How to Make a Budget
1. Make a list of everything you spend for a couple of weeks.
I spend about $20 on lunch a week, $30 a week on gas, and $20-$40 on misc. ($120-$140 every two weeks)
2. For the same, time period, record everything you earn and its source.
$70 a week from Mom for lunch and gas.
3. Now that you have recorded, analyze it.
4. It is a good idea to have a little extra for hard times.
Yes, because its good to have a little extra incase something happens.
5. Monitor your spending.
I need to work on just throwing my money away on food I don't really need and games.
