Even with the pandemic, it is good to have your finances organized via these steps;
Step 1: Gather Your Financial Documents
Have all your financial documents including your online and offline statements. They include:
- The utility statement for gas, electricity or water, and so on.
- The credit card financial statements.
- The bills statements for cable, Wi-Fi, or mobile phone statements.
- Other expenditures such as kid’s sports, subscriptions, or memberships.
You can come up with a table where you can fill in the exact money spent and what you saved as per the financial statements.
Step 2: Assess the Amount You Owe Others
After you have organized your financial statements, you need to have the debts evaluated. The task may be involved, but this is the way to go to have the debts settled. You can use a snowball method to have the debts reduced from the smallest to the largest.
Step 3: Come up With a Financial Plan
Get a good and reliable budgeting model to use based on your salary and expenditures. Mint software is an automated app that helps in budget customization.
