So, while keeping this thing in mind that money is hard to save, I am giving some insanely smart tips you can follow to save your money very easily.
1. Use bound bank account to save money
What did you understand with this term, Blind Bank account? I want to mention something here, Blind bank accounts are those account which does not have leakage. That account does not have any debit card or net banking access.
That will help you to retain your money in the bank for a longer period of time. Usually what happens, if you have debit card or net banking access for any bank account then you will lose money instantly.
Digital cash flows faster than actual physical cash. Try using hard cash instead of digital cash usually.
Here, I want to share one example with you.
Example: If you are buying a smartphone that costs around 20000 INR, you want to purchase it, from where do you buy? Online or offline? it’s your choice if you pay that 20000 INR through your credit card or debit card then, you will feel nothing, if for that same price you are paying through cash then you will feel the pain of losing cash.
I think most people have experienced this scenario.
So believe in Hard cash and save your, what we call in Hindi “Mehant ki kamai ” in your bank account.
2. Open Reoccuring Account(RD)
Most people in India don’t know what is RD, so I want to tell you little bit about it. RD is an account opened on your request. This is a kind of account in which money is auto credited through your primary bank account.
That amount is auto credited every month on same date on which you have started the RD account. One think you should keep in mind that bank will charge late fine if you missed any installment, while your RD is live.
So be clear about that and open an RD account today, contact your bank or nowadays you can instantly open an RD account through your banking app or net banking services.
3. Document your expenses
This is the best method everyone should opt, people nowadays in their busy schedule don’t get time to document their expenses, but this is the best technique to monitor your unwanted expenses.
Don’t buy a BMW if you can go office in Nissan, Yes you have full rights to buy anything you want. But if you are concerned about your savings then small little little things become big.
Now, How to document?, Where to document?
So, friends here nothing is mandatory, you can document your expenses on pen and paper, maintain a diary or you can also maintain an excel sheet, word document, sticky notes etc.
Its, up to you in which medium you feel comfortable.
