Most people are admittedly very lax about their finances. So lax in fact they do not bother finding out if they have savings or not. It is not just a priority for most people and it sort of makes you wonder why. See, the key to remaining financially stable is not the amount of your income; it is based on how much of that income you save up. You have to aware of how much you are spending. It really does not do for you to spend all of your income. Think about it like this, if you take in a certain amount, like say $700 a month and you spend all of your salary and you use your credit card for other expenses.
That means that not only did you spend all of your salary but you are also in debt. That is alarming because you are getting in so much trouble, you want to know why? See, not only are you getting in debt by spending more than you are earning, but you are also not saving any money. That puts you in a lot of trouble because you may end up needing emergency cash one day and not have that set aside. You are also in trouble because you are deep in credit card debt.
You must think about how this affects your credit. Hat if you decide that you need a loan? It might get rejected because you have such massive debts. These are the things that you have to take in mind.
If you want to be financially stable, you have you start cutting back on your spending and start making a financial plan. It is easier to save up money when you have clear set goals that you can aim for. Once you have these goals, it is much easier to save up money. They can be short term or long term goals, or maybe even both. In fact, it is better to make both goals. You can write them down so that you can keep ticking off a goal every time you accomplish one. You can bet that with a financial plan, your finances will improve.
