5 Money Lessons You Didn't Learn in School

Jagoans, try to remember, what did you study when you were in school? You learned mathematics, languages, computers and a number of other lessons. But, did you also learn about money?

Jago doesn’t think so. Maybe even the most basic things like budgeting are not taught in schools. Reading this article can help you because Jago will discuss 5 money lessons that you didn’t learn in school.

Ever Learned These 5 Money Lessons in School?

1. Budgeting can make your life easier

Those who have consistently made a budget for all kinds of needs every month must have felt changes in their lives, such as life becoming easier and less stressful.

It's true, budgeting means you have a plan for what you're going to do with your money. With good budgeting, you won't forget to pay your monthly bills. You will also set aside some money for savings before using it for fun.

Budgeting also helps you take control of your finances and will make it easier for you when you have to make financial decisions.

2. The importance of time

Time plays an important role in many aspects of life. For example, if you are just a few minutes late arriving at the airport, you could miss your flight.

Regarding money, if you are late paying your monthly bills, you will be fined. Not to mention the consequences like temporary disconnection, for the internet and electricity, for example.

Then, the role of time is also important in saving. For example, the earlier you save for retirement, of course, the more money you will have when it’s time to retire, if you save the same amount every month.

3. Discipline leads to freedom

One way to enjoy freedom is to practice discipline. What is meant by freedom? Of course this depends on each person. For example, by having money, you can help people in need, if that is something you are passionate about.

How do you practice discipline? You can consistently stick to the budget you have made and automate your savings so you always save every month.

4. It's safe when you have an emergency fund

Life is full of unexpected events. A refrigerator that suddenly doesn't work, a car that suddenly breaks down, a sudden loss of work and so on.

Even though emergency events are not fun at all. But, you can breathe easy when you have an emergency fund that you can depend on.
