Personal finance for housewives – Save, Invest and Manage your Money better!

Learning about finance and taking control of our own personal finance has now become like a basic necessity. No matter how much we try to ignore, the subject of money is a crucial one and we all, especially women, must make ourselves financially literate and avoid being heavily depended on our spouses for the same. So, here in this article, I wish to discuss all the aspects of personal finance for housewives and homemakers. You may or may not realize that your contribution in running a household is huge! If you take control of your spending and saving habits, you can witness a massive transformation. Yes, learning a little bit about SIPs and Schemes for women that various intuitions provide can help you big-time to grow your money.

A penny saved is a penny earned!

Before diving into any of the other money making or investing ideas, the first and foremost tip in managing your personal finance as a homemaker is saving. Yes, hold your cravings and reduce unnecessary expenses which lead to crash crunch every now and then. Prepare a list of your needs and expenditures so as to get a vague idea of how much do you need in a month and save the rest. This list will help you control any extra splurges and impulsive expenditure. You can also set a goal of saving a set amount of money and try to reach that goal every month. Open a savings bank account if you already do not have one and monitor your savings while you earn the interest.

Home makers are best accountants

Easy SIPs:

These days, SIPs or Systematic Investment Plans are considered one of the best investing options. It is a mode of investment with mutual funds but is a lot better when it comes to market risks. SIPs are generally low or nil risk investments where you can invest a said month every month/ quarterly for a long tenure say 10 or 15 years and save a good corpus. It can be as small as saving INR 500-1000 per month which is easily achievable for homemakers. SIPs’ gives a lot of returns and are much better than Fixed Deposits or having a regular savings account. When talking about personal finance for housewives, SIP just tops the list.

Mutual Funds:

Another interesting investment idea is to get into the Mutual Fund. You can take help from a broker or a friend who is into stocks and bonds to start investing in good returns. To explain mutual funds, it is just letting an expert handle your money and invest in stocks rather than you taking all the trouble. Mutual Funds of big and profitable companies and top Banks among others ensure good returns. You have the option to choose from multiple schemes which are best suited for your needs.

Gold Schemes:

This is one of the most popular investment options when it comes to personal finance for housewives. All the top gold jewelers and brands offer some or the other schemes for women. One of which in trend states that the customer has to pay 11 installments of a said amount and the 12th installment is paid by the gold brand itself so as to attain the desired jewelry in return. Another thing which you can do is buy small portions of gold every now and then with the saved money you have got and later convert it into a great jewelry design.

Women-centric bank schemes:

There are multiple schemes that bank run for women. Here is a very useful article by bank bazaar that talks about all the accounts and schemes that banks offer for women.

Government schemes:

There are many schemes by the government for the welfare of women. For homemakers, for entrepreneurs, and for working women, here are some useful schemes: Cent Kalyani Scheme, Mahila Udhyam Nidhi Scheme, Annapurna Scheme, Stree Shakti, Orient Mahila Vikas Yojana Scheme, Dena Shakti Scheme, India Post Schemes. You can avail the benefits for these by applying for them.
Apart from all these ideas, you must track your expenses and income in order to have an equilibrium on the financial front. As homemakers, you basically run a complex system which is your own house. So, personal finance for housewives is a subject which everyone must learn more about and start growing and saving your money by taking control of it and investing smartly. You can also take loans for your business which you started as hobby.

If you have any other ideas, do leave it in the comments below for the benefit of other readers!

Visit Leh Ladakh – To Explore Beauty of Mountains

Ladakh a land of high passes is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and culture. It has snow-clad peaks which kiss the clouds, serenity exists in peaceful lakes and time seems to stand still since there is no rush and bush in their life. Life in Leh is full of divine, spirituality and you will find surprises at every turn of your journey. You cannot predict about nature and climate at Leh-Ladakh because it frequently changes. You will find hot during daytime and during night time you might require winter wear. If you are planning to visit Leh Ladakh you should carry Umbrella, winter wear as well as summer wear.

Leh LadakhKnow About Leh Ladakh

Ladakh is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and its culture is closely related to Tibet. Leh is the largest town in Ladakh followed by Kargil. Majority of people living in Ladakh are Shia Muslims and remaining are mostly Tibetan Buddhists. A few years back Leh-Ladakh was a place visited by the majority of foreigners, but recently it has gained popularity as a tourist destination among Indians too. Top tourist attractions in Leh-Ladakh are Chang La, Khardung La, Nubra valley, Pangong lake, Leh Palace, Shanti Stupa, Hall of Fame, Thiksey Monastery, Alchi Choskor Monastery, Magnetic hill, Zanskar valley, Lamayuru Monastery, Hemis national park.

How to Reach Leh Ladakh

There are several ways to reach Leh, one can take a direct flight to Leh from Mumbai. You can also take a flight from Delhi to Leh from major airlines such as Indian Airlines or Jet Airways. One can take road journey either from Manali or Srinagar. It takes a two-day journey from Manali to Leh with a night halt at Sarchu. On the other hand, Srinagar to Leh also takes a two-day journey with a night halt at Kargil. But most of the tourists who prefer coming by road routes comes from Srinagar than Leh and then Manali. All the road routes are open from May to October.

Leh LadakhSince Ladakh is situated at a very high altitude i.e. above 10,000 meters above the sea level, anybody traveling at such a high altitude are bound to find difficulty in breathing. One could also suffer from high altitude sickness which happens due to the low atmospheric oxygen level. Some of the common symptoms of high altitude sickness include giddiness, lack of sleep, digestion problem, loss of appetite, etc. So, some of the safety measures should be considered if you are planning to visit Leh Ladakh.

  1. Travelers are asked to take enough rest once reaching Leh-Ladakh to acclimatize to the higher altitudes.
  2. It is recommended to drink plenty of water to remain hydrated.

Places to Visit

Although Leh-Ladakh is considered as a hardy adventurous destination, it is also an ideal honeymoon destination for newlywed couples. Some of the romantic places to visit Leh Ladakh honeymoon packages include Pangong Lake, Nubra valley, and Sham valley, etc. Although Leh-Ladakh is a huge region with numerous places to explore, still travelers prefer either 7 nights 8 days or 8 nights 9 days package. The best time to visit Leh Ladakh is from April to June. During this time period, one can get the clear vision of scattered landscapes and clear sunny weather.

LadakhFrom July to August, the weather in Leh-Ladakh cannot be predicted, because during this time period many regions of Leh-Ladakh experiences rain, landslides, and even cloudbursts, still many travelers visit during this time too. From the September month, Leh-Ladakh experiences snowfall at many places thus giving a start to the chilly weather with shining sun in the afternoon. From October to March, this place becomes unbearably cold thus tourists don’t prefer to visit Leh Ladakh during this time. However, adventure seekers and hardy travelers prefer during this time for unreliable treks and also for a trek on the frozen river called as ‘Chadar Trek’ for which Leh-Ladakh is famous all over the world.

Knowing about the beauty of Leh-Ladakh, it becomes everyone’s dream to visit Leh Ladakh at least once in a lifetime. Recently my sister with her husband visit Leh Ladakh. She went through Heena Tours and Travels for 7 nights 8 days packages. She preferred Heena Tours amongst the other tours because Heena Tours is specialized in providing pure veg with Jain food.

Since Leh-Ladakh is a place with the majority of people having non-vegetarian food, you will hardly find pure Veg restaurants and Pure Veg Food there. So, if you are a vegetarian it is best option to go through Heena Tours and Travels. She shared the experience of her entire journey with me, which I am going to describe in this blog.

Experience of Leh Ladakh Trip

She took a direct flight from Mumbai to Leh using GoAir. After reaching the Leh Airport, they were received by one of the tour members and were dropped at the booked Hotel. They were also a few other couples from other places of India and also three families from out of India. Since they reached during lunchtime, the tour guide asked everyone to have lunch and then to gather at the Hotel’s lobby to share a few tips and to discuss the scheduled of the following days.

He, first of all, made everyone aware of the symptoms of the high altitude sickness and asked everyone to carry their own personal water bottle wherever they go and to have plenty of water. He then said the first day is for rest to acclimatize to the high altitude sickness problem since they were at above 10,000 ft above sea level. He further said many among them might find difficulty in breathing because of the low atmospheric oxygen level and might also fall prey to altitude sickness.

For some of them, it was not much than a boring speech with no meaning unless they saw some females and kids started having breathing problem and dizziness. It was only after that, those people took the words of that tour guide seriously. He discussed all the symptoms of high altitude sickness and also shared the essential remedies for it.

  1. He asked everyone to take complete rest till next day.
  2. He also asked everyone to speak less.
  3. To have plenty of water or to have water mixed with some energy powder like Glucon-D, Electoral powder, etc.
  4. To carry a camphor in the handkerchief and to smell it whenever they feel scarcity of oxygen or breathing problem.
  5. To carry the necessary tablets with them, whenever they travel like Crocin, Calpol, Avomine, etc.
  6. He also discussed the group oxygen cylinder and about the personal oxygen cylinders which travelers can carry with them and can use during emergency or while having major breathing problems at several other high altitude places like Khardungla and Chang la.

Even my sister was affected because of the high altitude, she had a problem in breathing and also dizziness during the beginning hours and it took her about two to three days to adjust to the high altitude atmosphere. The same day they took complete rest in the hotel room and some of them preferred to visit the Leh market which was nearby the hotel.

I hope you have understood Importance of games in student’s life.

High five principles of sports

After understanding the Importance of games in student’s life, lets understand some principles of sports in students’ life. Now let’s talk about what you as a parent have to do if your child is engaged in any kind of sports. The constant support of family helps the children to feel good about them and it strengthens your connection with them. Your teen in his/her growing age might not easily find time to spend with you, sports can give you and your teen a lot of time to appreciate and bond with each other. There are some key points you must know to give your child a safe and successful sports experience.

Coach
Successful sports experience always starts with the right choice of coach. Coach is a caring adult that follows the principles of healthy child development. The positive and supportive relationship with an adult helps the teens to develop optimistic social skills, strong self-esteem and positive peer relations. Positive coaching gives the teens the right tools to push themselves academically and physically. A good coach ensures that the child feels safe; both physically and emotionally.

Friendship
The coach helps the child to learn the importance of friendship. Many times the teen gets this opportunity in schools by taking part in games and sports. It is the time when teens from different backgrounds meet together. They learn to make friends regardless of their diversity and uniqueness. They are exposed to a bigger world beyond their family and neighborhood. Friends offer support, positive competitive surroundings and healthy criticism.

Structure rules of the game
If the child is following same structure rules for sports training consistently, it can be a little boring. Children learning through new and different methods daily and with a good coach, who some time at practices allows the child to shape their own environment, use their imagination and extend a variety of sports skills through a variety of activities, helps the child to become more efficient and gives better result. When I see my kid playing some sports which I never thought, but learning to what coach is explaining makes me understand the Importance of games in student’s life. They really learn something good and usual in their life with new games.

Capability of children
Capability of children should always be put in light before providing them training for any kind of sports. It makes the children feel that they are getting better at something. They do better day by day by participating at their own skill level. You have to make sure that the equipment must be of proper size for the children and the rules are not too difficult according to their understanding level. Always keep in mind that the development of children is more important than winning or losing in the game.

Participation
The real results are seen only when the child participates in different sports events. Again, winning and losing the game really doesn’t matter. What really matters the most is participation. You have to make sure that the children are participating at their own comfort level; they have to learn making choices, have a voice of their own and do things by and for themselves. Ensure that the child always remains interested, is moving a lot and is totally motivated by what he/she is learning every day.
Games and physical activities are an integral part of children and students activities. Parents must encourage their little ones to go out and play as it is really important to keep them healthy. I hope you know understood the importance of games in student’s life, it is time to actually use the pointers discussed above in reality.

Flying with kids #travelwithkids #blogchatterA2Z

One of the fondest memory of my childhood was waving a big goodbye everything I see an aeroplane flying in the sky. Such was the craze of flying which is still continued. I love traveling through flights whether it is for domestic travel or international one. Since air travel is the fastest means of transport, I prefer flights when I’m Flying with kids. Though it is expensive to travel through flights every time but looking at the time-saving feature, my family travel more via flights.

flying with kidsIf you are a traveler, you should plan your holiday budget accordingly. Internationally we don’t have options, other than using flight as the mode of transportation. But in India, we can travel thru buses, trains etc. Despite being the most expensive means of transport, people prefer Flying with kids via aeroplanes as this itself is kind of fun for kids. I remember angel at 2 years flying with me to Goa, started talking to the air hostess and asking her “aunty when will aeroplane fly “and everyone surrounding us started laughing.

Flying with kids can make good friends too. The best example is when we went to Singapore, we had the similar family like us with one kid, and angel and that girl became so close that I had to make friendship with her mom and now we are so close friends.

Flying with kids or otherwise also has a lot of benefits

Excursion with kids #travelwithkids #blogchatterA2Z

An excursion with kids means a trip made by a group of people for leisure or with some purpose, especially for education purpose.  Excursions are the short educational trips which give students chance to explore new places. Educational trips range from local visits to business to international excursions, with the overnight stay.

There are several advantages of excursions with kids
  1. Through educational excursions students becomes more interested in the exploration of the environment.
  2. It helps kids develop their power of observation, thinking, teamwork, problem-solving and exploration talents.

  5. It helps in the development of overall talent of kids.
  6. It helps in proper utilization of leisure time and also helps divert your child in other activity.

travel1For the organization of Excursions the following points should be kept in mind:
  1. The excursion should be planned carefully under the guidance of a responsible teacher and should be well in time.
  2. Prior arrangements for the place, for the stay, for meals, and for other basic necessities should be made before.
  3. Teachers should be trained in such a manner so that they can give the best educational knowledge to students during the excursion.
  4. Every excursion should have some goal and a definite program to fulfill the goal.
  5. All Students should be given proper information about the trip and the list of things to carry during the excursion.

The teachers or the institutes should keep in mind that the destinations for excursions should be selected, which gives knowledge and information to students. Like the excursions should be to museums, historical places, places of geographical importance, to the zoo or to industrial centers.

The efforts and support from each and everyone involved in the excursion is needed to make the excursion memorable and thrilling.

A ‘Blue Globe’ resting in my living hall was my de-stressor. Whenever I felt sad or low, I spun the globe rapidly and took myself to the Arctic Ocean and sat in silence near an ice-block, waiting for someone to take me back to my land. At times, I used to jump into the Niagara Falls to escape my sorrows. I grew up solving puzzles and playing with world maps and this made me realize my love for travel that included larger than life adventures so that I can overcome my fear. This took me on a journey to soak in the radical beauty of the world. So now, let me tell you why I love this world so much and why I chose to #SayYesToTheWorld. A World traveller don’t follow itinerary but follows only maps. I love the world not only as I travel to world but I feel that nature has imbibed a unique feature in me that I can’t be a couch potatoes.

  1. Swimming alongside colorful corals, eels and fishes in the turquoise blue water at Pattaya’s Coral Island, Thailand for the first time, and feeding the latter while their fins strike a musical chord with the water calmed me from within. Those innocent aquatic creatures living deep inside the water made me realize the beauty of God’s creation.coral island deep sea walking
  2. Tandem Paragliding at Nirvana Adventures in Kamshet, Pune made me fall in love with the world all over again. Looking at the world from a bird’s eye view made me realize how beautiful the world is. With the fear of heights in me gone forever, I realized how lighter I can be while flying in the air. It made me understand that the world is here to teach me at every step.

  3. Banana Ride at Goa taught me an important lesson about life; you don’t know how to swim but are being pushed into taking the ride because you are wearing a life jacket. You come out safely with mixed emotions as you cry and smile at the same time and comprehend that if there’s someone to push you then there’s someone to save you too! I now know exactly why I love the world and why I #SayYesToTheWorld. banana ride at alibaug
  4. Travelling in a desert on a sunny day in the summer, and realizing that you are running out of water can teach you the best lessons in life. However, suddenly finding a small hut selling chilled lemonade can bring a big relief and you can’t help but thank God for saving your life. But I prefer to say that I love the world; for there always exist some people to help you out.

  5. Soaking in the chilliness of the white marbles of Taj Mahal; one of the Seven Wonders of the World, while lazing in a shade makes you feel at home. A DSLR cannot appreciate the beauty of the Taj Mahal instead one can only appreciate the beauty of the Taj Mahal using the lens of the mind and the soul.
  6. I #SayYesToTheWorld because I can feel the splash of ocean water on my face every second whenever I do jet skiing in Goa and realize how happy a droplet of water can make me feel.

  7. A sunset I saw at one of the beaches in Kerala brought out the child in me who’s ready to grow up by correcting the mistakes.

  8. Travelling helped me make so many good friends that words alone cannot describe the love and warmth it holds.friends at goa
  9. The world is full of illusion and those illusions can make you wonder what if you were in a similar situation where I was in the Trick Eye museum in Singapore?Trick Eye Museum
  10. Sometimes you want to be like a monkey jumping from one tree to the another in search of fruits. I #SayYesToTheWorld because I feel like being a monkey after completing the longest Zipline in Wayanad Vythiri. zipline at kerala
  11. Life is full of ups and downs and the positive side is that there is always a finish line. And the relief of overcoming your fear is an other worldly experience. I overcame this fear at the Universal Studios in Singapore when I decided to board the most dangerous roller coaster ride. Initially I was skeptical whether I would be able to make it or not but the support and strength I got from my husband helped me overpower my fear.
  12. When I wanted to see the world with flower’s beautiful eyes, I went into the depths of the Garden by the bay and found that every flower has some thing to say to me, which is why I #SayYesToTheWorld.
  13. Every journey gives you a new experience and new experience gives you a new vision to see the world. I learnt this when I took a trip to Kerala. I always thought Kerala is what I see in Google but when I actually went in the interiors and explored the culture, the religion and the originality of the people, I realized one thing – What you see is not always the truth. That is why I #SayYesToTheWorld.  My travel inspiration has been always my love for exploration with open minded.
  14. I was always a simple and studious girl who didn’t know the badass world until I experienced the nightlife in the beautiful beaches in the smallest state of India – Goa. The people there were tension-free, stress-free who enjoyed life to the fullest as if there was no tomorrow. Sometimes you like that attitude of carelessness and want to tell your body, mind and the soul that everything is alright; just love yourself. In those moments I #SayYesToTheWorld. night life of goa
  15. When I went for a bungee jumping ride, I had the belief that life is full of surprises and shock; sometimes you go up in the sky and sometimes you fall back to the ground in horror. However, there finally comes a time when your life stabilizes and that’s when I #SayYesToTheWorld. bunjee jumping
  16. In our small world there are important people whom we know as our family. When I went for river rafting, it occurred to me that in order to keep our life balanced and the strength intact every member of our family needs to work hard. If a member fails, the whole family drowns in the river. That is the day I realized the world is really beautiful who teaches us so much from the very moments of life.
  17. There was a time when my world was dark but beach side peace and beauty taught me that time flows without ever stopping. On the same lines I realized that dark times will someday pass and that is when I #SayYesToTheWorld. Watching these fishermen working day and night tells me “girl get up and go “get ur own happiness from the world because the world loves you. fisher man working at beach
  18. When I tasted South Indian, North Indian, Thai, Singaporean, Arabic, and other cuisines I understood that my tongue has many papillae to savor many cuisines. Similarly my tongue has many words and I have to use it wisely because only then will it keep my taste intact otherwise everything will be tasteless.
  19. I love the world because I see many living animals who too loves us unconditionally wherever you go , be the birds or penguins or be the camouflage grasshopper. Even animals and birds says yes to world , how can I deny. Ostrich to Lion and camel to dog everyone is present because of some purpose, and that’s why I love the world.
  20. The most important thing why I love the world is because I get to travel with my family and cherish so many moments that will last forever. My daughter who is an avid traveler has already chosen her career as traveler at age of 5. She is the best reason why I love the world .Lets open up our mind and soul and explore the different arenas of life to discover ourselves as well as the world. I am thankful to lufthansa for making me realise why i #Sayyestotheworld.  Watch the video here
