Creating a personal budget is an effective way to help you live debt free. It aids you in adjusting your habits from spending to saving and provides you with a guideline to help you pay down interest. Now that is something worth pursuing! Need some more reasons beyond these first two? OK, here are eight more:
3. You will be in control of your money as opposed to your money being in control of you.
4. It lets you determine, almost immediately, if you are living below your means. You spend less money than you earn and remove from your life the worry about paying your bills.
These days there are lots of people unaware that they are living beyond their means. Accessibility to easy credit and charge cards has fogged the consumer’s view of his or her own situation. Most people need to begin creating a personal budget just to get them back to financial health.
5. Another benefit is to help you easily spell out your own spending guidelines; ones you determine, not those that some financial planner or counselor has set down for you.
6. Puts an instrument in place for savings and debt reduction.
7. Effective use of a personal spending plan leads to the elimination of credit card debt, enabling you to pay your mortgage off faster.
8. You will have a cash buffer in case of crisis or emergency by applying spending guidelines that help with smart ways to save money.
9. It gets you out of financial strife, keeping you free of financial worry.
10. Finally, opportunities open that you never considered before. What will you do once you are spending less time worrying about the bills and covering the interest on car payments, credit cards, and mortgage debt? How will you spend your retirement years knowing that you are in sound financial shape and that you don’t have to be concerned about debt and bills any longer?
