In order for you to manage your finances, you have to minimize your expenses first. What you need right now is to pay for the mandatory bills that will help you survive for the month. I am talking about your utility bills here and budget for food and transportation in case you are going to work every day. The rest should be eliminated, especially unnecessary expenses. If you really want to learn how you can manage your monthly income, this is the first step that you should do.
I know it’s too hard to resist shopping nowadays. With lots of malls around you, it’s hard to resist the temptation of entering malls and passing by interesting items to shop. But, you should ask yourself, is it the right time to shop? Is unnecessary shopping really needed? One way you can manage your monthly income is to avoid unnecessary shopping. Try not to get tempted by the sales items in SM, Ayala, or Robinsons. If it’s not needed to pass by the mall, don’t do it. Try to divert your attention and do something that will not make you spend.
Savings should not be optional. You should not forget about it, especially if you really want to manage your monthly income. Your earnings can be limited, yes, but that doesn’t mean that you have to neglect your responsibility to save. Being a responsible person means having enough savings so that every time you experience financial struggles, you have something to rely on. With savings, you are paving your way to financial freedom and independence. Savings will help you become financially free someday, don’t forget about that.
