6 Steps Towards Building A Better Financial Tomorrow

  (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy)

Money worries are common for all of us, especially when it comes to looking at the future. You don’t want to be struggling to live when you reach retirement age, so it is important to put steps in place now. Here are six steps that could be considered essential, ensuring you have a secure financial future ahead, for you and your family.

1. Stop spending money

We don’t mean stop spending money entirely, that would be ridiculous. However, there are sure to be things you spend your hard-earned cash on each month that couldn’t be considered necessities. Yes, we all need a treat once in a while, but be honest, do you really need to buy another pair of shoes this month? Probably not.

2. Live below your means

In basic terms, you need to track where your money is going each month. If you find you are spending more than you are earning, you need to cut back. Don’t know where to start? Well, here are 101 ways to save money at home. Readers of our site know that being frugal pays, and you will find yourself with more money to put into your savings account when you make some simple lifestyle changes.

3. Pay into a retirement fund

You should already be saving money, but have a separate pot for your retirement. Your employer may already have a pension plan in place, so make extra contributions into it when you can. Alternatively, contribute to a private pension scheme. This is a tax-efficient way to save for your retirement, so if you don’t have a pension plan set up, start looking for something today.

4. Ask for a promotion

If you aren’t earning enough money at work, then it may be time to opt for a career change or to ask for a promotion. You may need to attain new qualifications to reach those higher ranks, but you can do these online or at night school if your employer can’t give you time off work during the day. Qualifications such as this mba in finance online degree will give you a huge step up in your career, and will increase your employability should you look for work elsewhere.

5. Get out of debt

It’s easy to fall into debt, and we have given you some of the reasons why here. However, you should do all you can to pay off your debts as soon as it is feasibly possible. It’s a good idea to find a lower interest alternative, and amalgamate your debts into one easier to pay back monthly payment. You want money to spend on yourself when you retire, and not to a greedy bank or credit company with exorbitant interest rates.

6. Think about your family

You want the best for your loved ones, so you need to know they will be protected should the worst happen to you. As well as building up a nest egg that they can dip into, you should also consider taking out a decent life insurance policy that will accumulate in value over time. Of course, we hope you will be around for a long time to enjoy the benefits of retirement, but there is no harm in taking precautions to protect the future of the people around you.

Final thought

We hope our advice helped, so now that you have taken note of what we have said, what are you waiting for? Start putting some of these things into practice today, ensuring you and your family will have a better tomorrow.

My Second Week of Nutrisystem #NSNation #ad

Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 3 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

(photo credit)

Last week was my second full week of Nutrisystem and I wanted to give an update on my progress thus far. I am loving the Nutrisystem plan and excited that I can now add PowerFuels and SmartCarbs into the mix of things! 

Aside from the delicious Nutrisystem meals that I am being provided, I get to add in 3 PowerFuels and 1 SmarCarb each day. In addition, I eat at least 4 servings of veggies AND I get to have a snack/dessert at night! Any diet program that allows you to have dessert is a winner in my book! At this point, Nutrisystem also wants you to start adding in your own Flex Meals. These are meals you make on your own using easy Nutrisystem guidelines—to help teach you healthy habits so you can maintain your weight loss after you reach your goal. I love how Nutrisystem prepares you for after you are done with the program. This is a key factor to me! 

This past week I had 2 Flex Meals. Hubby and I attended a conference through our church and had to eat out 2 times over the weekend. I feel that I did pretty well! I had mixed veggies, a salad, 3 meatballs and just a little bit of pasta. I felt like it was right on point with what I would have received in Nutrisystem entree and I feel great about my choice. The next morning we had breakfast out and I chose 1 sauage patty, some scrambled eggs and 1 pancake. While I didn't know the exact calorie count of the items, I feel good about my choice. It is all about moderation as well and I love how the Flex Meals prepares you for that. 

Now you may be asking yourself, "What is the difference between this part of the Nutrisystem plan and the Turbo Takeoff?" If you remember from my post HERE, I explained how Turbo Takeoff is really like a bootcamp for your body to prepare you for what is to come. With Turbo Takeoff, you only eat what is in your box. With this part of the plan, I can add in my own grocery additions in the form of SmartCarbs and PowerFuels. 

What are PowerFuels and SmartCarbs and how do they play a role in the Nutrisystem plan? Nutrisystem meals and snacks were created with the optimal balance of nutrients to keep you feeling satisfied as you lose weight; however, because it’s important for to learn—and practice—healthy eating habits so you can sustain your weight loss for life, it is important to add in these fresh grocery foods into your diet. 

SmartCarbs- The term “SmartCarbs” refers to a specific group of carbohydrates that are nutrient-rich and lower on the Glycemic Index. These carbs are packed with fiber so they are digested more slowly, helping you feel fuller longer. With the plan that I am on, you are allowed one SmartCarb per day. This will be items that are at least 80-120 calories per serving and 1 gram of fiber. A few of my favorite SmartCarbs include fruit, hummus and whole wheat toast or 100 calorie sandwich thins. 

PowerFuels- PowerFuels consist of high quality proteins that contain essential amino acids and healthy fats. It takes longer for your body to digest these foods, so they help you stay satisfied. One serving of PowerFuels should contain 80 - 120 calories and at least 5 gram of protein. Some of my favorite PowerFuels include 100 calorie Greek yogurt, cheese sticks, peanut butter and almonds and eggs. 

I am learning so much about myself through the help of Nutrisystem. I have been adding my walking routine back into the mix of things and it really does help me to focus on my goal even more. I feel so empowered and am so grateful for this opportunity to partner with Nutrisystem to focus on getting me back to a healthy weight and to feel better about myself. 

Now, while the scale may not be moving as fast as I would like for it to, it is moving at a healthy pace. I have lost 5 pounds so far. BUT, my clothes are already starting to fit much better! This is so exciting to me! It is all about getting healthy! I also feel that I tend to lose weight rather slowly so this can sometimes be discouraging. BUT, I am not discouraged because I feel great about what I am doing! Stay tuned as I continue this amazing journey and follow along with me! 

Stay tuned as I continue on my journey! Want to join me and lose weight and get healthy on NutrisystemGO HERE to see more details of this remarkable program. You can also check out The Leaf by Nutrisystem where they share yummy recipes, success stories and more!
