There are many ways to reduce monthly expenses. One of them is by controlling what you buy during shopping, whether it's daily, weekly or monthly shopping.

Shopping Tips to Avoid Overspend and Reduce Monthly Expenses

There are several tips that you can immediately apply so you no longer overspend.

1. Make a shopping list for daily, weekly or monthly needs

Everyone certainly has daily needs that must be met regularly. Examples are cooking spices, toilet paper, fruit, vegetables, meat, and so on. However, shopping styles can be different. There are people who prefer to shop for what they need every day, some prefer to do it weekly or even monthly so they can do it all at once. No problem, as long as you make a shopping list according to your needs and only look at the list when shopping.

2. Not shopping for daily necessities? You can also make a list

Shopping has various purposes, not just to fulfill daily needs. For example, you shop to fulfill your needs during Ramadhan and Lebaran, fulfill your hobby, shop at the end of the month as a self-reward for the results of your hard work, shop every 3 months to help people (outside of zakat and alms) such as buying water purifiers for mosques and prayer mats for orphans so they can pray comfortably.

For all these purchases, you can also make a list. That way, it will be easier for you not to spend money to check out something outside your shopping list.

3. Open one or more separate accounts for shopping needs

Next, you can open a separate account for each type of shopping. If there are 5 shopping categories, do you have to create 5 different accounts? That's better. Don't worry, you can have multiple accounts without monthly admin fees. To find out how, continue reading until the end.

4. Carry out regular budgeting for every expense, including shopping

After having one or more separate accounts for shopping needs, it will be easier for you to allocate funds (budget) regularly. For example, once you receive your monthly salary, you can separate it for various needs.

Because you have created one or more separate accounts for shopping, the funds that have been budgeted will not be mixed with funds for paying monthly bills, building emergency funds, or other priority needs. Make sure you allocate your shopping budget according to needs, so that you don't waste all your money just for shopping. According to Islamic teachings, wasting money is prohibited.
