Want to Buy What You Desire on Payday? Hold On, There are Things to Check First

Gajian Langsung Mau Beli Barang Idaman? Tahan Dulu, Ada yang Perlu Dicek Want to Buy What You Desire on Payday? Hold On, There Are Things to Check First

The results of a month's hard work can be enjoyed on payday. It is natural to want to buy what you desire when you receive your salary. But, don't buy it right away. There are 3 important things you need to check first.

What to Do or Check on Payday

1. Have you set aside money for monthly bill payments?

This is very important, Jagoans. Don't forget to pay all kinds of monthly bills. There are electricity, water and internet bills. There may be other types of bills to pay, depending on each person's needs. Those who have children, for example, have to pay their children’s tuition fees.

Make sure not to use half of your salary to buy what you desire upfront. Make sure you don’t ignore your bills. Later you may have to deal with consequences such as temporary suspension and late payment fees.

2. Don't forget that there are daily needs

In addition to monthly bills, there are daily needs that need to be taken into account. If you have already spent your salary to buy what you desire, you may end up eating instant noodles everyday.

Apart from food and water, other daily needs can include transportation, healthcare and sanitation. So, before buying that thing you want, remember you have to meet your daily needs first.

3. Savings are no less important

One more thing you need to check is about savings. Before spending money on something you like, it’s important to set aside money for savings first. It is recommended that everyone has emergency savings and retirement savings.

Do you have any financial goals you want to achieve? For example, you want to get married, buy a house, etc. If yes, then don't rush to buy what you desire as soon as payday arrives, Jagoans. First, set aside money for all your financial goals. Achieving financial goals is easier with Moneyfesting. Find out more about Moneyfesting in this article.
