You need to save first — you’ll never save anything if you try to save the leftovers. Save 10% of your income on payday — reserve a few grand in savings for emergencies, and direct any surplus to investments. This way, you’ll always have a few grand sitting there for emergencies, like writing off your car or getting sick and not being able to work, but the rest of your savings will be earning you more money.You can go see a financial planner at your local bank, who, for a commission, will set up a mutual fund investment for you — you can put money into this each month from savings by direct debit.If you save 10% and accustom yourself to living on only 90% of your income, you will find your spending will adjust.Have a few meat free days a week, and take your lunch from home — this saves hundreds of dollars a year. See if you can get a cheap deal on your insurance, phone, and utilities — I check fairly regularly and have no loyalty. If it saves me money, I switch.Managing your money like a legend is not really hard, you just have to follow a few simple rules — save first, have money in reserve for emergencies, and don’t use borrowed money for buying things that go down in value. You should have a rough idea of where your money is going — do a simple spending diary and keep your receipts for a few weeks to find where it is going, work out average of what your major expenses are. Check up on it every year or so. It isn’t super hard, and it doesn’t have to be.You should try your library. Get some books out on personal finance. They are easy to read and you can take from them the tips you know you will use. It’s a free resource. 🙂
How to Save My Money.
I have a bad habbit of saving a couple hundred dollars and then finding something to spend it on. Any tips on how I can better control my spending habbits?
yes, you need to become rich.by that i mean, read book called “secrets of the millionaire mind”you’ll then have in your subconscious mind that having money is good and you don’t have to spend it to go back to “Zero”.never get credits for stuff that decrease in price, like always buy a car cash, no credits.you can only buy a house on credit, but make sure that it’s price is increasing.create a account in the bank called FFA, financial freedom account… in this account you’ll put 10% of all your earnings, and you’ll never spend this money. This money you’ll invest it (long term investments, not stock market)don’t buy stuff that you can live without, unless you have 3 to 4 times more the money, and the rest, you’re not planning to spend.one crazy advice, that will work, is to give away money… but you must be happy doing it, to someone that deserves, if you’re not happy you’ll just lose ityou get what you give

How to save money.
i have been doing my research on how to be a better mother. i’ve read all types of pregnancy and parenting books. now i’ve moved on on how to save money. i think I will use cloth diapers during the day and disposible ones at night. I’ve also thought of bying some of the basic stuff now and putting them…
I think it’s okay to plan and be excited for things (marriage, babies, etc.). But…wait on buying things. Styles change a lot in a year, you change a lot (your tastes in clothes, perhaps your weight, etc.), plus, you don’t know if you’re going to be big or one of those people who barely show.
how to save money on a eurotrip.
so next summer, i’d love to go to europe with my dad for 3-4 weeks, specifically to french-speaking regions so i can practice my french (corsica, monaco, france, belgium, luxembourg, switzerland, etc.) and maybe even stop in london for a couple days for the olympics (although, please excuse my ignorance, i have…
I assume you are not European, if so, you will be able to get an Eurail pass, not an InterRail.The man in seat sixty-one has a good site with lots of information for you: http://www.seat61.com/You ‘should’ read the page on France, the page on rail passes and maybe just roam around the site to see if there is something else you like to see.On the France page, (click on France in the bar on the left) you will see ‘how to buy tickets’ in the heading of the page, and How to travel from the UK to France, that info is as good for you as for people who start out in England.If you do decide for a rail pass, it is likely that a 3 countries Eurail Switzerland, France and Benelux will do.The UK is never included.Booking all your train travels early is likely cheaper but less flexible.On the French railway site you can book for all TGV trains as well as the Thalys and Eurostar, that are the high speed trains, and booking early you can save 50 to 90% of the price of tickets bought on the day of traveling.For cheap places to stay use one of the hostel booking sites, they also do cheap hotels and bed and breakfast kind of places.If you do not mind sharing a room with your dad you will often find hotels as cheap as two beds in a dorm in a hostel, but sometimes you will pay less when you go to hostels.France is a country to eat out, but hostels will allow you to do (part of) your own cooking. Cooked lunches in restaurants are often way cheaper than dinners, so if you want to eat out and still want to save money, go out for lunch and cook your own dinner.If you want to see some of the top games of the Olympics, you will have to apply for your tickets very soon, but often there will be sports that have games with tickets for sale when it is almost time for start.

How to save money.
without a savings account. I have started working and want to save my money to move out. The only problem is my mom will not let me open a bank account since it will hurt her food stamps and housing money(dont know the real name for it). I want to save money so I can move out, it is an unhealthy living…
Jeff and Stan C are on to something. Traveler’s checks are a wonderful way to go. You use your driver’s license to prove who you are. They are good for something like 10 years and require your signature when you buy them and when you cash them.You may have a nearby Deli or store which sells money orders for free or for 25 cents. That’s a good reasonable way go as well.I’ve done the envelope thing when I was younger and it worked perfectly. I had a little budget book with envelopes in it and I used a percentage of money to put in each envelope.Another thing you can do is this: Buy food or gas cards so you have them later. I do that now. Be careful which cards you buy as businesses are closing up like crazy. You want your gift card to be good. I bought gas, grocery store, subway shop and doughnut shop cards, so if I was low on cash, I had gift cards to resume all my normal way of life.I also fill the small M&M tubes with quarters for laundry. Each tube holds about $14.Skip the savings account! There’s not much to be earned and then you get taxed on it anyway. In your situation you don’t want to jeopardize yourself.You can put money in battery compartments, on the back of clocks, etc. Just remember where you have the money–if you go that route.If you leave your situation, you should be able to get social services as well. Hook up with a YWCA and find out what’s available for you. Hopefully a wonderful room mate will come along and keep your expenses low.Good luck.
How to save money.
I need a financial advise. Ive tried budgeting and stuff but i know nothing about making a budget and saving money and all that stuff. Is there anyone out there that would like to help me out?
Your mistake was trying to budget! Budgets usually don’t work. You need to be flexible. You need to change your habits. Everyone is different, everyone needs a different way that’ll work for them. There’s lots of good books on the subject of money management and frugality. Start reading! Find out what works for you. One of the best books out there is “The Automatic Millionaire” by David Bach. One thing I would recommend is having a bit of your paycheck sent directly to a savings account.You probably won’t miss the money and it’s a good start. If you really think about it I’m sure you’ll come up with some ideas. Make them painless or you probably won’t do them. Remember that they don’t have to be perfect. Just good. Any improvement at all is excellent. Change your mind and you’ll change your life!
