    Fpr da ladies: How do you save up?

    So I cant help myself buying beauty products like pads, feminine wipes, hair oil and deaodarant and all that good stuff, on my way home from school.
    But I cant seem to learn how to save up because I get so tempted to spend! It's like an impulse thing. How do you girls get over it?

    All those stuff i mentioned above are a must-have!!! I'll feel pretty gross without having them in my bag!

    Also, not only do I spend on those. I spend a lot on snacks and food as well. These are done whilst im on my way home.

    Because of this, I need to step up on my savings in the long term, because I don't wanna end up like a brokeASS kid.

    So girls, how do you guys get rid of this fitna to spend more than you need? It's a bad habit I've been having, and I'd like to hear some tips from you guys.

    I don't, until I've paid off my loan, majority going towards that
    Interest keeps building though, so will prolly be like 2 years till it's paid off
    Insha ' Allah its sooner though.

    When bagging your bag before going out, make sure you have essential with you. I have 'girl's survival kit' in my bag, that will stop impulse shopping. In sha'Allah.

    Masha'Allah, that you want to better your financial situation. May Allah SWT make it ease for you.

    Keep snacks in your bag, as fruit/nuts/sandwich/water/chocolate.
    Plan what you need for month, and buy accordingly. Look for good deals and stock up in some items. Buy cheaper alternatives, as often we pay for packaging.
    Try to save 15-30% from your disposable income. If not possible, save even few coins a week, and built up from there, in sha'Allah. Try living by your means. making rough monthly budget.
    When buying something more expensive, shop around for best deal and save for it.

    Don't forget to reward/spoil yourself, when you deserve it.

    If his Deen is on spot, I wouldn't care less about money.
    Money is so common everyone has it, some extent.

    Okay. Sorry if I seem a little harsh earlier. I'm naturally not much of a spender, so I don't keep a specific budget that I stick to, because I'm not prone to impulse shop, Alhamdulillah. Here are some tips that might help you.

    1. ALWAYS look at the price before picking an item, even something small like a candy.

    2. Compare prices, buy the one that has most value, not necessarily the cheapest. Look for offers, discounts, etc.

    3. Do NOT buy things you don't need. If you already have a full bottle of shampoo / lotion / deodorant / whatever at home, do NOT buy another one. Just nope.

    3. Make a list of things you need before you go shopping. Go inside the shop, pick up the items and get out (don't forget to pay! :D). Do NOT browse around or window shop.

    4. Food and snacks, this is a bit trickier, I know. Sometimes you get back from work/school, and you're hungry and you think I deserve a treat. This is what I do, and I don't know if it's applicable to you. When I get paid, I keep $50 in my wallet, and I put the rest into my savings account. I pay for everything with my debit card, including grocery shopping. That way, I only use the cash for snacks or ready-made food, and I won't spend over the budget for them. If I run out of cash, I don't take out more from an ATM.

    Hope this helps. Practice them from now, and InshaAllah by the time you start earning your own money, you will have good spending habits.

    Oh, one last important thing. Try to give sadaqah whenever you can. This will increase your rizq, InshaAllah.
    Nice! The last tip, especially. ;)

    Well you can stop by going to malls or going on shopping websites and when you do go shopping make a list of what you need and don't deviate from it, keep your credit card limit low.

    If i actually told you how much I spent in shopping this summer you wouldn't even believe it but alhumdulilah something i can afford comfortably, never spent more than i could afford. There's no concept of saving these days, people spending money left right and center with no sense of responsibility.
