A critical part of your budget is the net income or the amount of money left after you subtract your expenses from your income.

Always try to think outside the box and think about what problems you can solve for people. This will result in earnings.


Being good with money is about more than just making ends meet. You don’t have to be an expert in the personal finance or have a big investment portfolio to be financially secure. It is important to understand the basics of financial planning

You don’t need a higher-paying job or a windfall from a relative to improve your personal finances. For many people, better money management is all it takes to reduce their spending, improve their ability to invest and save, and achieve financial goals that once seemed impossible.

Life is much easier when you have good financial skills. How you spend your money impacts your credit score and the amount of debt you end up carrying.

If you’re struggling with money management issues such as living paycheck to paycheck despite making more than enough money, then here are some tips to improve your financial habits.

When you’re faced with a spending decision, especially a large purchase decision, don’t just assume you can afford something. Confirm that you can actually afford it and that you haven’t already committed those funds to another expense.

  1. Set up a budget

Many people don’t budget because they don’t want to go through what they think will be a boring process of listing out expenses, adding up numbers, and making sure everything lines up. If you’re bad with money, you don’t have room for excuses with budgeting.

  1. Know your financial goals

A financial goal is any plan you have for your money. You can have short-term and long-term goals. Your goals should give you focus and keep you accountable, no matter how long they take to make happen.

  1. Sell items you don’t need

Get rid of things you don’t need in the house and use the cash for an emergency fund or invest in a side business. At any given time during the month, you should have an idea of how much money you’re able to spend, considering any expenses you have left to pay.

  1. Increase your income

Increasing your income allows you to pay off your debts faster, save more, and invest more. It can greatly accelerate the time it takes for you to accomplish your financial goals much more so than if you were just solely focused on reducing your expenses.

  1. Live below your means

To live below your means, you must not spend more money than you earn. So, if you spend less or equal to the amount of money you make each month from your job and other sources of income, you’re below your means

  1. Save for leaky expenses

It’s often said that it’s never too late to start saving for retirement. That may be true (technically), but the sooner you start, the better off you’ll likely be during your retirement years. Always save at least 3-6 months of your salary if you can. This will make you sleep better at night.

  1. Be creative

A critical part of your budget is the net income or the amount of money left after you subtract your expenses from your income. Always try to think outside the box and think about what problems you can solve for people. This will result in earnings.

  1. Have the right mindset

When it comes to improving your personal finances your money mindset is a critical foundational piece. Your goals may revolve around becoming debt-free, saving money, investing, and getting to 7 figures in savings but without the right financial mindset, it will be really difficult to accomplish.
