HOW TO START SAVING, IF YOU WANT TO INVEST


Between now and the end of your income-earning era, a lot can and will happen. You might lose our job(s), witness an appraisal or a pay cut, move or become disabled and unable to work. Strategising about the income you earn now to create plans for your future is one of the best things that you can do with your hard-earned money.

Saving means taking a break from the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle or allowing yourself for a big purchase down the road, like a vacation, vehicle, or house. Surprisingly, living paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, isn't something that happens to just those individuals with lower incomes, but to anyone unable to create a budget and follow it, and to make savings goals and reach them.
