How To Make A Budget

1) Make a list of everything you spend for a couple of weeks.

I spend $5 a week on trail mix,

2) For the same time period, record everything you earn and its source.

I earn $10 a week.

3) Now that you have recorded it, analyze it.

I save $5 a week.

4) Is it a good idea to have a little extra for hard times?

Yes because one can never be too sure of how things will turn out.

5) Monitor your spending.

I spend only $5 a week.
