Plan Instead of Panic _ But this is no time to panic. It just the time to find out the truth. As one major advertiser tells us, even if it is not good news, it is good to know! When you figure out where your money is going, you will be able to fix it. If you have no idea where your money is going, the problem will just get worse.
Budgeting Worksheet Tip : Goals_Based _ Most budgeting programs don't accommodate for your financial goals, they simply look back at the previous month to help you determine your spend for the current month. That is not good budgeting. If you have a cash flow problem, then it will just perpetuate into future months and you won't even realize it's happening. Furthermore, you are not creating a plan to achieve your goals. An excellent budgeting worksheet will accommodate for your financial goals and help you determine what you can afford or what it will take to meet those goals. It will take into account your income, current debt, expenses and savings to help you generate a plan to meet your goals.
