How do you know how much money you have and whether you’re spending it on the things that matter to you? How do you make sure you’re paying down your debts at the right pace? By doing a budget.
In this video recorded from a Google Hangout, nationally syndicated personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary explains how to do a budget for your finances, walking through the spreadsheet that she recommends and answering questions about how to make it work for you.
As promised during the discussion, here is a link to the sample budget spreadsheet. The interactive version is available with Michelle's book, "The 21 Day Financial Fast."
Michelle also introduces you to Grumpy the monkey. You’ll have to watch the video to find out what he’s all about.
@SingletaryM I just passed my #financialfast book on to a friend and bought another as a gift. Money well spent.
On March 5 at noon, join Michelle for a live Google Hangout Q&A where she will talk about how to make your budget and answer your questions on creating a budget that lets you pay down your debts and achieve your goals. RSVP on Google Plus at: https://plus.google.com/b/103778755977163571576/ev...
