It definitely feels good when we get a job. The happiness doubles up when we get our first salary. But it is just not enough to have a good income, but saving it is also important. So, for the beginners, there are many budgeting tools available online. They can be a legal pad or an excel spreadsheet. Just as the government follows a budgeting process, we, to avoid unwanted expenditure, should maintain financial records. In this way, we can end up saving more and spending less.

But the question is where to start from? What should be the steps that are to be followed? It becomes really difficult for the beginners to determine what expenses to cut and what to keep. But, as the proverb says, “Where there is a will, there is a way”, the following are the few methods which can help a lot.

Scrutinize your expenditure

To save for the future, it is important to look back to the past and examine the expenditure that you have been doing. How much money you have been spending and on which account? Was it the regular expenditure that you will need to do every month? Or was it invested somewhere else? In this way, you will be able to get a clear picture of your flow of money.

Anticipate the upcoming expenses

Along with the calculation of the previous expenses, it is also important to estimate the incoming expense. We all are able to evaluate more or less some of the future expenses such as seasonal works or unpredictable commissions etc. So we should all maintain a record of such a levy.

Shape your expenditure

Now your next step will be to find out the account in which you want to invest your money. It is very important to chalk out then. If you avoid this step, then you might end up investing your money in some wrong or unnecessary account. This again will bring you down to the position where you were before.

Tips to muse on

  • First of all, do not repeat or rather set a permanent budget for every month. You should just focus on the next one and go with the flow.
  • Making a budget doesn’t mean it is an inexpungible one. The cost may arise or fall down in several months. Manage your budget respectively.
  • It should be a continuous process no matter what your financial condition is.

So, if you really want to manage your finance in a planned way, you should follow the above tips.
