when paying off routine utility bills for gas, mobile, or electricity, etc. not only prove to be a one-stop solution for members but, also rewards them for making basic, calendarized payments which they would have anyway conducted as part of their lifestyle. This provides the convenience of time and effort saving along with an additional earning opportunity for loyalty points which when accrued could help fund a future expense such as air tickets, hotel bookings, dining bills, and more.

INCREASE INVESTMENT AND SPEND SMARTLY

One of the proven methods of building wealth is investing smartly. Whenever undertaking a major expense always evaluate the value of that product in a few years. If after a few years, the value of the product diminishes, think twice before incurring that expense. Instead, identify and invest in assets that multiply in value over a period of time. For instance, instead of purchasing an extremely high-end new car, one can consider buying a second-hand car and investing the remaining amount in stocks or real estate that is expected to appraise in a few years.

Pro-tip: An ideal way to save on the cost of health insurance is to use the plan that is provided through your employer. (IANS/SP)
