A Month Before

If you are planning on starting a budget, you need to budget in advance. For you to stay on top of your budget; you need to budget a month in advance. Once you know what the plan is for the next month, set a realistic budget for that month. Every month is going to have different events, appointments and a lot more.

Budget To Zero

This means that you are tracking every dollar or euro you earn and giving it a spot in your budget until you have no money left over. As an example, you earn $2,500 a month. After budgeting all of your fixed expenses and any other extra’s, you shouldn’t have any money to spare. This can show you where your money is going and you will be giving every dollar you earn a purpose.

Needs vs Wants

You need to establish the difference between Needs and Wants in your household. Needs are things that you need to live and are crucial for your own well being (Food, Rent and Debt Repayment). Needs should be always in your budget. Wants everything else that you don’t need to live are put into this category. You need to factor these things in too.

Prioritize Debt Repayment

People start budgets to save for a holiday or a car. In reality, anything other than debt repayment should be put on the back burner. Prioritizing Debt Repayment will save you money on interest and late fees, in the long run. You need to make sure you at least make the minimum payments because if you don’t, your credit score will be affected on the 30th day.
