Tips to follow the beat of your finances:

Know your expenses to a tee.

The first step to begin saving is to know where you spend your money, both daily and monthly. You can track your expenses with pen and paper, using a spreadsheet, or you can use a free online expense app or platform.



Create the beat of your budget.

A monthly budget shows you your expenses compared to your income. List out your fixed expenses: rent, mortgage, car payment, loans, etc. Then, make a list of your variable expenses (food, gas, entertainment, etc.) and combine the two. Once you add them up, compare the amount to your net income and determine a realistic percentage of the money you can save.

Pull the plug on excess spending.

Cutting expenses can really help you save the way you want to. We can always spend less in the entertainment and leisure categories. Look for free activities, cook at home instead of eating out, and shop when you need to and not when you want to.

Establish your savings hits.

A good way to commit to saving is to set short-term and long-term goals. Decide how much you want to save and how much money you will need to set aside to reach that goal. Always plan and prioritize your needs.

Move to your new beat.

Once you start seeing the fruits of your savings, the feeling will be so gratifying that you will want to turn this habit into a lifestyle. Don't stop! Saving is the smartest way to make money.
