I’ve been a victim of this as I always spend more than 60% of my money and I kept on wondering what the issue was that before the end of the month, I won’t be able to boast of having a substantial amount of money that I can save just in-case of any emergency.

The best thing you can do is to try to maintain a lifestyle that you can afford and not the other way round. Also, it’s not a must you lend people money that’s why you need to have a monthly budget for both income and expenditure.

Knowing when and how to stop spending money can be tricky when you're stressed about exams and deadlines. But keeping a loose budget of your monthly outgoings is a great way to keep track of where your money is going and find out which habits you need to break.

2. Lending Money Out Money That You Can’t Afford.

As good as it may seem like lending money to families, it’s important to know that, lending out money that you can afford to lose is the main point. Just in-case the person fails to pay back your money. The best bet is to keep your money to yourself or probably invest it in a safe and trusted investment.

3. Buying What You Don’t Need.

Human wants are insatiable and that’s why you need to set a goal for yourself to only buy what you needs and not what you want. This this method, you will be able to save more money.
