  1. Eliminate Your Debt

  • If you are trying to save money through budgeting but still have debt, start with the debt. Why?

  • Add up how much you spend servicing your debt each month, and you will quickly see.

  • Once you are free from paying interest on your debt, the money can easily be put into savings.

  1. Set Savings Goals

  • One of the best ways to save money is to visualize what you are saving for.

  • For example, you want to save for a BMW, you just visualize it to motivate yourself.

  • After that you can set a realistic target, how much you need to save every month to get the car in how long.

  • Once you have a visual and a plan, you can execute it!

  1. Pay Yourself First

  • Set up an auto debit from your checking account to your savings account every payday.

  • Don’t care if its RM50 every 2 weeks or RM500 every month, just do it.

  • Don’t lie to yourself out of a healthy long-term savings plan and simply take out the money.

  • If you feel like you don’t have enough discipline and keep touching the money, try to apply for a forced savings plan, like an insurance with investment-linked plan.

 

 

  1. Stop Smoking

  • You ever heard people say if you stop smoking you can buy a car? Well it is kind of true.

  • Let’s do some simple maths. 3 packs a week means roughly RM 50 per week. RM 255 per month and RM3,000 per year! 

  • With that amount of money you can go for a nice holiday overseas!

  • If you smoke your whole life, you could potentially be wasting more than RM100,000 in your lifetime!

  • You can keep a jar and everytime you want to smoke, put RM15-20 inside the jar instead you will see the results!

  • It literally means stay vacation.

  • Sometimes, you don’t have to go far for vacation. Just stay at home and relax, find something fun to do in your own house!

  • If you want to fly or travel, instead of going overseas, you can actually vacation in Malaysia itself for cheap, plus you don’t have to convert your money!

  1. Utility Savings

  • You can save on your utility bills by changing the way you live a little bit.

  • Instead of using the aircond, use the fan and turn it on high instead.

  • If you pack your own lunch, RM20 can last you the whole week!

  • Over the year, you can save thousands of ringgit in just doing this simple step!
