The Benefits of Budgeting

We’ve all heard that we need a budget. You must put a budget to make your money work best for you and not feel broke. It’s the most challenging part of adulting, and without it, you may feel like you’re just not a grown-up. But there are benefits to budgeting.

Good Debt vs Bad Debt

To set your future goals, whether small or long-term goals, your budget will help you meet them. If you want to take a trip to Cabo for your 50th Birthday, saving money each month is ideal for preparing for that goal.

Good Debt vs Bad Debt

Having a budget where you control every penny (often called a zero-based budget) will stop overspending in its tracks. Having a budget doesn’t mean there’s no fun spending going on.

Stop Overspending

Were you always poor, never having money for a special toy or treat? Did you hear things like, “money doesn’t grow on trees” or “We aren’t made of money.”

Budgets Teach Children About Personal Finance 

Knowing where your expenses lie and where you can save or cut back to put a little more into your retirement investments makes you excited for the future.

Saving for Retirement

Not only will having a budget help you save up your emergency fund, but it will also let you know where you can cut back in the event of said emergency.

Prepare for Emergencies

Having a budget is a roadmap for how you choose to spend your money. It helps to keep up with your spending and control overspending. It’ll give you a way to make the values and goals you strive for most come to light.
