(MoneyHippo.com) – Managing your finances doesn’t have to be monumental. In fact, in the age of technology, many business owners use automated strategies for their companies that can benefit your personal finances when you use them too. Many people set up automatic payments to take care of their credit card bills, but you can also automate most of your bills. Look into obligations like your mortgage, water bill, electric payment, phone, internet, and rent to see about paying them automatically each month.
The only caution with setting up automatic payments is making sure you have the funds to cover them, and that’s where budgeting software can be helpful. Apps like Intuit Mint, You Need a Budget (YNAB), and Personal Capital link to your financial accounts to track income, expenses, savings, and investments, giving you a good picture of your financial standing.
Two other ways to automate your finances involve saving and investing because, without these two vehicles, it’s nearly impossible to grow wealth. Set up your bank account to automatically move money into savings with every paycheck for emergencies. Additionally, have money deducted from your income to invest in your retirement plan or another investment vehicle you expect to grow.
Setting these strategies can automatically reduce your stress level and set you up for financial success. Why not consider financial automation today?
