The Truth About Budgeting

Myth: I don't have time to work on a budget.
Truth: You don't have time not to make a budget!

The dreaded B-word—budget. Unfortunately, the word budget has received a bum rap. It is basically just a plan. When you budget, you're spending on paper, on purpose, before the month begins. But many people view a budget as a straightjacket that keeps them constrained. Freedom and budget just don't seem to go together.

However, when you see that a budget is just spending your money with intention, you'll actually experience more freedom than before. Many people say they find even more money when they create a realistic budget and stick with it.

Here are some pointers:

  • Give your budget three to four months to start working. It won't be perfect the first time you do it.
  • Spend every dime on paper before the month begins.
  • Overfund your groceries category. Most people underfund this category.
  • If married, create your budget along with your spouse. It needs to be a joint decision.

When you are spending your money on purpose, you will be on your way to a total money makeover. You will be on the road to changing your family tree forever!
