Identifying means of automating your savings is becoming a popular culture among those seeking to achieve their financial goals. Saving to achieve financial security and saving to invest in particular have led to the habit of saving is a frequent financial decision. Adopting a saving culture early will help you avoid spending what you don’t have or cannot afford especially when you are in debt or need to clear credit payments.
When selecting your savings account before automating your savings, consider the following:
With your account open, set simple, measurable, attainable, realistic and measurable savings goals (SMART saving goals). Track your progress against each separately. Your goals should define how much money you plan to have saved, and after what period.
You may begin to feel impatient because of the slow increase in your savings balance. Remember, change takes time, however, there are measures you can take to increase the amount of money saved in the household and grow your savings faster.
Financial literacy helps you manage your household finances, achieve your financial goals and plan your future. Your partner/spouse or your children deserve to understand good money management. This in the end helps us to appreciate the value of money as we spend what we earn
