BUDGETING HACK THAT CHANGES MY STORY
Setting a budget for all of our expenses is always a good idea because it helps us keep track of our spending and stop/curb unnecessary spending. Budgeting is one of the most important aspects of our financial dealings that aid the possibility of having a financially secure lifestyle free from overspending or unplanned investments that are beyond our capability.
In summary, it is impossible to overstate the importance of budgeting in helping us reach a level of independence and financial stability because it is the key to keeping our wants and needs in check before making purchases or paying bills.
As a man, I have many expenses and needs to satisfy for various people. Because of this, even though I am not married, I may spend all of my money without being able to track where it went. This made me think critically, which gave rise to the idea of creating a budget to control and manage my spending.
- Itemizing And Differentiating My Needs From My Want: One of the things that helped me and improved my financial situation was the ability to distinguish between what I need and what I want. Ever since I was able to do so, I've learned to give my needs priority over my wants in order to have enough money to take care of other obligations.
Prepare for a potential drought: Since nothing in the modern world is truly definite, as we all know, I always prepare for the possibility of a drought that could develop within the month and end up disrupting my plans and finances.
When making plans, I try as much as I can to think ahead to the possibility that I might not be able to find a job during the month, how I'll survive it, and the like. For example, the price of cryptography cannot be pinpointed to a specific amount.
Put something aside for miscellaneous: As a result, I always make an effort to save money for unforeseen or anticipated events. For instance, no one can predict when they will get sick, and having a set aside fund stated in our budget can help us deal with these occurrences without it having an impact on our financial situation or savings and investing practices.
