The more money you have, the more things you can do.
But what are you going to do with that extra money anyhow?
People tend to blow the money that they barely have. Sometimes they blow money before they even have it!
So, think about what you can do with your money, and think about what you are doing at the minute. Are you even covering the basics and making sure that you have a nice bit of savings behind you? Most people aren’t. When thinking about what to do with money, people often jump to spending and thinking about the materialistic things that can be had in life.
But there really is more to life than that, and that’s what people forget about. Money can be used in such a way that it can go in your favor, rather than it feeling as though it’s just being thrown down the drain.
So, to stop you throwing it down the drain, we’ve come up with some great tips that should help you do more with your money. Have a read on, and see what you think.
Develop Your Home
Developing your home is sort of like a long-term investment option.
If for example you have a family home, it might have a few bedrooms, and perhaps more than one bathroom. This is great, and it probably gives you all of the space that you need to be able to function as a happy family. However, your children hopefully aren’t going to live with your forever, and there comes a time where they’re going to have to move out.
When they do, you’re not going to want to live in some big house without any company apart from the two of you. However, when you come to sell, you might not feel as though you’re getting a good enough price, even though the house might be spacious and in a good area. So, you need to think about what it might be lacking.
This is where your development head comes on, and you think of all of the things that you can do to increase the value of your home for a future sale. Even though it might feel as though you’re wasting your money to begin with, it’s all about the money you’re going to make in the future.
The types of things that you want to be thinking about are extensions and renovations. You don’t necessarily need to extend to create another room, or another bathroom either.
You could extend and have a conservatory added to your home! It’s just a nice little bit of extra space, that can really end up giving you a lot of money when you come to sell your home. As for a renovation, you should aim to be doing this as close to the selling point as possible. The more modern your rooms are, the more money you’re going to end up getting from them.
Just make sure you’re doing your research well in advance to see what the in trend designs are, and which rooms you actually need doing. You don’t want to spend money renovating every room, you’ll only end up wasting your money! The kitchen and the bathroom are the two main rooms you should be focusing on.
Another simple option is to buy some smart home technology which might help improve the value of your home.
Could You Donate?
Doing more with your money doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve got to do more to benefit you. Sometimes, the selfless things we do in life will benefit us the most. Plus, this one will definitely make you feel humbled and honored. So, when thinking about donating, the charity that you donate to is important.
You can either pick a charity that you feel you can relate to. Perhaps someone in your family has been affected, or is being affected by a certain disease or illness. Or you could think about donating to human and wildlife aid organisations. The work that they’re doing around the world is revolutionizing some countries. Without it, some countries would struggle to get the majority of their population alive. But, it’s not just humans who desperately need your money.
Animals are crying out for help, especially those that are endangered at the moment. You don’t necessarily need to donate a fortune, literally every little does help when it comes to donating to charity.
You could even set up some form of fundraising day, and get your whole community involved. All you would need to do is pay to host and set up the event, and donate all of the proceedings to charity.
You might be able to make more this way, and you’re definitely going to raise some great awareness for whatever charity you’re trying to help. There’s also the option of going on pages such as gofundme, and figuring out which people need your help the most. Some of looking for money to complete humanitarian aid missions, others are desperately seeking money for the medical treatment they need. Putting your money to a good cause like this is sometimes the best option, especially when you feel as though you have money to blow.
If you don’t want to give away your money, and your main aim is to make it, then you’re going to have to think about investment options. First of all, you need to know that investment is risky. You’re not necessarily going to make back your money every time.
But, it’s a game that’s worth playing. Play it right, and you will always be building on your fortune. So, the first investment option that we want to talk about is the property one.
We’re talking about it first because it’s probably the most easiest to get into. First of all, you can go into properties abroad, which a lot of people are now choosing to do.
Once you’ve purchased an investment property, it’s all about making sure it’s perfect to rent out, and then getting the whole process of being able to rent it out started.
You should always make sure that you’re following the rules of the country that you would like to rent from. There are certain laws you’re going to need to follow, and you can get into a lot of trouble if you try and avoid them! To make sure you’re getting enough custom, you need to make sure you’re showing your apartment as listed on multiple different websites.
You’ll most likely have to pay a fee for this, but at least it’s going to bring you in some custom.
The second investment option we have to talk about is something you can do from the comfort of your own home, and you don’t need such a big lump sum of money to start the investment. We’re talking about bitcoin, and there’s many reasons why you should consider investing in this area.
Despite what people might think, there is a way of making money through it. All you need to do is learn how to trade, and do your thing! There are plenty of online tutorials that will walk you through the whole process. But essentially, it’s all about making sure that you’re buying and selling at the right time.
Sometimes, if you focus on what you’re spending your money on so much, and where it’s going at the end of every month, then you’re never going to be able to enjoy yourself. Sometimes, if you have the money to do so, you’re best off just enjoying yourself. As they say, you’re only young once, and life is meant for living.
Take some time to go and see the world, or buy that car you’ve always wanted to buy, or take yourself on the shopping trip that you have badly needed for so long.
The more you treat yourself, the happier you’re going to feel. But the thing you need to make sure of is that you’re not getting carried away. It’s so easy to overspend, and it’s what most people tend to do when they have a lot of money in their bank. The last thing you would want is to go from riches to rags, so always watch your money.
This is just a final option that you could think of. A little side business on top of what you already do could help your finances just grow and grow. It doesn’t have to be anything that takes too much of your time, perhaps something so simple as a home business in arts and crafts.
As long as it’s something that you can grow, it’ll be something that you’ll enjoy. Plus, if things get a little too hectic and you find you can’t manage, you can always give up!
Be sensible, and do more with the money you’ve got, While you can!
