How to manage your budget in crisis

Every month, we get amount of money to be managed from salary or any other sources, and before we spend it, it would be better for you if you could do some of tips below:

1. Put your money into different posts, such as:

2. Save about 5%-10% of the total budget into the saving account that especially opened only for saving. You could not draw it as easy as you want and it is a must. It would be better if you could save it more.

3. Put the rest of it in your daily account and you could take it if only you need it

4. Avoid unnecessary spending. Don't get easily tempted by discount offering from any shopping malls or any others.

When you had extra money (after your monthly payments, saving etc) then maybe you could do some shops.
