Kakebo: The New Way To Save Money
By Hani Motoko
Kakebo, the Japanese journal that has become the new money saving technique, can help you to pocket that bit more each month.
From the country that is full of minimalist living experts, it is a foolproof way in ensuring that you put away a little extra for the things that really matter this Christmas.
Hani Motoko walks us through this straightforward process. All you need to do is sit down with your kakebo and think about how much you would like to save each month, and what you need to do to achieve this target, which is usually done on payday. The kakebo then gives you the space to note down your weekly spending, and at the end of the month you can look back and see exactly where your money has been going.
Sticking to this simple act of jotting down your expenses ensures that money saving becomes a part of your daily routine.
The perfect gift for those who struggle to save, this makes a great stocking filler for friends or family members.
And with New Year just around the corner, it can help you get that bit closer to finally ticking that resolution off your list.
