Life is full of uncertainties, and while it may seem impossible to plan for unexpected expenses, your financial boat could sink if you are not prepared.
- Start by identifying your unexpected expenses. Make a list of seasonal expenses, like car insurance, sports fees, dental bills etc.
- Build up a solid emergency fund to pay for unexpected expenses. Have some easily accessible cash on hand just in case you need it in a hurry.
- Put non-essential spending on hold like if you have been saving up for a high-priced item but suddenly need funds, you can tap into that money.
- Have adequate life insurance to provide for your family. When your family depends primarily on your income to pay debts, life insurance is especially important.
