What is household budget management? Is it keeping track of all your expenses so that at the end of the month you can see where all your money went? So you know what expenses need to be curtailed, or eliminated? We don't think so!
What good does it do to find out, after the fact, that you really can't afford that new TV you just bought! Or that you spent too much money eating out, going to the movies, etc! That there isn't enough money available to make your car payment! Pay your electric bill! Buy food! By using the resources presented here we hope you can gain the knowledge and tools necessary to properly set up and manage your household budget.
First you need to find out and what it should do for you. A budget is like a set of instructions. Just as you could hardly expect to be able to fly an
aircraft without instructions, you shouldn't try to control your budget without some guide (instructions) to adhere to.
Setting up a simple budget like Dick and Jane's sample budget will provide you with an easy to manage plan to guide you through the process of paying your bills, purchasing needed items, putting away a few dollars in savings, etc.
