4 ways to leave Dubai rich

Dec. 05, 18 | 2:13 pm

There are several ways to spend money, than ways to earn them. However, if you would focus your mind to saving, you should be able to do so.

With a little help, you could go home richer than when you left Pinas.

Here’s a list of things you could do to help you get started:

Today is the best day to start!

That small amount of money that seems trivial ends up to be a huge amount at some point. If you tend to buy a can of soda everyday, try setting them aside and watch how much it is at the end of the week. By then, you would be able to appreciate other more important things that you could buy from it.

Pay yourself first

Some people think of saving as spending first, and then whatever comes out in excess, goes to the bank.

True saving is doing it the other way around.

Allot 5-10 percent of your salary and set it aside. Whatever remains of it goes to your usual spend for the duration of the period until your next salary.

Save your change

When done daily, those loose change that end up in the washing machine amounts to a decent value at some point. You’d be surprised that you have money that is good enough to buy yourself an extra pair of shoes!

Don’t convert currencies

Converting currencies is probably the best way to make you feel depressed, as you would only tend to compare the benefits and facilities that you might be enjoying in whatever country it is you’re staying.

However, this is only self-defeating. Bear in mind that if this country is not a third-world country, then chances are, their taxes are wisely spent. Laws are carefully and scrupulously implemented and facilities will always be at par with other first-world countries.

Living conditions are different, as well as modes of income.

So, the next time you feel like converting, stop! Just appreciate the place for what it is.
