2. Have more than one source of income

It is not advisable to have only one source of income because there is no real guarantee. To be on the safe side, you should have as many sources of income as your time and strength will permit.

There are a lot of avenues to make passive income in recent times. Get information on any one that you may be interested in and start increasing your sources of income.

3. Develop the habit of saving

The secret of saving is to start by saving small amounts. A lot of experienced people have advised that saving 10% is ideal, you may go above that depending on your spending habit. If you have not been saving in the past, starting with 10% may be difficult so you could start with a lower percentage. You can start increasing the percentage as time passes, just start somewhere and don’t stop.

4. Increase your financial knowledge

This is one area you must strive to constantly increase your knowledge. There are a lot of good books, audio and video tapes that have been produced in the area of personal finance management.

Invest your money and time on such materials and constantly increase your financial knowledge. You can start with one financial management book per year and increase the number as it becomes a part of you.

5. Don’t spend on impulse

Sometimes you may face the temptation to spend on impulse. You walk through a shop, you see an item you really like and without careful thought, you purchase it.

Try to avoid such temptations, learn to have a spending budget for each month and work with it. You will be able to control your expenses if you have a budget for each month and stick to your plan.

These are really simple techniques that anyone one with any level of education and income can put to practice. I hope you find them very helpful!

    Another way to save: Always create a budget and eat before grocery shopping. If you are hungry while grocery shopping you can find yourself overindulging in things you never intended to buy. Prepare a budget and eat before you leave. You will eliminate unnecessary purchases that after a years time can add up and blow your budget.
