How to Make a Budget
1. Make a list of everything you spend for a couple of weeks.
I spend about $75-$100 every two weeks. Food, gas, and misc.
Theater-$8.50, Taco Bell-$2.87, Netflix-$8.53, Hardees-$5.92, Bowling-$8.23, Redbox-$4.80, Shell Service Station-$21.00
2. For the same time period, record everything you earn and its source.
I got paid last Friday. I got it from my job with Nash Rocky Mount Public Schools.
3. Now that you have recorded, analyze it.
4. It is a good idea to have a little extra for hard times.
Absolutely. You never know what is going to happen.
5. Monitor your spending.
I will try not to eat out as much.
