Question/Answer Forum on Budgeting
What do you know about budgeting? Do you know how to budget your money? Do you have the funds in the bank to cover all your expenses?
I know I don’t always budget. I am the laziest person when it comes to budgeting. At least I was when I was in college, and beyond too. It is not easy to balance a check book or to make a budget. There is always something that you can be doing that you want to do that is so much more interesting than budgeting. Just the word budgeting gets to some people. I know this because I am one of those people.
Why a budget?

My dad always said that a budget is important. He suggested that I consult an expert if I did not want to follow his advice and gave me Dave Ramsey’s name. I would put dad’s advice on here, however, Dave Ramsey said it almost like him. So I have included his advice here.

I have listed a few sites that you can go to for more information about budgeting. Here is a couple of little excerpts from Dave Ramsey’s site about budgeting:
