The Importance of Creating a Personal Financial Budget
Keeping track of your spending habits is the first step towards taking control of your finances. A financial budget can help you pinpoint which expenses are higher than you would like, and where you can find ways to save. That is powerful information because it gives you a greater ability to make informed decisions. Creating a personal financial budget may be easier to accomplish than you think.
Paying Down Debt
As a rule, you should pay down debt with the highest interest rates first. For most people, credit cards carry the highest rates of all of your outstanding debt. Focus on paying down your highest interest credit cards first. If possible, make more than the minimum payment required.
Setting Goals For Saving
Once you have identified how you are spending your money, you can start to establish a goal for how much you would like to spend every month, and how much you would like to save. A savings account gives you tremendous financial flexibility and freedom. It gives you an emergency fund for any unexpected expenses or loss of income. It is a first step towards owning your own home,paying for college or perhaps retirement. Decide on how much you would like to save each month, whether it is $500.00 or 10% or your income “tithe” It may not seem like a lot at first but “one one cocoa full basket” If you get into the habit of saving every month it will all add up.
