Living Below Your Means

Over spending habit has to be bumped off at all cost. You have to live within a budget and minimize your expenditure.

Failing to conduct these would result in high expenditure, sometimes even more than what you income and eventually make your monetary position fall big time.

Investing Your Savings Skillfully

You may find numerous options when it comes to investment. But those all can be narrowed down to two: either you can be a loaner or an owner. A loaner is someone who invests his money in return of interest whereas an owner is somebody who invests in someone else's business.

A huge proportion of people can be found to invest money in super-safe investment like government bonds(which comes under loaner category) and get interest up-to 4%. But under inflation it will be very hard to sustain under this category.

Stocks and Debenture investments(which comes under owner category) beats inflation by approximate 8% . Thus it is far better than government bonds but comes with bit of a risk.

For safer investments you should invest your savings eggs both as loaner as well as a owner. Investments can be made monthly in small amounts to reduce risk percentage. 

A common rule which is very much effective can be applied while investing. The rule goes like this : The result you would get after subtracting your age from 100 could be the percentage of savings you can invest. Like if you are 30 years old then you can invest 70% of your spare money(Money incurred after saving for emergency funds and retirement account) to stocks or debentures whereas if you are 75 then you can invest 25% of your long-term saving.

Making your after retirement dream come true is not an unattainable task. Maintaining some few rules and regulations and changing a few expensive habit while you are earning would make the dream much easier to accomplish and land you in a wonderful after retirement life.
