Be a valued employee
Many employers tend to complain, “Good staff is hard to come by.”Prove yourself by being efficient in all your tasks, pitch company ideas to your boss and be a problem-solver. Demonstrate that you are a team player and you will stand out from the rest of your colleagues. If you play your cards right, you may even negotiate a pay raise afte

Save for rainy days
It’s one thing to earn money through hard work and another use it wisely. Put aside a small percentage of your salary every month. Stash your cash in the traditional ‘piggy bank’ at home, or open a savings account at a bank to earn monthly interest. Before you realize, you’ll have enough extra cash to spend on a holiday, a new scooter or even emergency medical bills.

Card it
Credit cards are a tool of convenience. Just key in a few numbers and you can pay bills, book holidays and shop voraciously online.It is especially useful for travelers who don’t like the hassle of dealing with cash in different currencies.

However, always swipe responsibly. Make sure you can afford the purchase before using a credit card to avoid living in debt.
