How to Plan Your Budget When You are in Financial CrisisAlicia is a financial tech writer from the UK, and is guest posting today with interesting budget ideas that you may use in dealing with a financial crisis.

 

An unexpected and unavoidable financial crisis can be difficult for anyone to overcome, especially when income levels are low and debt levels are very high. If you are facing such a situation in your life then it is time to plan and evaluate the situation, and create a budget plan to handle your financial crisis. Here are a few steps that help you to create an effective budget plan when you are in financial crisis:

Step 1: Determine your expenses; this will enable you to know how much you are spending every month and where your income is going. Writing down all your expenses and analysing your spending habits is a good to start in creating an efficient budget plan. Start with your monthly income and check for any opportunity to save your money by trimming unwanted expenses; this could help you save lot of your money.

Step 2: Analyse your spending and trim expenses especially whilst in the midst of financial crisis, this means eliminating all the unnecessary expenses. If you have any monthly financial obligations such as paying off your mortgage, auto loan and so on then allocate your income to fund those expenses, don’t delay any monthly bills as they could increase due to late fees.

Step 3: Another important step you can take when you are in financial crisis is to reduce your utility or monthly bills.  Make a list of fixed and variable costs in your budget plan; this is how you can save some money wherever possible.

Step 4: Your savings account is very useful to resolve your emergency situation; it is very difficult to save money from your income while in financial crisis. Consider payday loans which are the short-term loans that are secured against the borrower’s next pay cheque, they don’t require any collateral and even a person with bad credit can avail urgent cash to resolve their financial emergency.

Step 5: If you could develop an efficient budget plan that suits your lifestyle then it is just a good idea to save some money. Adjust your plan if your income is not balanced with your regular expenses, review your budget frequently and find the easiest way to stick to your budget plan. Find an extra source of income if you cannot fund your basic needs through just a single income. There are plenty ways you can earn some money with a part time job.

  1. It probably would be important to note that the crisis would probably not be as bad if you did these things before you hit crisis mode. Great action plan though.

    making a list of what you should buy for the week is great when you are budgeting. Before you buy anything, you should ask yourself first if you need it or you want it. Weigh this first and know the difference between “wants and needs”
