Tips To Help You Establish Permanent Control Over Your Finances

This article has been written by Todd McCullough, an independent blogger and finance researcher. He represents the financial loan company wonga.ca by producing guest posts full of useful money saving and organisation information for various websites.

The tips below are a series of finance and lifestyle changes you can implement that over time will allow you adopt a better approach to your personal finances. If you remain disciplined and committed to improving your situation you will find that you can develop complete control over your financial siuation, including a contingency plan for any surprise payments you may have to make at different points in your life. So take the advice below to heart and start living a life free of debt concern.

Utilise a direct deposit banking account.



This is one of the easiest ways to develop a savings account. The basic principle is to set up an account that automatically garnishes your bank account payments by a certain percentage, this percentage is then transferred into a separate savings account. Once this process has been set up it becomes automatic meaning you can forget all about it. You then begin living a lifestyle based off your remaining funds whilst slowly building your savings on autopilot. You will often find that banks are very eager to convince you to take on such an account, in the process certain banks may even be willing to waive their monthly account fees or offer some other kind of advantage or rewards, so shop around for the most advantageous offer you can find.

Adopt a frugal mindset.



Apply this mindset to every aspect of your expenditures. Consider owning a motorcycle instead of your car to reduce insurance and running costs for example, do your shopping online so you can be sure you're seeking out the most cost effective prices for your groceries, or elect to simply drink more tap water than store bought sugary drinks. There are endless avenues in which you can probably save some of your cash by making small changes. Although each change may not seems like much but when combined together, saving a pound here and there can quickly amount to a tangible difference in your overall budgeting.

Use cards that reward but don't punish.



It's common knowledge that using a credit card comes with inherent risks, what with the ease of which you can become over withdrawn without any warning and the substantial late payment penalty fees they impose upon you if you run foul of their strict deadline dates for these withdrawal repayments. So why not consider electing for a card that offers you rewards instead of punishments? Ditch the credit card and instead take advantage of discount and loyalty cards that are offered by a significant number of larger stores. You can make substantial savings through continued use of such offers.

Look for bonuses and incentives in the work place.



If you're serious about obtaining a firmer grasp over your finances then apply this enthusiasm and motivation to your work place. Seek out the opportunities for increased responsibility and promotion. Aim to meet the difficult deadlines and let your hunger for incentives become known. It won't be long before your positive attitude and hard work begins to pay off financially.
