Being able to understand what level of income and expenses are going in and out of your savings accounts is a critical first step in achieving any financial goal. Before you embark on a saving/investment program you need to know whether you have a cash-flow surplus, ie are your expenses are less than your income . If you don’t have a cash-flow surplus then the process of understanding your cash-flow should allow you to identify areas where you could cut back on.
