FIT TIP Week 2

Once you have created your list of what you spend in a month, you can begin to organize your recorded expenses into a workable budget. Your budget should outline how your expenses measure up to your income - so you can plan your spending and limit overspending. Be sure to factor in expenses that occur regularly but not every month, such as car maintenance.

 

TIP: Include a savings category - aim to save 10 to 15 percent of your income.
