Is inflation impacting you financially? You're not alone.

In this article, we will discuss 5 Easy Steps to Save Money on a Budget!

Whether you are just starting out in your career or have 10 years of job experience, saving money is vital
for your long-term financial investments. When it comes to saving money, you can start small, and any
amount helps.

It may seem daunting to start putting away money if you’re on a tight budget, however,
with these 5 simple and easy steps, you could be well on your way to having an overflowing savings

Remember that saving money takes time, and each step will get you closer to your financial goals!

If you have debt, make sure to focus on the high-interest debt payments first while you save money to
minimize the amount of debt you owe.

Here are the 5 Easy Steps to Save Money:

  1. Set up a monthly (or per-paycheck) automatic transfer from your checking account to your
    savings account. 
  2. Cancel unnecessary subscriptions, whether it’s a streaming service you rarely watch or a
    magazine you never get around to reading. Then put that money toward savings.
  3. Calculate how much 10% of your after-tax income is. This is an ideal savings goal, but if you
    can’t manage that much, aim for 5%.
  4. Set up an app (or a notebook) to track all your spending and look for places to cut back.
  5. If you have a mortgage, schedule a mortgage review to see if your loan is still the best deal for
    you, or if it’s time to drop your mortgage insurance. 

Once you start one or more of these steps, you'll find that it'll become more manageable to set aside a certain amount of your monthly income.
