We do our best when it comes to managing money – but for some, it’s not enough. A survey by TheMoneyPig.com suggests 64% of Brits run out of money before payday, with 28% opting to borrow from friends, family or both. 
7 Money-Saving Tips So You Don’t Run Out Before Next Payday
It’s no wonder some of us are rubbish at managing our finances, though – schools don’t teach us it (would’ve been useful) and as adults, we have to contend with the often overwhelming world of money – increasing interest rates, overdrafts, tax confusions, credit rating woes, and hard-to-navigate booklets we never read.
According to a recent YouGov survey, 29% of people say their financial circumstances have worsened in the past six months, and with new overdraft rules about to come into play, it’s time to get on top of things.
Here’s how to make sure your money lasts – so you’re not caught short before your next payday. Related... The New Overdraft Changes Explained #1 Budget like a bossThe key is to plan – and yes, it might sound mind-numbingly boring (we know, you’d much rather be doing literally anything other than financial planning), but it will save you stress at the end of the month, week, or whenever you get paid.
Money expert Kane Georgiou, from TheMoneyPig.com, urges people to use a cashflow sheet – basically a budget planner – which details what money is coming in and out of your bank account every month. 
“All expenses should be written down and accounted for, so you know exactly how much you have left,” says Georgiou. The Money Advice Service has a budget planner tool to get you started.#2 Shop around for cheaper bill providersOnce you’ve done this, reassess what you’re spending every month. Andrew Johnson, money expert at the Money and Pensions Service, says a good way to cut back is to shop around for the best deals on essentials like energy or broadband. 
“Check comparison sites to see if you’re getting the best deal on your credit card, mobile phone and energy supplier,” he suggests. It’s estimated that the average household can save £300 a year by switching gas and electricity supplier.
It’s a bit of an admin task short-term, but it’ll be worth it long-term. Take a day to methodically work through your bills, suggests Steve Nowottny, news editor at MoneySavingExpert.com: “It may not be fun, but for most it’ll be their best-paid day of the year – many can save thousands on everything from energy to childcare.​”Related... The Budgeting System You Need To Try If You Live Paycheck-To-Paycheck #3 Save what you saveIf you’re making savings from switching providers, Johnson advises you to put this extra money into a separate savings account – rather than spending it. “Don’t worry if it’s only a small amount, this can add up in the long term,” he says.
Even if you aren’t making savings from your bills, it’s still worth saving a little bit of cash each month so you always have a buffer. Treat your savings like you’re paying a bill. Set up a regular payment into your savings account – this could be £10, £20,  £100 or more – so you have money on the side for emergencies.#4 Get savvy with cashA helpful way to cut down on overspending – especially for those who are partial to online shopping – is to take the money you have left to spend out in cash, and only use cash for purchases for the month. 
Georgiou says this is a good idea because using a debit or credit card for all purchases is an easy way to rack up debt without knowing. #5 Turn to tech and use an appAnother way to help track your spending before your next payday is to use an app like Wally and Money Dashboard.
Some banks, like Monzo, help you monitor your spending by sending app alerts as and when you buy something – at the end of the month you can see how much you’ve spent at Starbucks, for example. Often, just seeing you’ve spent £50+ at a coffee shop in one month can help you cut down. Related...

You can also use the debt advice locator tool on the Money Advice Service website to find an adviser in your local area.#7 Consider your overdraft... as a last resortIf you can’t make ends meet, now may be a good time to consider using your overdraft facility on your bank account if you think you’ll only occasionally dip into it, says Johnson. “However, if you’re in your overdraft for most of the month, you could face additional costs.”Related...
