What about buying a new house or car? If you don’t have a budget, you won’t know how much you can pay for a house or a car payment. Make that mistake and you’ll get a visit from repo man or you’ll find yourself in foreclosure. Your budget gives you freedom to make an informed decision.
How about saving for retirement? Unfortunately most of us don’t consider retirement savings until we’re into our forties or even fifties. Imagine if only we’d been smarter, had a budget, and started contributing toward our retirement when we were 10, 20, or 30 years younger?
Having a budget doesn’t limit you. It gives you freedom to make informed financial decisions, allows you to use your money more wisely, and achieve your financial goals more quickly and easily.
