Start with planning your money spending with use of a guide.
Create a guide on how you would plan to use your money. Prioritize in paying yourself before paying your bills, for if you pay your bills first, you will have little in returns for savings. Then plan already what you’d like to save for in the long run and for the sake of businesses.
3. Refrain from using credit cards, use debit cards as an alternative.

This is not to rain on your parade, but it’s the truth in this that credit cards encourage you to live in a shallow, superficial manner. Without a credit card, a person is happier. However a better alternative would be a debit card, because you can place how much you can put there for your friday night out with the boys or when you would go to a local bar and all.

Find foundations that will benefit to society and please refrain from forgetting to give. This is a choice that only you can make, but from your choice can also help improve the country in one way or another.
6. Always remember to save every time you have a transaction in the day.
Whether it’s payday or a holiday gift, remember to keep save what you have so you can see the progress come though gradually.
