I know probably no one has told you this lately but budgeting can actually be fun. Sometimes even really fun! Essentially what you are doing is ensuring you have enough money to achieve your life goals (do I hear a ‘yes please’?), prepare so you will be ok if the unexpected happens (who doesn’t want piece of mind like that?) and plan for the future (so you’ll be financially fit no matter what the future holds; studying, marriage, kids, retirement).
Creating a budget is really planning your future as you want it to be, what could be more fun and exciting than that?!?
Have you ever thought budgeting could actually be fun? Do you feel excited to budget so that you can afford to achieve your life goals? Do you dread planning for the future due to lack of money or do you think that with careful planning you could ensure you are comfortable during all life stages?
