It is really hard to save when your monthly salary can hardly support your living expenses. And no-one can deny it including myself. But there are many creative ways to cut your living expenses such as: choose a lifestyle, change your spending habits, read all the saving tips and follow the good ones and start saving.

Choose a lifestyle

If you have the guts to discuss it with your family, you will be surprised with the ideas you can come up with to save. You and your family have to understand and accept what kind of lifestyle you can afford and what you want to have when you can no longer earn active income. It is important that you start your financial plan now before it is too late. First know where you are before as you set your financial goal. Know the tools that will help you to make your money work for you. Aim to learn how you can reach your financial goals.

Change your spending habits

Buy only when you need it. Buy the best you can afford. Avoid buying junk food. Junk food is not nutritious. It is not only bad for the health but also adds to your expenses. Choose the most nutritious food at the lowest price. Choose high quality clothes that will last long and will still look good even if you used them many times. Become practical and wise. Re-use old furniture that still works will lessen your expenses at home too.

Read all the saving tips and follow the good ones

Take time to read tips on how to save for utilities like water, electricity, gasoline, telephone, mobile phones and others. Be careful of advertisements that ask you to spend more so you can save. Always ask yourself if you really need them. Learn to distinguish your wants from your needs.

Start saving now while still young

You can start by saving a small fixed amount everyday. Do not wait until you reach your retirement age. Continued saving is important – you can save even when you spend your needs and wants. And if your savings are invested properly they will grow to bring you financially independent and you will retire comfortably with enough money to live and enjoy with your chosen lifestyle with your family.

Very good tips, most people do not realize that it is not how much they make that matters most, it is how you spend what you do make.
