Budgeting is simply the process of allocating expenses on a regular basis. A good #budget is simple, realistic and clear. It builds in some personal control for each family member. In creating a realistic budget, focus first on the most basic needs like food, housing and clothing. Second, focus on what you would like to purchase in the future.
The goal is to construct a workable budget, to establish how much income you can count on, to outline your expenditures by category and to estimate how much money you need for each category.
There are many online and free reference sites to assist in this process. The key is to create a budget and to then continually review progress. Stay within the parameters that you’ve set and keep a buffer for those unexpected expenses.
Budgeting is a continuous process of reviewing incoming and outgoings. It requires focus and steady and careful application. Creating awareness and then building the skills of budgeting is an important life skill. It won’t happen immediately , but over time results and a sense of control will come. Stick with it.
