The 50/15/5 rule for multiple financial goals

The 50/15/5 rule for multiple financial goals
  • 50% of your income goes toward essential expenses: rent, bills, minimum debt payments.
  • 15% percent goes to retirement savings. They also suggest you increase this by 1% each year.
  • 5% goes toward unexpected monthly expenses or building an emergency fund.

What you do with the rest of the money it’s up to you.

IDEAS

Budgets are necessary for running any business efficiently and effectively.

  • Budget Development Process. Assumptions related to projected sales, trends, cost trends, and the overall economic outlook is established for the upcoming period. The budget is then published and outlines the standards and procedures used to develop it. The master budget includes forecasts of cash inflows and outflows, budgeted financial statements, and an overall financing plan.
  • Static Vs. Flexible Budgets. A static budget remains unchanged over the life of the budget. A flexible budget has a relational value to certain variables, such as sales levels, production levels, or other economic factors.
The Envelope System

The Envelope system is a way to track your variable expenses like food, entertainment, and drinks.

This method, preferably used weekly, allocates a certain amount in each category in labeled envelopes (food, drinks, movies, etc.). Once the envelope is empty, you are done spending in that category.
