Hey everyone,

How are you all doing this week? I’m doing alright. I can’t wait until Fall time gets here.

Last week, we discussed about creating a budget.

However, there was a concept I forgot to mention on the last post (it goes in the final steps of budgeting). I completely apologize about that.

Financial experts call this concept zero-based budgeting.

What does this term mean?

It means that you should not have a remaining balance on your budget for every month. All of the money you earn each month should go towards something.

Click the PDF link below to see my zero based budget for an example of what I’m talking about.

If I have money left over, where could that money go towards?

If you have any questions about “zero-based budgeting” please let me know.

Tomorrow, we will discuss how to reconcile your budget once each month is over.
