Your Personal Budget
Know Where Your Money Goes
If you want a clear picture of your spending compared to your income, you need a budget. A budget will help you take control of your personal finances so your money can work harder for you. A budget will also help:
- see where your money goes
- plan for the future
- become more financially secure
- identify poor money habits
- reduce financial stress
A budget can show you where you may be spending too much money and spot expenses you can eliminate or trim to free up money to put towards your goals.
So, what are your financial goals?
- Create an emergency fund?
- Save to buy that camp you have been dreaming of?
- Get back on your feet and pay off debt?
- Put more away for retirement?
- Set money aside for a vacation?
- Save for kids’ college?
- Something else?
Write them down! It makes them more real.
