No matter the salary, somehow our expenditure seems to exceed the income!
Every month we all make a pledge to not spend more than what is required, and yet we are never able to keep that promise, which is why we need to handle our expenditure a little more carefully.
Do you know what the problem is? You are always making a promise but with a plan!
You will need a structural plan to execute if you want to save up for that Paris trip. If we live a little more holistically, our savings will skyrocket like anything.
All we need’s a little bit of determination and thought of the future!
Why Do We Need To Save More?
If you are asking yourself this question, then you are probably ordering something again with that little dime of money that is left in your account.
Don’t do it!
You need to save up because, in case of emergency, that amount will be a savior.
Savings are not only important to fulfill your long-term goals, but also to get some insurance for [god forbid!] accidents.
Saving up money is a good habit when you want some of your future events to be great. Plus, you do not have to worry about the uncertainty of the future.
Here Is How You Can Cut Down On Your Expenditure
If you are fully determined about saving money and want to cut down on your expenditure, then here are the five important areas which you can start with.
1. Paying For Online Streaming
Are you still doing that!
On-demand paying services are expensive, and you should start by stopping yourself from doing that.
Have you never heard about something called the pirate bay? If not, then welcome to the free entertainment equivalent of heaven!
With just one click, you can get access to every content that you have been looking for. It could be movies, the latest series, games, software, and many more.
2. Buying Loads Of Cosmetics
Do you really think you need three types of cleansers?
Plus, using too many products on your face can be really damaging. How about you learn minimalist living? You can start by buying one face wash, one scrub which you use weekly, and one moisturizer.
That’s all that your face needs.
Please, do not waste your money on things that are harming your face, for example, face sheets and makeup cleansing wipes. They are not good for your skin, and they are not good for the environment.
3. Purchasing Clothes Every Month
Yes, I know what you are thinking!
We all need clothes, but who said every month?
You can buy some clothes, and they can easily sustain you for the next six months. Yes, it is tempting when you see something you really need but do ask yourself.
– How many times is this happening?
Do you need that ‘one dress’ just once in a blue moon, or is it something happening every month?
4. Getting Daily Takeouts
Yes, we all are busy, but getting daily take accounts is causing one big hole in your pocket [account].
You might not believe it, but gathering ingredients and cooking food at home is much safer for your income than ordering food every day.
This is one of the major areas that you need to work on if you are spending dollars for every meal every day. Doing this once in a while is fine since that is a luxury you might want to afford sometimes.
But, honey, start cooking! It is also therapeutic.
5. Using Too Much Electricity
This is something that we might not know that we are doing!
Since we are getting light with just a switch and instant cooling by simply dialing something, we have started taking electricity for granted.
You might not want to do that!
It is not just about saving money, but electricity is an important resource which we should all sustainably work towards preserving.

Now that you know the key areas where you can save up, you should start by making a budget right now.
Remember to specify your needs and differentiate them from your desires.
We are not asking you to spend money on your wants and only stick to your needs. We are just asking you to question yourself, whether you need it this month when you have a huge electricity bill, or can you save it for the next month’s expenditure.
