How to ball without going broke

It's good to have a nice time but it shouldn't come to the detriment of your savings. (Photo used for illustrative purpose)

Follow this tips and you will never go broke wile balling.

I am sure you have once been at that point where you had to choose between being a baby girl or ‘bad” boy and just keeping that cash for more important stuff

Here are some tricks to stay within budget. We don’t want to hear stories that touch before the end of the month.

Draw up a budget

I know, I get it. Handling that much money can be a big deal. Especially if it is your first salary. But you have to be smart about it. Else, you might be in capital OYO.

Get a grip! Find coping mechanisms if necessary. Probably remember what it felt like being broke or remember the joy of seeing the digits go up in your account. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do

Don’t be stingy to yourself please! Don't budget #500 for transport when you know it takes #1000 to get you to your office. You might be lucky sometimes, but manna does not fall from heaven!

This is a big life saver. I will advise you run two separate accounts one for savings and one for “spend money”.

I know some of us just can’t get a hold of ourselves. Especially when that lovely shoe we have been eyeing pops up or nice food location drops. Not having your ATM handy will reduce the urge.

There are so many apps and investment schemes springing up these days encouraging saving habits. Invest in them. Learn to save!! We are not talking of the miracle workers o. Legit apps in which you can monitor your growth.

Slayers... It's absolutely fine to want to go all out to look peng. But what would become of a slay queen who after all the cute look can’t afford bus fare home?
