    6 Tips to Save Money Regularly

    1. Begin Tracking Your Finances

    One of the best ways to save money is to keep track of your income and expenditure right from receiving your first salary. First, classify all your expenses into two categories - fixed and variable. You can further classify your variable expenses into important and avoidable costs.

    For example, house rent, basic groceries, etc., can be classified under fixed and essential expenses. On the other hand, electricity bills, water bills, fuel costs for commuting between your home and office, etc., can be classified as variable but essential expenses. Lastly, eating out, weekend travels, etc., can come under variable but avoidable costs.


    2. Create a Monthly Budget

    Make a monthly budget based on your income expenditure. Next, consider trimming your avoidable expenses to make room for more savings, and try to stick to this monthly budget. This can help you get a clear picture of your spending habits and deter you from spending money on unnecessary items.

    Moreover, you'll become more efficient in saving money each month by adjusting your budget according to your spending habits.


    3. Keep Money in Separate Accounts

    Segregating your funds into different Savings Accounts can be the best way to save money from your salary. You can use different Savings Accounts to create funds for various short-term goals like buying a car, vacation, etc. You can also create one account only to incur all the monthly expenses and another just to save and invest. 


    4. Begin Investing

    Once you learn how to save money from your salary, investing is the next step. Start building your investment portfolio by regularly investing in different investment avenues like Stocks, Mutual Funds, Government and Non-Government Schemes, etc.

    Remember, your goal should be to create a well-balanced and diversified investment portfolio that aligns with your goals and risk appetite.


    5. Open a Fixed Deposit Account

    Opening a Fixed Deposit Account is the best way to save money. It is the safest way to earn assured returns at attractive interest rates.
