Managing your finances can feel overwhelming when you have lots of bills to pay and not earning enough from your current job. However, with some financial know-how and sticking to some basic principles, you can save more money to enable yourself to shop more (and responsibly).


Have a budget

Having a budget helps you to monitor your daily expenses. When you're able to see what goes in and out of your bank account, you might be surprised at how much you spend on a daily basis and that could be the prompt for you to start cutting down on unnecessary expenses.


Look out for cheap prices

Make the most out of your money when you shop. Compare prices between different stores, utilise coupons and discounts, and look out for cheaper alternatives if you can.


Save up for expensive items

Instead of accumulating debt and paying interest, save your money instead until you could purchase a pricy item you're eyeing for. When that happens, the item's price could have dropped and you might have discovered a cheaper alternative.


Limit your credit card swipes

Credit cards are an easy way to spend beyond your budget. Resist the urge to spend beyond your means and instead bring out limited cash whenever you're out and about.


Don't purchase anything you can't afford to pay

Are you eyeing an expensive item that costs RM1,000 but you only have RM700 in your bank account? Well, don't buy it! Purchasing beyond your means is a quick way to accumulate debt and land you in trouble.
