THE NEWLYWED'S FIVE STEP GUIDE TO MONEY MANAGEMENT

With the increasing number of couples getting married, this is an excellent time to review the financial aspects of a new marriage. While most soon-to-be newlyweds are concentrating on the wedding night, it is not uncommon to find that most couples have not discussed the financial stuff. There are five simple steps every newly married couple can use to build a successful financial future.

CREATE A HOUSEHOLD BUDGET

A budget determines how much income will be allocated to pay for household expenses. At first, it may be difficult for newlyweds to determine how much money they spend and where they spend it. An ideal way to determine how and where money is spent is use a daily transaction record sheet. This is similar to a daily diary. Write down a description of the transaction and the amount, then indicate how it was paid for. By recording how the transaction was paid for and what was purchased, this will determine how and where money is spent. To get a true indication of spending habits, use this method for two or three months.

A cash flow statement is next part of creating a budget. Compile the information from the daily transactions sheets into a cash flow statement. This will show where money is coming from and where it is going. After a couple of months history together, the couple will be able to allocate their resources appropriately and create a household budget.

  • THE DEFINITION OF INVESTING

    Since everyone has a different definition of investing, each spouse should write down what they want from their investments. For example, one spouse may be willing to accept large short-term fluctuations for long-term gain, while the other wants little fluctuation of principal. By doing this the household portfolio will be properly allocated.
     

  • PAY YOURSELF FIRST

    The new couple should pay themselves first before they pay their monthly bills. It doesn't matter if they put $5 or $75 a week into an investment plan. By doing this they will be forming the vital habit of investing for their future. For example, if an individual invests approximately $65 a week for 35 years into an investment with an annualized return of 10%, the investment could be worth approximately $1 million dollars!

  • CONDUCT ANNUAL PORTFOLIO REVIEWS

    Many changes will take place over the coming years. Everyone should review their investments annually and reallocate them to reflect a changing lifestyle.

  • REVIEW YOUR CREDIT REPORTS

    Your credit report will tell you exactly where you stand financially. If you have bad credit, you may not be able to buy your first house or rent an apartment. Either way, it is a good idea to know what is in your report. If would like to get a copy of your report and find out what is in it, Take the first step toward taking control of your credit is to find out about your credit score!
