Retirement Savings

It is always suggested to start saving for retirement to the earliest, in fact from the time you start earning. Those who have irregular income must save at least 10 percent of the income for retirement. It is better if you can split 20 percent of your cash flow for the purpose.

Debt Management

You, like others, wish to be debt-free at some point. Before you start clearing those, it is important to note you should not use up all your income to pay it off. Also, first clear those debts which are of high interest compared to the lower interest ones as you can hang on with it for longer periods of time.

Personal Expenditure

If your income is irregular, it is believed you don’t have room for lavish expenditure. However, it is not true. You can spend, but ahead of it you must prioritize your personal spending. Save a little pleasure reserve too every month from your income so that you don’t find yourself odd one out when it is time to pamper yourself.
