When it comes to your money, your budget is the most foundational piece. Having a solid plan for your cash flow lets you save for goals, invest for the long-run, and keep your debt and credit score in check… yet for many, building a budget is the hardest part!

In this webinar, we’ll talk about best practices for getting started with budgeting. We’ll also discuss how to create systems to keep yourself organized and accountable over time…without tracking every single penny.

Key Takeaways from this Webinar:

  • Traditional budgets don’t typically account for all the ways that people spend and save their money
  • Our usual systems of managing income and expenses can result in lack of budget clarity
  • Instead, consider breaking your expenses into recurring bills, day to day spending, and non-recurring and random expenses
  • Giving each category its own system and automating wherever possible can help you stick to the budget over time, with minimal effort
