Everyone should plan their expenses by having a budget. A budget is a simple financial plan
that helps individual or family spending. Budgeting allows you to track your monthly expenditures so that you can plan key savings strategies for important short and long term goals. You will know how much you earn and how much you spend and the balance available you can save. There is no limit that you should save this much per month. You yourself set some target to save per month and follow it consistently.

Savings might be in any form, like depositing in Bank, investing in shares, or FD, etc., Savings such as putting a set amount of money into a Bank each month; saving the income of one family member while living off another member's income; or putting any "bonus" or non-regular income into a savings account instead of spending it are really worth savings. For many people, it's difficult to exercise self-control. The most frequently cited savings goals are retirement, emergencies, children's education , saving for one's own education, and saving for a house .

In each and every family there should be some sort of savings. So that you can run without any problems in the case of any emergency. The savings will be useful in the case of emergencies like health problems, job loss, company lay off, etc.

For secured savings invest in shares, mutual funds, bonds etc., It is better to take insurances like life insurance, accident insurance and health insurance.

Be disciplined about your extra saving. Decide on a percentage or monthly amount, then stick to it. The easiest way to maintain your saving strategy is to opt for a stop order, which transfers money directly from your bank account and into your chosen savings vehicle.

If you’ve been investing and saving extra for several years but your strategy hasn’t worked, take a close look at where you’ve invested. If there are any funds which have performed poorly from the start, consider switching your money into another fund.

Spread your income in various forms like shares, property, bonds and perform in different ways, depending on market conditions and economic trends. It’s impossible for even the so called experts to say in advance with absolute certainty which ones will do well. That’s why it’s essential to work on a spread of investments.
