What’s the purpose of a budget you may ask?
Budgeting helps you put your money to work in the best way possible towards your financial goals. Budgeting can help you stay on top of your monthly and yearly finances, save for the future, get and stay out of debt which all in turn helps you relieve stress!
We cannot track every unexpected expense that comes up in our budget but what we can do is take control of our finances by tracking our income. Once the expenses are tracked, you can find where to make adjustments in terms of spending or saving. Mapping out your expenses can help you pay off debt and reduce future expenses.
