How does Money Management work?
You’re already doing it! Everyone manages there money simply by making decisions about how much to spend on what, when to do it and which methods to use. The question is how wise or poor are your decisions. In other words, are your decisions around money leading you to financial freedom or to a limited retirement?
Essentially, we help you to use wise money management strategies. No shortcuts and no cheating.
Using time-tested money principles, such as using a spending plan and saving to purchase and invest, means you’ll have the tools to reach your financial goals with reduced stress and long-term success.
Say goodbye to the phrase, “Where did my money go?!”
Why is this so important?
When you manage your money wisely, you’re in control of your money instead of being at its mercy. You get to intentionally create the secure financial future you want AND live the lifestyle you want.
For you to achieve this, you’ll need to know where you are now, where you want to go, and how to get there. When you know your expenses and income, make a plan for how much to spend in each expense category and be consistent with that plan month after month, you intentionally tell your money where you want to go…
And your money has no choice, but to listen.
Where does Futurebound come in?
Use our money management tool, Annual Spending Plan, to give you a strong financial foundation. Using the instructions and tutorials in the Excel spreadsheet, you’ll complete your very own zero-sum budget.
This style of budgeting gives you the ability to decide what to do with your money before you get it, reducing the chance you’ll make an emotional spending decision… or worse, no intentional decision at all. You’ll make a decision for every dollar, so each dollar is doing their job.
If you prefer to have multiple bank accounts for different types of spending (the buckets system), use the Account Buckets tab in the Annual Spending Plan to decide how many accounts to have and how much needs to be automatically transferred over each week, fortnight or month.
Automate your plan
Use our Annual Spending Plan to calculate how much each automatic transfer between accounts and direct debits to pay bills should be according to the amount you identified in your spending plan.
It’s as close to set it and forget it you can get when it comes to managing your money.
