Unfortunately, sometimes things in life do not go according to plan and you may find yourself either in low income or in unexpected debt. When this happens, you need to prioritize your payments.

How to Rank Your Expenses According to Their Priority?

  1. Provisions
  2. It is crucial to budget for food when you are on a tight budget. Always set aside money to buy provisions first so that you and your family don't end up hungry.

  3. Household Needs
  4. To cut costs, don’t buy anything that is not essential, like a hair gel or paper towels. You can also save money by using multipurpose items, looking for discounted sales, and buying things only when they are necessary.

  5. Rent or Mortgage Payment
  6. This is also another expense where you can't afford to risk delaying a payment.

  7. Basic Utilities
  8. Living without gas, electricity, or water can be very difficult or even dangerous if you have kids and older people at home because they are more susceptible to temperature changes.

  9. Insurance Premiums
  10. Even if you are short on money, never skip your insurance premiums.

  11. Collateral Loan Repayment
  12. If you have put your home or car as collateral, make sure to keep all the loan repayments current.
