    Often people think of a budget as a negative, something that will restrict them, but it’s all about having a plan for your money to maximize it use. Communication with spouse and kids is key to budgeting as well. Great tips!

  2. One major annoyance I have come across lately relates to explaining to people that we’re on a budget. Many people I have had this conversation with respond with some sort of pity as if we must be in dire financial straits. The assumption is that we need to watch our spending because we don’t have enough money, and the reality is nearly the opposite. We have a great income and live on a budget to make sure we are using our income to its maximum potential toward achieving our goals.

    My budget tip is to not let outsiders have influence on your budgeting & behavior. Hike your own hike – Live your own life.

      That’s a great point, Ryan. The word “budget” has so many negative connotations and implications attached, but those of us who use one faithfully know the truth.

      And your tip is crucial for anyone forming a budget. At the end of the day, it is a plan to get you from point A to B, and if you form your plan based upon others’ thoughts and ideas, you’ll end up at the wrong destination.

  3. I like to refer to “staying in” as “partying in.” 🙂 You can have a damn good time at home on a budget. Have friends bring a few beers, grill some hamburgers, and enjoy free music on Pandora or Spotify. Boom, magic. We also saved money by making our own household items like all-purpose cleaner, candles, air fresheners, laundry soap, and more.
