Financial planning – Why and How?

Knowing your financial planning requirements

Saving money is stressful, and if you don’t know how to save and again are stressed over the fact that you cant save you just get double the stress and still no money or solution you find. So let’s know financial planning why it is needed and how it can be done?

But that’s okay, we have all been there and faced this situation in life. Here are my few tips that will help you get started on the path towards sensible savings.

  • Figure out your needs and wants -One must know what is most necessary items of expenditure for him/ her like rent, food, utilities, groceries, petrol, etc. and then try to find and figure out ways of reducing your expenses. It can be in any way like carpool, cutting down snacking so you can focus on items you want and actually need.
  • Set a monthly budget – Yes, it works and I have personally tried it. Set up weekly/ daily spending limit, it helps bring you closer to your saving goals. This will make you cautious and help save more.
  • Have specific and significant goals like I want to save 1 lakh by the end of year
  • Save and then spend the olden golden rule
  • Don’t have bad spending habits
  • Set aside a certain amount, invest in MF’s, FD’s,  RD’s

But all this is not enough, we need proper financial planning for long term goals. We need advice from financial people who can guide us and advise us.

    Very useful tips. Setting a monthly budget is so imp, especially when you have a family to look after. I keep writing my monthly expenses to keep a tab on how much I am spending in a month.

  5. for someone like me, who has no idea about financial planning – this was very informative. my husband does every planning at our home, and I have been meaning to learn this. #Princyreads

  6. I am so bad at this. I have started noting my monthly expenses on an excel sheet. Numbers make me feel like Taare Zameen Par. But I know planning is very important. Thanks for sharing. #wordsmithkaurreads #MyFriendAlexa #BlogChatter

  7. One of the most important things is that Insurance and Investment should be separated.
    Many Indians make the mistake of using Insurance products as investments under 80C and end up getting poor returns.
