7 Tips to Help You Manage Your Money Better!

Use these 7 practical financial tips as a guide to financial freedom & prosperity. 

1. Make a Personal Budget

Creating a budget is a great first step in developing healthier money habits and learning how to get the most from your money. 

According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), “budgeting helps ensure that you’ll have enough money for the things you need and the things you want, while still building your savings for future goals.”

2. Track Your Spending

Tracking your spending could be one of those good habits. After all, it may help you avoid overspending and stay within your budget.

How do you keep track of your spending? It’s simple. You could record your expenses using your mobile phone with Khatapana.

3. Save for Retirement

It may help to start small when it comes to retirement savings. In other words, you could save a small amount every month for now, and then add to it when you feel ready.

Keep in mind that compound interest can be an important reason to start saving early. The compound interest will help you accelerate your savings by earning interest on interest.

4. Save for Emergencies

Putting away savings in an emergency fund for unexpected life events—like being laid off from the job or paying for medical emergencies —may help you feel better about your financial situation.

5. Plan to Pay Off Debt

Paying off debt may also help you better manage your finances and reduce money-related anxiety and stress.

Here are two plans recommended by the CFPB for becoming debt free:

  • Snowball Method: The "snowball method," simply put, means paying off the smallest of all your loans as quickly as possible. Once that debt is paid, you take the money you were putting toward that payment and roll it onto the next-smallest debt owed. Ideally, this process would continue until all accounts are paid off.
  • Debt Avalanche Method: The "avalanche method" focuses on paying the loan with the highest interest rate loans first. Similar to the "snowball method," when the higher-interest debt is paid off, you put that money toward the account with the next highest interest rate and so on, until you are done.

6. Establish Good Money Habits

Here are some of the good habits to start with:

  1. Pay on time
  2. Save whatever you can even if it is a small amount
  3. Use Khatapana to track all your transactions
  4. Do not spend on unnecessary things

7. Improve Your Money Mindset

What you do with your money is important. You may spend it or make your money work for you. 

Yes, you can put your money to work instead of you working to earn more money.
