Easy Budgeting Tips To Try While Working From Home
Some may think they’re saving more because they incur lesser expenses when working from home – no more frequent delivery takeout for lunch or daily filling-up of gasoline – but that’s not always the case. The good news is you can consistently add to your savings by adapting easy budgeting habits and tips.
Let’s admit it: sticking to a budget is easier said than done. But like with any #adulting skill, you’ll get better with practice! Learning it may look like experimenting, failing, and starting over, but stay the course and you’ll get your groove in no time!
Since every person’s income — or allowance if you’re a student — is different, these tips are beginner-friendly and can be applied to small budgets. Check them out below:
1. Organize weekly or monthly allowance for daily expenses
Set budgets for each of your daily expenses, such as transportation, gas, and food; or even for your daily fix of coffee. It’s important that you give yourself a weekly allowance, and then create daily budgets based on how much you’ve allotted for yourself.
Even if you’re on a budget, make sure it’s a comfortable one! At the end of the day, you need to allow yourself small liberties so you can still enjoy your hard-earned money.
2. Set aside part of your monthly income for savings
Think of your savings as a “bill” that you need to pay first. You can start with 10% of your monthly income, and then gradually increase once you’re more comfortable with your budgeting plans. And since you’re treating this as an obligation, you may want to open up a bank account just for your savings.
3. Evaluate your mobile, digital, or streaming subscriptions
One of the ways you can improve your budgeting skills is to keep extra expenses to a minimum. Apart from allotting majority of your budget to savings, you need to set aside budget for bills – it’s a priority.
When dealing with your monthly subscriptions, it’s best to ask yourself if it’s a necessity or if you can simply unsubscribe until when you’re in a more comfortable spending stage. Keep subscriptions you always use, then let go of the ones you feel you no longer need.
4. Limit Usage of Food Delivery Apps
It’s easy to satisfy cravings with the use of delivery apps, but sometimes it can get out of hand. One of the easiest ways to save more of your weekly allowance or monthly income is to cut down on having takeout food delivered on a regular basis.
Home-cooked meals are best enjoyed with the family! And on the weekends, you can stock up on your favorite snacks so you have something to grab when your cravings kick in the middle of a workday.
