Budgeting Made Simple with PowerWallet

Planning your next vacation or big purchase requires two things: money and a budget. Without a budget, chances are you won’t achieve your financial goals. The “B” word can tend to stress people out, leaving some people not even wanting to take the time to sit down and really set one in the first place.

Instead of referring to it as a budget, the team at PowerWallet calls a budget a “plan” and here are easy tips to make budgeting with PowerWallet’s sophisticated and easy-to-use system simple!

1. Give yourself 3 to 4 months – Budgets take time to implement so make sure to give yourself time to cut costs, save more money and figure out where you are going wrong and where you can improve in your daily personal financial habits.

2. Be honest & open with your significant other – If you are married, make sure both you and your spouse know how much income you have, how much your expenses cost you each month and be completely honest. Financial infidelity is one of the top reasons people fail to follow their budget and even worse, it may lead to divorce.

3. Discipline yourself with alerts – PowerWallet helps you stay in line with your budget and remain disciplined with spending alerts and bill pay reminders, this way, you don’t have to take as much time to review your budget all the time.  With our friendly bill pay reminders, available via email or text, you won’t have to worry about forgetting another bill or paying another late fee ever again.

4. Cut costs – Most people are afraid to budget because they don’t want to be stressed out with the harsh reality of how much they make versus how much they spend. Cut costs wherever you can with PowerWallet’s simple daily deals and customized coupons.  Your budget will be easier to manage and induce less stress on you if you are living within your means! The best part about PowerWallet’s coupons is that they are customized based on your spending history and geographical location, that way you will get offered coupons that you will actually care about and use.
