Stick to your budget!
The truth is, we should all have a budget to stick to! Of course, the amount will vary for each of us, but no matter how big or small, it is still a budget! Here are some basic principles from LDS.org.
-Keep a record of your expenditures. Record and review monthly income and expenses.
Determine how to reduce what you spend for nonessentials.
-Use this information to establish a family budget. Plan what you will give as Church donations, how much you will save, and what you will spend for food, housing, utilities, transportation, clothing, insurance, and so on.
Discipline yourself to stay within your budget plan. A budget worksheet is a useful tool to help you with your plan. Print your worksheet here!
