How To Get Your Finances on Track?

Follow these simple steps and track your finances right and save for a better future!

Even if you have a perfect financial plan in place, while managing day to day expenses, sometimes you find that spending has gone off the rails. It happens to the best of us, and the situation may bring financial distress and interdependence. One starts looking for credits and the repayment becomes a stressful obligation. Over time, the cost of expenses will increase, leading to a financial crisis altogether. Here’s how to get back on track:

Assess the damage
As a rule, we should review our budget at the end of every month. This becomes crucial after you have blown out your budget and are trying to fix the damages. Identify and note down what worked during the month, what didn’t and what you’re going to do going forward. If you overspent, then trying to figure out was it an emergency expenditure or something you didn't include in your budget? Understanding this will help you make a better plan for the future.

Analyse and decide your financial goals
After the assessment, analyse your budget and set your financial goals. Include all the short-term goals like higher education, purchasing a car etc. and long-term goals like children education, and marriage as well. When you calculate, keep inflation rate (future) in mind.

Track, create or alter your financial budget
Now that you have assessed, analysed and created your new budget, you can start tracking process:

- Identify the unwanted expenses and try to exclude them
- Limit the expenditure for which you cannot define the exact amount required
- Discover purchases that can be bought for a lesser price and buying at the best prices in future
- Invest in purchases that are necessary and get them at the right stages in life
- Allocate at least 20 percent of your income exclusively for the purpose of a money savings plan
- Consider the inflation rates on long term financial goals
