There is a reason I’ve called my series Budgeting 101. It’s meant to be a very simple, Cliffs Notes version on budgeting.
Here’s what we’ve covered:
- Budgeting 101: Start By Tracking Your Expenses
- Budgeting 101: The Guts to Change
- Budgeting 101: Cutting Expenses
- Budgeting 101: Boosting Income
And now I leave you with additional resources…. Homework, if you will. I simply can’t begin to go as in depth as I wish I could on this subject, so I hope that you’ll take the time to check out these fabulous resources:
