Learn How to Make and Stick to a Budget for a Wealthy Future

By Rahab Mbiriti / June 19, 2019




Wealth has different meanings to different people, but one common thing about a person becoming wealthy is the amount of money or assets they acquire in their life.

It is important to note that for one to be considered wealthy, one must go through a gruesome process of a lot of hard work and sacrifice.

According to Amana capital’s blog dubbed “There is no secret to wealth, there is no magic formula, there is no short-cut, there is only a simple set of steps which any and everyone can follow to put themselves on the path to a much wealthier future.

The blog stresses one important step in accumulating and securing a wealthy future, and that is Budgeting.

Budgeting allows you to create a spending plan for your money and therefore ensures that you will always have enough money for the things you need and the things that are important to you.

A budget helps you gain control of your finances

Think of a budget as a financial roadmap. It will guide you to your destination.

A budget helps you track all your spending and at the end of, say a month, you are able to see how you used all your finances.

To help avoid debt

If you’re living without a budget you may be living beyond your means. Spending more than you earn is an unhealthy habit because it leads to debt.

Setting and sticking to a budget will help you avoid getting into debt and it will help you start paying off your existing debt.

Budgeting helps you achieve goals

Whether it is putting money aside for emergencies, a vacation or school fees, a budget helps you devote resources to those things that you determine are most important.

Budgeting helps improve habits

If you spend more than you earn, you will drain your savings. And if it continues, you will take on debt.

By measuring how you spend your money, you will know for sure whether you’re headed for trouble, and you can take the steps necessary to improve your habits.

Amana Capital realizes that while it might sound easy to make a budget, following and sticking to it is one of the most common problem that most people face.

It is for this reason that Amana Capital has come up with 7 tips to help you stick to your budget.

The budgeting tool by Amana Capital stresses on the need for the 50:30:20 budget rule which is based upon the differentiation between spending on things you need (the 50 percent) and spending on things you want (the 30 percent).
