The month of October is a 5 week month which means most people get an extra paycheck. While this is awesome, it makes me think a lot about my budget. How can I make that extra check go farther. I am going to be running a series for the month of October called Beating the Budget! Let’s get together, pull out that scary fanged pile of bills and do this thing! Lets beat that budget and gain control over our money. I am really excited about this series and I hope you will be too.
What Will I Cover?
- Why Budget? – “Seriously, there is never enough money so why bother?” This is what I will talk about on week one!
- What Comes First? – “I have this huge pile of bills and the money doesn’t add up. What do I pay first?” We will discuss this a bit. I will tell you what I believe what must be a priority in any budget.
- What about Debt? – “Seriously, I am drowning in debt. I pay more for debt that for living my life.” Let’s talk about debt and destroying it. I have learned a few things that could help here.
- Why Should I have an Emergency Fund? – “I am barely making it each week and you want me to have money set aside? HA!” I am a very strong advocate for an emergency fund. I will go into how this works and what yours should look like.
