Professional savings techniques

Have cash or current access to certain money to meet your needs in real-time. Investments are made to accomplish certain goals, but unexpected needs or crises don’t wait for your investment to grow. So put aside some funds which you can assess anytime you want.
Prioritise your monthly cost.
List all your bills, groceries and investment of your months for a clear understanding of your money and requirements.
Making your goal specific and measurable, the most crucial factor is to understand the current monetary situation. Monthly bills and costs, directly reflect the structure which is most suitable for one’s life.
Like a diet and study plan, have a money plan
Right or wrong.
Today or tomorrow.
Losing or without losing.

In order to be financially powerful, you must pay your debt first.
To build your reputation and build wealth over that reputation.
By using refinance or low-interest loans, clear all your debts. Start with higher interest or expensive debts.
Reduce the regular use of credit cards to make your credit score healthier.
Reduce the loan tenure (Total months), and pay extra money than regular installment to pay off debt sooner.
Consolidate multiple debts into lower interests and singular installments.
Follow snowball methods of paying debts.
Ditch the wrong partners
Like in our life, there are lots of bad investments from money that we make.
1. Unnecessary subscriptions, or services.
1.a. Suppose you have in-built gym in your society and you still pay to private gym, where you hardly go once a month,
1.b. Imagine you hardly have time for TV.
Mostly you watch daily news, shows or movies on OTT or via websites, and you still pay for cable which you hardly watch.
2. Unnecessary habits
2.a. Shopping when you are bored.
2.b. Shopping whenever you see a discount or eye caching offers.
2.c. Regular eating out instead of preparing your own breakfast or lunch.
2.d. Using credit cards frequently.
2.e. Shopping beyond your grocery list weekly or monthly, because of the way shopping complexes are designed. Buy what you need and whatever your budget allows. No more, no less.
Bad partners always lead to painful or dangerous roads. Earlier you ditch, the happier you are.
Replace this money for your experiences.
Like travelling, adventure, charity, helping others, starting side hustle and almost anything you want.
Savings costs nothing
Your time is most precious.
Imagine using a few minutes of your time, by using websites you save real 20%, 30% or 60% on a product.
Finding a few helpful websites to compare prices and help you with real coupons.
Keep your open to make a difference in your life -
a) Fake coupons/ offer (To make you purchase at same price by simply shuffling information),
b) Magic coupon/ discount (To help you purchase something at a lower price, which you have been chasing for weeks.)
Saving money is equivalent to earning.
Monitor, measure and choose
Analyzing earnings and spending, and having the right tracking help you make smarter decisions.
Measuring a goal makes it easier and transparent.
With your money vs life expectations and needs more clear.
Monitoring the goals and expenses, and measuring the weekly/ monthly growth in a fraction of second, makes your decision easier at any time.
For that you simply need to put your earning vs spending record in the right order.
To predict the future expenses, profits and inflation over time.
Needs vs wants
Whenever you are confused about what to buy and what not.
Then make a list of all your buying items.
Now make 2 columns of Needs and Wants.
Needs: Everything you require to have you a good life.
Wants: Anything to fulfill your luxury, desires or fantasy.
In rough or good times, go for needs first.
Making money, money and money
Alone saving can only fulfill your needs. To fully experiment and live your dreams, especially in this era, savings are not enough.
For that not everyone has to be a businessman.
The right solution is to make an investment. Use that investment to run a small business for your continuous income stream.
Invest directly in small businesses and monitor your growth in real-time, while all businesses are managed by experts.
