Here’s How to Stick to Your Budget
Putting together a budget is easy: the harder part is sticking to it. The key to this is to go back to step one and keep track of your spending. Each week, check your finances to make sure you are staying within your budget. You can do this by using a cash, or envelope system. You can also keep track with a software program, or you can simply use pen and paper to keep track of your spending.
No matter how you do it, it’s important to find a system that works for you and stick to it.
