Everyone has their attitudes and beliefs about money. What do you remember about money when you were growing up? Are you puzzled by your spending patterns? Ever wonder about why you picked up some habits, not others?
We all have preferences when it comes to the way we handle money, and knowing yourself and understanding your unique money tendencies can go a long way to explain why you make certain money choices. Some of us spend on quality, others on quantity. Or we prefer to spend on experiences over things. There’s no right answer, only a scale that we tip one way or another. It’s just important not to swing too far either way. Here’s more on your unique tendencies with money.
The homes we grew up in had an immense influence on what we know and believe about money. We absorbed so much about money without realising it! Our parents, whānau and environment shaped what we believe, so it can be insightful to look back in order to move forward. A lot comes down to what we heard at home about money, but it also comes down to what we felt, too. Take a moment to reflect on what money was like growing up, and you’ll find some explanations for what you believe.
After growing up in different households, with varied work experiences and earning different amounts, we’d be surprised if you did, actually. (Did we mention that opposites attract?) Getting on the same page moneywise is one of the most important conversations you’ll have. Money talk can do great things for your relationship, especially if you find some shared goals. Here are tips for when you’re about to broach the subject, and for those times you can’t. It’s so worth it.. It’s so worth it.
When your money feels out of control, it can lead to many anxious moments. Making a plan for your spending and staying on track can help. It can also be insightful to look back on the money environment you grew up in, since as a child your parents communicated emotionally with you about money. Was it a calm vibe at home? Or more stressed? If you were raised in an anxious or unstable money home, this will influence your thinking today. Here’s more on your money household growing up.
Sometimes we just don’t want to know how we’re really tracking, so being in a bit of denial about our situation feels better and avoids stress and anxiety (in that moment). Money comes in, money goes out – as long as you’re not at zero, it’s okay, right? At some stage, however, you will reach a turning point financially – when you need to do something radically different with your money to reach an important life goal. We’re here for you! Here's how to stop procrastinating when it comes to money.
Debt has a way of sneaking up on us, whether it is a credit card balance or multiple Buy Now, Pay Later deals going on at a time. We may feel something’s not right, and believe it or not, even experience lower back pain just because of debt! The longer this goes on, the less we may want to see – it’s confronting to take a hard look at where you are moneywise. But like fire, you never want to let it get out of control as it can end up costing too much as time goes on. Here’s where to start when you are ready to tackle your debt.
It’s challenging to stay engaged with what’s happening with your money, but there are ways to track your spending. This is important, since getting ahead with money is essentially spending less than you earn and saving towards things you care about. There are different apps, but you can even simply write down everything for a few weeks. Tracking helps you create a spending plan (budget) and stick to it. Here’s more on money tracking.
There’s a funny thing that happens when you start earning or when you’ve just had a pay rise – you start buying new stuff, and it somehow becomes part of your regular expenses. That’s lifestyle creep at work. You may not look at your account often, or slip into overdraft even. But then you get to a turning point with your money. Having a spending plan (a.k.a. a budget) is key, but you’ll need to track your expenses first. Here’s more for when your money is slipping through your fingers each month.
After a tough day, you might find yourself impulsively buying something you didn’t plan to buy (but probably don’t need). Typically it’s stuff that makes us look better (clothing, shoes, make-up), feel better (a massage or a beer) or make life easier (kitchen gadgets). It’s not really the item that matters, it’s the feeling that goes with it – being in control and coping with the negative baggage from the day. The key to sorting this is to find ways to cope that don’t cost money. Here’s more on how to overcome overspending.
Our unique money tendencies go a long way to explaining what we choose to spend on. For instance, some of us spend on quality, others on quantity. Or we prefer to spend on experiences over things. There’s no right answer, only a scale that we tip one way or another. It can be truly insightful to understand yourself (and those you’re close to) – both to see your preferences and make adjustments to your spending plan if you need to. And if you need to make cuts, here’s how to keep your spending happy.
The short answer is probably in your unique money tendencies. But your question is also about spending too much, which many of us struggle with (1 in 5). We overspend when we cave in to social pressure, try to make a change to our lives or feel in control, or just because we’re disorganised with our money. The good thing is that there are good ways to sort each of these out, whether we are spending haphazardly or just because everyone else is. Here’s more on overcoming overspending.
You may be spending because you’re feeling FOMO (caving into social pressure), trying to change your life or feel in control, or simply because your money life is a bit disorganised and you’re spending haphazardly. Happily, we’ve got some ways to sort each of these out and keep you from overspending. If you’re spending more than you wanted to because you’re out with friends for drinks or an event, you can prep better with a plan. But if you’re spending to impress them, here’s how to skip it.
If you’re trying to cut back all your ‘wants’ in order to keep your spending to just your ‘needs’, it’s understandable if it leaves you feeling deprived. We get an emotional return each time we spend, so it’s important to not cut out the joy. If you go through what you spend money on, you can rate it 1-5, with 1 being spending that leaves you feeling terrible, while 5 leaves you the happiest. For anything low on the scale, cut away, but leave those 4s and 5s. Here’s more on happy spending.
To us, winning with money means meeting your needs now, as well as moving your finances forward so they grow and help you reach your long-term goals. We tend to spend money on things we can have right now – they feel more real. The future feels so far away. Luckily, long-term thinking is like a muscle, a superpower that can be strengthened by practicing. Here are some key tips to train yourself to think long term. Your future self will thank you!
It’s challenging to get motivated to save in itself. You need to find your ‘why’ – your reasons why you want to save. For many of us this means setting goals, which focus our money on reaching them. Whether they’re bigger goals, like saving for a house deposit, or even smaller ones, like replacing your laptop in a few months – you’ll need to set aside money, preferably automatically each time you’re paid in a separate account. Here’s help to set some goals to shoot for.
Don’t beat yourself up too much. Sometimes we all need to try stuff, to risk on a choice that may not work out. But if by mistakes you mean spending more than you intended to, you should know there is a way to sort that, depending on the reasons behind it. Do you find yourself spending out of FOMO with friends? Or trying to make a life change? You may simply not have a plan in place – if that sounds like you, here’s where to plan your spending with a budget.
Have you heard of lifestyle creep? It happens when we start earning, or each time we get a raise – our spending somehow swells to fit just below our income level (or above if we’re using debt). This makes life a struggle, as there is little money left over to build a savings buffer and fund your goals. To exit this cycle, you’ll need to save from every pay, and not leave it for last – you’ll need to pay yourself first. Here are 7 tips to get past living pay to pay.
Much of what we do with money is due to the habits we’ve fallen into. They are patterns recorded in our brains that we automatically return to. They can change! It can be also helpful to look at your preferences with money, as everyone has a unique style with it. You can gain a lot of insight into yourself if you reflect on the money household you grew up in as well. Was it anxious? Calm? Was money talked about openly? Or was it taboo?
We are all creatures of routine, and we fall into behaviour patterns that become habits over time. If you look your expenses over the past three months, you’ll see you’ve spent repeatedly on the same things, in the same places. Habits are powerful shortcuts our brains have permanently recorded – a cycle of triggers, routines and rewards. But they can be adjusted and replaced if you’re ready to make some changes. Here’s more for when you’re ready to kick your habits and pick others.
Good news: habits are not our destiny – they can be adjusted, or even replaced by new routines. A habit is a cycle of triggers, routines and rewards. Although they are stored in our brains permanently, we can find new routines that give us the same rewards. The key is to recognise what the triggers are. For example, if something leaves you anxious and you feel the urge to spend in order to cope, you can replace the shopping with something else to feel better. Here’s more on picking your habits.
This depends on what’s been happening in your money life, but for many of us it’s our relationship with money, especially debt, that needs a makeover. It can keep us from winning. That said, making changes can be confronting, because we have to examine what we’re actually doing by tracking our spending. Yet the only way out is to have a good hard look at what's happening with your money, and then to make changes. Then you can make your plan for your spending and flow your money towards your goals. That’s how you win with money.
Many of us feel hesitant to search (and pay for) financial advice, so there are many kinds of advisers that are not as well known. Money advice can come from financial mentors (who used to be called budget advisers), or financial advisers specialising in planning, mortgages or insurance. If you’re not sure who’s right for you, reach out to our partners at MoneyTalks, which has a free helpline. You can easily chat online, call 0800 345 123 or text 4029. For more, here’s our guide on getting advice.
Good advice is gold. It can help at every income level. But it’s important to find the right support – sounds like you’d benefit from a financial mentor (not a financial adviser). They provide a one-on-one service focused on empowering people. We highly recommend you discuss your situation as soon as you can – even anonymously – with our partners at MoneyTalks, which has a free helpline. You can easily chat online, call 0800 345 123 or text 4029. They can also refer you to other great services that are available.
Each of us has our natural tendencies when it comes to giving away money – we either lean towards planning ahead or being more spontaneous. If you sign up for regular donations, you’re a planner; if you give to everyone you see in need, you’re more spontaneous. Some of us can be generous to a fault – giving when we really need it for something else, or even going into debt and giving more than we have. It’s hard to say no! The first step is knowing yourself: here’s more about your money tendencies.
