RULE OF 50/30/20

  • In real world situations, Rules 50/30/20 RULE is very manageable in real-life practice. As recommended by the rule, we should diversify our income into three parts.
  • Our needs and necessary expenses should be covered by 50% of our earnings.
  • Our wants should count for 30% of our earnings, while the remaining 20% should be earmarked for savings and investments.
  • Most of us spend the majority of our earnings and save only a little part.
  • So, the 50/30/20 RULE helps us to limit overspending and contribute to healthy financial habits.

DO WE NEED TO DIVERSIFY OUR SAVINGS?
