Make plans and a budget

Basic budget tips:

  1. Look at how much money you have coming in versus how much you have going out.
  2. Look at where you could make cutbacks. For example, maybe you could cut down on takeaways and start cooking at home more often.
  3. Make enough cutbacks so that your out goings are eventually less than your incomings.
  4. Stick to this budget and you will soon see a little nest egg developing!
