Saving more money today starts by creating a budget. Many financial experts recommend 50/20/30 rule of budgeting. First, divide your monthly income in the following way:
Sounds simple, right? Budgeting might seem easier said than done. Here are four tips that will help you save money in all three categories to meet your budget goals.
1. Save money at the grocery store. Plan your weekly menu around specials at the grocery store. Stock up on non-perishable sale items. Clip coupons and shop on double coupon days. Skip name brands and buy generic items.
2. Lower your utilities bill. Install low-flow toilets and faucets. Fix leaky faucets. Install programmable thermostats and set temperatures a little lower in the winter and a little higher in the summer. Turn off lights and the TV when not in use. Your utility bill will drop each month.
3. Open an account dedicated to savings. You may save more money if you use a dedicated savings account for your financial goals instead of keeping all of your funds in a checking account. Arrange for automatic transfers into your savings account on payday or directly deposit a portion of your check into savings.
4. Limit your restaurant meals. Eating out can be expensive; limit your meals at restaurants to a reasonable number each month. Try new recipes at home to keep your meals interesting. Make cooking a family effort and involve your entire household in meal-planning.
