Hi Aneekalam,

The key to controlling expenditure is monitoring your income and your expenses on a monthly basis. Expenses are to of two kinds, fixed and variable. Fixed expenses are ones which cannot be avoided like the phone bills, credit card bills or electricity bills. While you are budgeting, try to cut down the variable expenses. After the month is over analyze the difference between the budget that you have prepared and the amount you have actually spent. In the following month cut down the expenses that are damaging your budget plan.
Looking forward to a debt-free life.

Are you single or married? If single then this is not a serious issue but if you are married then surely it has to be addressed.

1. Always go for outings only when you have planned all the things b4hand .
2.Make sure you list all the things b4 you not buy if you haven't included in your list.
3. try to prepare all the food items at your home only do not go for purchasing those at stores.

these are some of the tips.

keep us informed.

One good way to try to stop this type of behavior is to set aside money in a savings account. Put so much there as soon as you get paid and do not touch it. Why I suggest a savings is you would actually have to go in the bank and get the money out, as long as you do not apply for a debit card with the account.
After a few months of this you will see your money starting to add up and it may be even easier to save. SOmetimes when we over spend we say next time I will not do that and save a little. Then the process repeats. You have got to make that first start and take the right steps. Only you can save yourself.

Aneekalam ,

you are single then make sure you try to arrange one party at your home and (I bet it will a good investment which you won't repent.) invite all your friends who have the similar problem as that of you.No saving attitude.I will send you a free video of 30 minutes where it is explained why it is necessary to save at an early age.
If you are interested then just PM me.Surely it will solve most of yours and your colleagues problems about money management. its available free so no need to worry.

keep us informed.

I would say if you earn one dollar, spend 60 cents and save 40 cents for rainy day. This way if there is any emergency expenses, you need not rely on payday loans or fast cash loans.

The main thing is: You need to save - married or not married. If you are responsible towards yourself and towards others too, you will find ways to save money on your own. I'm sure you know about putting money aside in a savings account. If you know you are way too expensive and spend more than wanted, you also know that you need to STOP. No one can tell you how to save your own money except you. Nothing in this world comes for free, everything is hard earned. If you don't learn now, maybe you will if you fall in to a situation when you need the cash badly and don't have any then. But, I will sincerely hope that you don't have to wait till then and good sense will prevail Smile

I think you should spend money for useful work. Unless you do not have need ,you do not spend money. Without need you must not spend money.
I suggest you that . If you control your expenditure,you make your monthly diagram . For Example Food.....Rs per month, travel...Rs per month, other expenditures.
You make your diagram than you control your expenditures.
Thank you!

I am going to tell about how to control our expenditures. I like your question Aneekalam. In our running life controlling expenditure is very important. We control expenditures in different ways.
I find out the main reason of expenditure. Some time we expend money without thinking, without planning. If you want to control expenditure, you have to do frugality. You should become economical person. Don’t mind, if you couldn’t do that. I have solution.
One day you write on the sheet how money you expend in year. Than according to you how many rupeese spend in year count and write down on page . Than divvied that money in different activity related to you your family. Like food, travel, others, education etc. Than you can control your expenditure.
Lastly I suggest you expend money with control.

There are many way to control our expenditure. And this is good question. I have many way to control expenditure. If you keep the my ideas ,you will control your expenditure.
First of all you collect all your needs. Than you sort that important and unimportant. Later you select most important . Than carefully expend money only for that.
Second one is if you have need,you can expend. But without need do not expend money. Always expend money with good planning, good thinking.
You should expend money with good think. If you have daughter or son , you tell him how important the money is! Give him good thought about money.
