Chapter 5: Changing Spending Habits
Budgeting is about learning and making adjustments to help you get where you want to be. After you look over how you're spending money and compare it to your goals, make the adjustments you need to help you meet your aspirations.
Watch the Changing Spending Habits video to get the information you need to make adjustments to your budget.
Find Your Budget Rhythm
A weekly allowance is a great way to treat yourself while getting disciplined over your new budget. Consistency is key. Once you land on a budget that works, stick to it. And, if you overspend one week, don't overcompensate the following week. Just stay with your plan.
Remember, this isn't about being perfect - cut yourself some slack and do your best.
