A budget: The pandemic has reminded us of the importance of having one

Importance of having a budget

We’ve all been there. You’re out of cash, you have nothing in your bank account, and the next paycheck is more than a week away. There’s no one to borrow from or ask for help. The pandemic has reminded us that it’s important to plan ahead before an emergency situation arises. It’s crucial to create a budget with monthly expenses so you know how much money you need each month to make ends meet. Having a budget will also allow you to save up for emergencies like car repairs or medical bills without having to worry about paying rent or other living expenses on time.

 Are you worried about your finances?

The pandemic has reminded us of the importance of having a budget. “The pandemic impacted people very differently,” says Brian O’Leary, wealth advisor and senior analyst at Aline Wealth. “The key lesson is circumstances can change very rapidly.”

It may be difficult to think about money when there are so many other things on your mind but it’s important to stay focused on what matters most right now – taking care of yourself and those around you.

“It’s not just about surviving,” says O’Leary, “it’s also about thriving.” And that starts with making sure you’re financially prepared for whatever comes next. So if you want some help getting back on track or simply need someone to talk through your options with then give us a call today! We’ll take good care of you!

It’s important to have an emergency fund

This means it’s important to have an emergency fund that you can tap into if your income stream changes or disappears entirely for any reason – including illness or injury. “It’s important to have enough money set aside so you don’t need to sell investments during a market downturn,” says O’Leary.

“That could mean setting aside six months’ worth of expenses.” If you’re not sure how much that is, use this simple formula as a guide: multiply your monthly expenses by six (or more). That number should give you an idea of how much cash flow you’ll need in case things go south quickly and unexpectedly – like they did with the flu outbreak earlier this year.

And remember, even though we’re all feeling better now and life seems normal again, there are still millions around the world who aren’t out of danger yet – which means it might be time for another round of vaccinations before next winter rolls around!
