As we work all week long and come home exhausted each night, we all wait and anticipate Friday when we get paid for all of our efforts.  Once we get that paycheck we run to a bank such as Columbia Bank South Plainfield and deposit our money.  Then when we go home we start going through all of our bills and our level of excitement quickly drops because what we through we had to play with, is now really nothing.

The first thing that you need to do is pay your bills.  Yes, I know it is a bummer and you really want to go out and have fun.  However, if you pay your bills first and know that they are out of the way, you are cleaning your mind and your ability to do other things with your money.


The next thing that you want to do is start some type of savings.  When we start saving money, we are setting ourselves up for a day where money dries up or we want or need to get something that we don’t have the money for.  When we save our money, we want to save as much as we possibly can.  One way to do this is to look at every purchase that we intend to make and really ask ourselves if it is something that we need to make.  If it is no, then we may want to consider postponing that purchase or put the money into savings.

Treat yourself

Saving money and managing your money is great and we all need to do it.  However, don’t become frugal and stash all your money way in a sack under the mattress.  We all work hard for our money and we do what we can to live a comfortable life.  However, it is always good to treat yourself to a deal or special something.  Don’t forget that.  It will make all the saving you do worth it.
