Getting Your Share (July, 2012)
July 1, 2012Ready for your Budget Health Check-Up?
Having trouble paying your bills, making ends meet? It’s time to take a look at your budget. Are you going to get a clean bill of health or will you require emergency care? I have included a budget questionnaire below so you can get a diagnosis. Do you know how much you’re spending?
When you answer the monthly budget questionnaire below, you will probably be surprised to learn you have been spending a lot more than you thought.
Taking this budget health check-up will ultimately save you money because it will encourage you to start making some changes in your spending! When you go through this list you will pay attention, for the first time for most of you, to exactly what you are spending your money on. When my divorce clients fill out a form similar to this, they don’t like doing it. It makes them realize what they are actually spending.
A suggestion! Be honest with yourself and take your time answering this questionnaire. This could be the beginning of some money saving opportunities for you. Good Luck! Just think the money you start saving here could become part of your retirement account.
