Saving. Staying on budget. These are certainly not the most exciting terms in the world. Like so many other people, does staying on budget deeply annoy or exasperate you?
The best way to make it easier is to come up with a goal you want to achieve.
Your financial goal will seem more tangible, and you can enjoy looking forward to it.
Here are 4 tips to help you stay focused on your goal
1. Stick a picture of the item you want on the ceiling above your bed. Every night it will remind you how much you want it.
2. Set an alarm on your phone linked to your project. For example, the song you hope to play one day on the guitar or piano you're dreaming of.
3. Fill a notebook with ideas and inspiration for your new bedroom furniture or decor.
4. Once a day or week, take time out to research, look at photos or read up on the trip you want to take.
How about you? Do you have a helpful tip to stay on target in your savings plan?
