Many people identify that their biggest barrier to saving money each month is themselves. If you believe that this is the main reason why you can’t seem to save any money, listed below are some strategies and tips to try.
- Ask your bank remove access to your savings account from your bank card and your online banking. In case you have to go to the bank to get the money out, you are going to be less likely to spend it. Entering the bank to make a withdrawal will provide you with more time to think about a purchase before going ahead with it.
- If you live with an individual, and your partner is, of course, a better saver than you are, take into consideration giving your partner some power over your savings. This can make it hard for you to spend your money.
- Invest your money in an investment that you can not withdrawal from. It will commonly take a number of days for you to get your money free from an investment company. That should provide you with extra time to think about your decision to spend this money. Your investment advisor or investment representative may ask you why you are withdrawing the money, this could create another barrier to keep your money safe.
- Tracking your spending is the best way to recognize areas that you will save money. When it’s written out, many people are surprised on how much they spend and the areas where they can cut back.
