If you wish to fulfil milestones that need higher financing, then savings need to become a habit of your life. Once you attain adulthood, responsibilities might increase and spending money in vain might not be a good idea anymore. Without savings, you not only become vulnerable to financial difficulties. Moreover, if you are in habit of making unnecessary purchases, you run the risk of draining your financial resources. Timely savings are a must.
If you have enough funds in form of savings, then you at least you may live a stress-free life. Life is unpredictable, and therefore build a sufficient reserve to tackle any emergency. Saving money also helps us in celebrating milestones of our life and at the same time to tackle and health related emergencies. The golden rule of saving is to spend less than you earn and make savings a monthly habit. However, it is important to set goals when saving. When you don’t have a purpose for saving money, aimless spending can seem like a harmless act. Our saving goals may be short-term, mid-term, and long-term and vary from person to person. They can include any of the following or more:
- Pursuing higher education
- Buying a car/ bike
- Starting own business
- Buying your own house
- Child’s marriage
- Travel or pilgrimage trip
- Saving for your retirement
- Paying off any debts or loans
- Paying off healthcare expenses
Consistency is the key to achieving any goal. When it comes to your financial goals too, a mix of consistent savings and investing can bring about desired financial success and help you live the life you deserve.
