What to do with your BONUS?

Ready To Be Rich blogger and "Ready to Be Rich Guide to Investing" author Fitz Gerard Villafuerte shared some tips on how to use and save the bonuses that we will get this season and one of them is to determine expending habit.

In his book, you'll learn how to spend wisely without sacrificing you saving. By following the equation Income minus Savings equals Expenses, you'll get to practice saving and eventually making it as a habit.

Villafuerte listed down 6 tips on how to save now and make your future a brighter one. As early as now, it is good to (1) Make saving a habit. This way, if you are planning to have "saving" as part of your New Year's Resolution, you've already adjusted yourself to your spending habit.

Villafuerte suggested this since you are saving for your future, it is also nice to know that the money you are saving isn't for some hospital emergency or sickness. Actually, it also a great idea that you also get a (4) Life insurance to make sure that your future is secured. Once everything is secured, think again, and make sure that you have (5) Emergency Fund. Villafuerte insisted that by "Emergency" means something that is life and death thing, not shopping of some sort. This money can also be used if you lose you job, that's why he is suggesting that you have your Emergency Funf sic times bigger than you monthly expenses. And lastly, (6) invest. It still best that you have a rotating money to keep everything in order.

"These things should be done in order, definitely no skipping," Villafuerte pointed out as he concluded.
