Did you learn this stuff in school?

Me neither.

Just like cooking, managing your money is a life skill & takes a bit of guidance, a recipe book & some practice.

What are your reasons for not budgeting before?

Do you think that you only need to budget when you're struggling with income?

Or maybe what's the point of budgeting if you haven't got much money?

Most people worry it will take up so much time & they haven't got enough as it is.

There's a huge chance that you simply don't know where to start or how to find the right fit for you.

Without budgeting, or having a decent plan, you'll just live paycheck to paycheck. Most people do & most people hate it.

Living for today is fun & who knows what the future will bring right? 

BUT life can be more fulfilling when we've got a bit of direction, a dream, a vision & some desires for what we really want. 

I dreamed of living in a gorgeous house in France but never really thought it would happen. I doubted myself. I was scared. I thought "one day maybe, wouldn't it be lovely" but "I'll never be able to afford it".

You see, money mindset issues affect all of us!

Like nature, your life has seasonal shifts.

Money underpins much of our lives so it's a delicate balance of living for today & planting seeds for tomorrow.

I get asked a lot, "How do I get to feel in control of my money?"  

In short, to feel that way is to practically apply some semblance of control!

Wherever you are I'm right here with you.

Monthly Budget

If the thought of doing a cash flow plan is just all too much, let's dial it back to a super simple monthly budget.

This is based on the 50/30/20 principle where around half your household income is spent on your essentials, around 30% is spent on the things you want & 20% is allocated to a mixture of savings, investments & debt payoff.

Portion control for your money is a really simple way to categorise it so that it makes sense. 

If your ratio is 70% or more going out on your essentials leaving you with not much to play with or much to save, you will have some work to do in both
