Patience is An Important Virtue When it Comes to Saving

By Carlos Onyango / August 21, 2019




It takes a lot of sacrifices to save money, and patience is what will determine whether your saving journey is a success or a failure.

When it comes to making savings, patience is a virtue and a very important aspect of showing your financial discipline.

You will have to wait longer if you want to save more and reap the highest amount.

Some researchers say that the key to vigilant saving comes from inherent patience that what you’ll have later will be more beneficial than what you have now.

Focusing on the long wait to accumulate savings can feel overwhelming. Focusing on the returns on your savings and investments, however, can be motivating.

Your savings option will also be an important factor when you want to save more and for longer.

Here are some ways to help save your money and practice patience:

  • Automate your savings.

Automating your saving process will most certainly help you avoid using your money and enhance your patience. You will have to wait for the set period for you to get hold of your money since the saving option will bar you from accessing it before the due time. “Out of sight, out of mind.”

  • Develop a waiting rule

Develop a waiting rule where you will have a set time in order to decide whether to purchase something or not. For example, if you want to buy a television set, set a 30-day period. You will have a lot of time to decide whether you really need the TV set or not, or whether you need to go for a cheaper one or an expensive one.

The rule should be consistent, if it is 30 days, stick to 30 days!

  • Know where you waste most of your money

Always try to determine the things you spend most of your money on and avoid the unnecessary ones. Avoid spending money on small things like snacks. You might find out that you spend even up to 1000 shillings just on buying things along the road.

After evaluating your spending habits, you will find extra cash each month that could be reassigned from waste to savings.

  • Avoid debts

You will not save if you are prone to borrowing and you have creditors all over your neck. Clear your debts first and then start saving later.

Having debts will just make you impatient as you will be focusing your earnings on paying debts other than making savings. You might stop saving because you are drowning in debts, so avoid debts.  

  • Commit yourself

Before you start to save money, you should be sure of what you are getting yourself into. This is committing yourself. Just vow that no matter what happens, you will stick to your savings plan.

It is a sacrifice you are making. Stick to it.
