There are some questions I need to ask before I can tell you how to manage your resources and save
1) How much do spend on transportation monthly
2) How much do you spend on feeding and other expenses monthly

If you earn less than 100k and you reside in Lagos and single,better start preparing for life in the village because reality is beginning to set in and I need not say much about that and yes,to your question,check well those people earning less than 40k and living in Lagos are spirits. grin

With your 80k salary, you can spend the money as follows
20k for foodstuffs
10k for your personal expenses
10k for your mum's upkeep
That is 40k. Then you save 40k monthly

Do you live in Lagos?

I bet, no.

All these calculations no dey work for Lagos nah.

You'll be earning 200k and spending with all sense of prudency yet you won't have 20k in savings at the end of the month.

The thing be like JuJu. grin



People go dey work for island dey collect 250k yet dem go still dey live for Pako Estate.

You know how many people dey live for General Paint, Kuramo , Jakande and Maroko endless shanties?

Half of the islanders live in these holes and earn way more than 100k.

Even to buy one polo na problem.

Who born you make you fit chop belleful for Lagos? Can you afford it?

Not just ghosts, dem be thief. They're pilfering from one purse or the other or living off someone somewhere.

You can't earn less than 100k and be visible in Lagos.

Expenses go hide you.

You are a bad spender...two things that gulp money in Lagos are transportation fare and rent...if you are not paying rent then half of your problems is solved. With 80k salary as a single guy, who is not paying rent in Lagos, you supposed save atleast 40k every month.

80k may not be enough since you are not the only one who is dependent on that money.

You can try your best to save 40k monthly and spend the rest for yourself, Mum and sister, don't forget, transport is inclusive .
