Creating the perfect budget

on Sun, 11/04/2012 - 09:10

I have been hearing more and more people saying they cannot do a budget (not just people who feels they can't, but also people who have been done relatively well in their savings), ultimately, everybody feels that there is not enough savings (which is a good thing).

A lot of people have very negative thinking on budgeting. "Cut backs, tracking every penny and cannot have fun anymore..." are what they have in mind when they heard of budgeting, but really, budgeting is about figuring out how much you can spend after your bills.
