Here are the top 8 habits that can sneak into your hard-earned income and eat up your funds.

1) Spending more as your income increases

Theres no harm in raising your standard of life when you can. However, if you are a person who is constantly looking for ways to spend your money, you will probably findyourself in a difficult situation soon enough. If you continuously raise your expenditure along with any increase in your income (or even without it), it would be hard to have any real savings.

Try to keep your expenditures at a constant level along with exploring ways to increase your income. Thats the route to success!

2) Focusing on the present without caring about the future

Usually, when people find it hard to tackle a problem, they choose to ignore it. Thats a sure recipe for disaster. The same is the case with your finances. Generally, people focus on their present needs, wishfully thinking that future needs will somehow be met in some way.

You need to take the future into perspective whenever you are making any financial decision. Although it is good to take care of everything in the present, do your best to save for your future.

3) You think it is too early to start saving

When you are young, it is easy to get carried away by the various pleasures money can buy. People often think that right now is too early to start saving or investing. Wrong! It is never too early to save a portion of your income, no matter how low or high your income is!

Start saving today! In fact, experts say that you should save beforeyou spend. Keep aside a portion of whatever money or income you get, and then spend the rest!

4) Not keeping a record of your money

We all think that we know where our money comes from and where it ends up. Sadly, thats not true for most of us. We might be aware of our major expenditures, but the small things usually eat up our finances more than the big ones.
