The other “B” word – #BUDGET

A household budget is easier than you think

I found a great article on preparing a household budget that I know you’ll want to read. It really doesn’t get any easier than this. The hardest part is getting started!

When you spend more than you take in, eventually it will catch up to you. It doesn’t matter if you make $20,000 a year, $200,000 a year, or $2,000,000 a year. Even wealthy people get into serious financial trouble! You see it on the news all the time. Whenever I hear about a celebrity or sports figure in dire financial straits, the first thing that comes to mind is how can anyone spend through that much money? Well, it is human nature to spend more than you have.

A budget is a necessary roadmap that shows you when you’re veering off course. If you don’t prepare and follow a budget, you’re sure to get lost in the woods of financial trouble. Don’t get lost… prepare for the journey, and even plan for the detours you are bound to encounter. Everyone does.

The short article attached:  http://www.money-zine.com/Financial-Planning/Debt-Consolidation/Family-Budget-Basics/ is well worth the read. Take easy steps to analyze your spending habits and prepare to achieve a life with less stress, and more contentment. You can do it!

All my best!
