We have gone through an initial budgeting process together.  A complete budget is meant to give you financial control. It is meant to help you plan not only for your income in-flows but also to regulate, or “flat-line” your expenses making them more manageable. Accept that your budget will change each and every month! Your targets will get adjusted, you will spend more on certain items one month than the next, you will constantly re-evaluate your priorities in the context of income. Rolling with, or adjusting, your budget is simply a good budget practice. Don’t be afraid of change, a complete budget will help you embrace and manage change more effectively! I’ve mentioned this before … make your budget work for you!
