5 Things about Office Workers that Seniors Will Pass To Juniors

The advantage of being an office worker is that an office worker earns quite a stable income every month. This group of people is, thus, able to plan their expenses easily. However, many take this stable income for granted and fail to “expect the unexpected”. By the time they realize, it might be too late.


These are the things that many office workers would want to do the most if they could turn back time.

 

1. Part of the salary earned, save it into a savings account.

Every working person has the right to have savings. They just have to consistently save part of their earned income and spend after they make sure they saved some. It does not really matter on the amount they save every month, but if they have a goal of how much they want to have in their savings account per year, it would be a lot easier to picture and plan the amount they have to save. This sum of money is different than a salary account. Do not use the money saved here for investment or spend on miscellaneous. Only spend it in time of emergency.

2. Save some for the parents. It is equally important as the first point.

Knowing how to save, one should also know how to spend. Therefore, the remaining amount after saving should be given to parents. This would not need much explanation because every working person would be able to feel the importance of this money. The more one gives the more one gains.

3. One suitable credit card will be easier to plan expenses.

As office workers receive income monthly, applying for a credit card is not difficult at all. They do not even have to apply for themselves, there will be calls to persuade them almost every day. It all depends on whether having a credit card will aid office workers in their daily life or not. For example, one normally has to pay for internet fees every month. If they pay via credit card, they will gain points, cashback, or discounts. From the example, having a credit card actually is beneficial.


For those who have just started working or earn a relatively low income, they should look for credit cards without annual charges like SCB JCB PLATINUM. The application is also very simple.
