How to start planning

Important parts of a plan

Financial plan is a flow of money. It must have 2 major items: incomes and expenses. Let's stick with these two for now.

Building a plan

Plan incomes

For most of the people it's the easiest part. We are employees, have a fixed salary. Probably, some income from real-e-state objects we lend, or dividends. Such things is easy to plan.
What if we run a business? Then we should have a rough estimate. Or get some vision based on previous year. Or, at least, our earning goal.

Plan expenses

Pay debts

This is the most important part of the expenses. Debts is the main pressure. If we don't have enough earnings - we can skip vacation, rent a cheaper apartment, sell the car. But debts must be paid in time. So plan this first.

Taxes

Another important thing is taxes. Not paying taxes is a crime. And this must be avoided. Let's plan this too.

Rental payments, public services

Rent an apartment? Plan the rental payments too if you don't like to live in a paper box under a bridge.
Also don't forget to plan the public services. You always can check out your last payments and see how much should be planned - such things we pay every month.

Other expenses

Food, apparel, fuel, car service - just remind yourself what you paid for last weeks. If you forgot something - not a problem - you can update your plan later.
Just remember: having a bad plan is always better than having no plan!

Not able to plan myself

if this is the case, you still have few options:

hire a financial advisor

5 steps to begin

1. Data Collection Before making any plan you should learn yourself a bit: financial habits and regular, mandatory incomes/expenses. The regular incomes (such as salary), mandatory expenses (taxes, insurance, rent) can be planned right away. However, such things as food expenses, garments might be hard to predict. Then it makes sense to track such expenses for a few months to get an idea about monthly levels of those. 2. Select Method Most of the financial advisors suggest 3D budgeting schemas, like X:Y:Z. For instance, you can see such recommendations as 70:20:10, or 50:30:20, etc. Such methods suggest that you allocate X% of your income to expenses, Y% - to savings, and Z% to debt.
