Best Financial Management For students

It may not be affecting you directly, but the recent economic turbulence (which is supposedly heading for disaster) is just a example of what you may be facing the day you graduate and enter the job market. And, as those affected by the current economic crisis may tell you, now is probably the time to look at how you spend your money and to be more critical on those decisions you make which could affect the course of the rest of your life. Take debt for example, something which seems fine initially because you have a job (hopefully) and therefore will be able to afford the monthly installments. But did you consider the other things you might be spending on which will add to your monthly expenses? Probably not.

The following will serve as a basic blueprint of financial management for students - those still at school and those at college or university.

Create A Balance Sheet

Now is the best time to explore the basics of financial management. First and foremost is the use of a balance sheet detailing the various incomes and putting them in contrast with the various expenses. Which one is greater? Are you already in debt?

Oddly enough, most people recoil in shock when they put things down on paper for the very simple reason that spending is more of a continuous thing that a once off payment. Would you pay $8, 000 for a car this minute? No, probably not. Would you pay a monthly installment of $100 for the same car right now? It's the same way with spending: a myriad of little things accumulating over a period of time which could put you in an awkward position.
What You Need vs. What You Want

The bliss about being a student is that those things you need to spend money on are often less than those things you want to spend money on. But, when work starts and the responsibilities start mounting, these two soon switch around leaving many people unprepared for the sudden change. Along with your balance sheet, make a list of things you really need like housing, food, travel expenses, medical expenses, etc.

This is probably one of the last things you want to hear, but budgeting could set you on the road to riches faster than you think. This can be explained with the maxim: It takes money to make money. Saving now will give you that financial edge which could take years to reach before you are in a position to invest in those opportunities which capable of adding multiple digits to your bank balance.
