What is a Budget?

A budget is like a plan for your money. It helps you see how much money you have coming in and how much you're spending on things like food, rent, or fun activities. Think of it as your money's roadmap, showing you where you can save more or if you can afford something extra. It's really useful for making sure you don't run out of money and can start saving up for something big, or just to have a little extra for emergencies.

3 things to know about a Budget

  1. Creating a budget can help you find extra money you didn’t know you had. By tracking your expenses, you might discover you're spending a lot on things you don't really need, and you can save that money instead.
  2. Budgets aren't just for saving money; they can also help you plan for fun stuff. Setting aside a little money for entertainment or hobbies can make sure you enjoy your hard-earned cash without overspending.
  3. Many people who start budgeting are surprised to find out how small changes, like making coffee at home instead of buying it, can add up to big savings over time. This extra money can go toward paying off debt faster or building up your savings.
