2. Go for a budget
Starting this women's day set yourself a budget. It can be of weekly, monthly or quarterly. Make sure that you follow this budget. Include all your possible expenditures and income.
3. Minimise expenditure
Cut down unwanted expenditures. Minimise shoppings and eating outs. Most of the time, we tend to spend money without thinking.
Be vigilant about unnecessary expenditures.
4. Save money
Open a monthly account for saving money. While setting up a budget, you should consider the saving option. This money can be invested in high-yielding options. There are many schemes by banks, where women are entitled to get more returns.
5. Save for emergency
