Looking for tips on how to save money? Saving money now becomes a skill among mothers. It naturally becomes a must-have and is never an option.
A quality life does not mean living with a gold spoon in mouth. Summertime, in the Philippines for example, is one of the most money-demanding seasons.
Kids are free from school. They and their parents start to plan for the activities that can make them all busy. Eventually, a number of ideas come to mind— thoughts that range from swimming to shopping to playing to studying.
Parents carefully plan the bests for their kids along with the notion that they need to save enough cash to satisfy their loved ones’ cravings.
Here are the tips on how to make your summer excitingly special as you want it to be:
- Have a bucketlist of activities ahead of time. Planning the activities months before summertime can hugely guide you in your mental outlining as to the specific details of your most-wanted quality time with kids. After all, there is always a striking impact of planning and sticking to the plans. There can be a coordinated listing of the necessary activities including the elimination of the least-wanted engagements for the family. Of course, do not forget to equalize your plans with your income —- not too extravagant that can outweigh you living and budgeting later.
- Save ahead of time. How much money do you earn? Do not force things to happen if it means sacrificing your ‘normal’ life. You do not need to sacrifice you daily meals nor your bonding moments’ expenses on regular days for your opted summer vacation just to deposit pennies in your coin bank or bank account. Take note, you stick on to the list you made and just slice a little amount of it for your planned vacation. Again, let me tell you that you need not to force impossible things to happen. The accumulated amounts saved can do something for your family bonding moments when your kids are free.
- Teach your kids the value of hardwork (cause-effect). The children are not exempted from knowing the tips on how to save money. Time will come that they will live only by themselves without parents beside them. If you want to achieve something, you have to do something. Small piggy bank can be a helpful object that can help your kids appreciate the importance of not wasting cash for nothing.
- Choose ‘quality and quantity’ destinations and activities. Not all ‘cheaps’ are good. Expensive is not also good for your family if it means sinking your other needs. Just a little extra cash with an extra quality. Simply choose the comfort.
