Staying Smart With Your Money In 2018


Money management can be a difficult task for even the most level headed of people, and with the increase of prices and also scams that can trick us into spending all of our hard earned cash away, it’s become increasingly difficult to keep an eye on our spending. As much as we’d hate to believe it, money does make the world turn around when it comes to keeping our homes running, taking care of our families, and becoming financially stable. Here are some tips on how you can stay smart with your money in 2018.

Check, double check, and then check again

One of the major reasons that people are losing their money in this day and age is because of companies that manage to trick us into spending our money with them. While the company might not necessarily be ‘scamming’ you, they can appear to offer more than what you’re paying for, and lead you on to thinking it’s a wise spend. Make sure that whenever you’re purchasing a new product or service (especially online) that you’re checking out the company, reviews, and also social media comments before spending any money with them. This will prevent you from regretting purchases and being left out of pocket.

Consider investment

A really smart move to take with your money is investment, and you should definitely consider some sort of investment in your lifetime. Whether it be in property for you to live out your days in, or whether you’re interested in investing in businesses, you need to make sure that you’re making the right decision. You should always make sure that the investment you’re making is going to be worth your time and money. Casey research reviews give tactical information on wise investments, so that you can ensure you’re not buying into something that you won’t later benefit from or even worse, lose out on your money.

Be smart with savings

If you’re not already, you should begin some sort of saving scheme for you to fall back if times become tough financially. A really easy way to save is by rounding up each spend to the nearest pound or dollar (or whatever your currency is) and putting it away. So, if you spend £5.49, the 51p that you’d use to round it up to £6 would go into a savings account. Many bank accounts offer this service, so check with yours to see if you can begin saving. Your money will mount up faster than you think!

Take on extra work if needed

Finally, no matter how hard you try to keep track of money, sometimes things simply go wrong. Items need repairing, you have medical bills, among many other reasons for expenditure. The truth is that there is no ‘get rich quick’ scheme that you can take on, so it might be time to take on some extra work until your head is back above water.

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14..

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice...
