The word “budget” conjures up distasteful things, like diets. Most of us hate counting calories, but we just want to fit into that cute little black dress. So, we deprive ourselves and chew on celery sticks, standing hungry outside the ice cream store.
Like it or not, money sustains our dreams. When there’s not enough, we feel like we’re going to starve. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Think of a budget as a health plan for your little black purse. With some effort, it’s a piece of cake to get your wallet’s waistline under control.
