    happens to us.

  • Win the lottery
  • Big bonus

Spend Less Than You Make!
  • What is a budget to you?
  • A four letter word.
  • Something that Ive tried, but cant follow.
  • Something that limits my fun.
  • Something that limits my freedom.
  • A tool?
  • A tool that helps you spend less than you make.
  • A tool to help you achieve you goals.

26
A budget
  • A budget can be anything you want it to be, as
    long as it works, and you know for a fact that
    you spend less than you make every month.
  • A budget is knowing where your money has been so
    that you can tell it where to go.
