How To Budget Money

There are ways to handle money sensibly. Here are some ideas:

Sit down, and write down the money you spend on different things, over a week. It will surprise you.

– If possible, only buy on a cash basis – don’t borrow money with a loan or credit card.

– If you are considering buying something, wait for some days and check
prices elsewhere!

– Buy things at the end of their season, when they may be cheaper.

– Learn to mend things to make them last longer.

– Use a shopping list, so that you do not buy extra things you do not need. (This is called ‘impulse buying’!)

– Look for special cheap offers.

– Don’t believe what advertisements tell you!

– Share things with your friends.
