10 Ways to Effectively Save for the Future

10 Ways to Effectively Save for the Future

1. The first thing you need to do is have a budget and stick to it. This includes being realistic about your household financial situation, and setting honest and attainable numbers corresponding to your spending, so that you can save. Saying you will save and thinking about savings is not enough. You will have to be intentional about what you do with your money.

2. You need to understand cash flow; what it is, how it works and what your personal household cash flow looks like. Review your income and expenses and see where your spending habits lie. Be intentional about making changes to things you can, to have money available to save.

3. If you are married, communication and team work concerning your household finances are crucial. To save, you both need to be on board with your desires, plans and resources. The best laid plans without everyone on board, will meet turmoil.

4. Understand the differences between needs and wants and identify yours. Be able to say no when something doesn’t align with your financial goals, today and in the future.

5. Automate savings so the money goes and stays. If you wait until the end of the month to save, the likelihood will be that there is not much left to save. Make it automatic and save when you first get paid. If you have a few savings objectives, you can track the money you put into each account and put it through one account or use a few different savings accounts open for various goals. When you see savings and its growth, you are more likely to keep it there.

6. Review everything you pay for. What are you paying for that you might not need? Is there a way to pay less? Sometimes we do not even realize what are spending each month until we examine it.

7. What expenses or items can you cut to enhance your savings goals? Bank rate gives 5 opportunities in your budget and spending to cut expenses, including energy and car gas, food and groceries, banking and credit, taxes and car insurance. All of these areas should be reviewed for opportunities.

8. Remember whatever your goal is, start now. Something will always come up and compete for your resources. Saving for the future should stay in the forefront of your mind (and your finances!) regardless of whatever else comes around.

9. Also, take into consideration your children. It is incredibly important to teach them about savings and spending. They mirror your behaviors and will take your lead on the role of money in their lives. Some essential lessons, summarized in this Forbes article, include waiting to purchase something you want, saving, identifying specific ways for children to save such as using jars or envelopes, making wise choices and understanding that when money is spent, it can not be spent somewhere else.

10. Recognize the importance of savings, but also enjoy life.
