How to Embrace Mindful Money Spendings

1. Save Before You Spend

Whenever you get paid or receive any personal money into your bank account, the first thing to do is save 10% of the money. It doesn't matter how fat or small the money is or whether you're a low-income or high-income earner.

The overall ideas is to make sure you put some money away as savings. However, if you find it difficult to save, you can turn ON automatic savings in your bank app.

Many banks, including Fintechs like Kudabank, OPay and PalmPay allows these features within their apps. For instance, Kuda Bank App's "Spend + Save" features let you save money automatically every time you send/transfer money.

2. Create A Budget

Budget helps you allocates money to different bills you pays every month's end. With this, you know exactly how much you spend and how much you need to spend. In addition, Budgeting will also helps you to meet financial goals and prepare for emergencies.

3. Stop Impulse Buying

Unless it's an Emergency, if it's not in your Budget, it can actually wait. Turn Off alerts/notifications from websites, app and social media pages that tempt you to spend unnecessarily.

In addition, block friends who initiates you to unplanned spendings. If you have that friend who always call you to hang out and overspend, it's time to rethink the friendship.

However, if you're the kind of person who loves "Owanbe" or "Partying," you can create a "Pocket Account" for enjoyment on your bank app. This will never let you spend more than the amount you saved in the pocket for enjoyment.

4. Stay Focused

Embrace mindful money spendings and watch your money goals come to Life. However, if you can't control yourself, just review your 2023 money spending report, that will get you back to your senses and keep you grounded.
