                Quick Budgeting Tips

1. Review your personal finances every day. Ask yourself, is this plan still right for me?
2. Pay yourself first. Put 10% of your paycheck into an account you don’t touch before you
pay anything else.
3. Separate your money into different categories using jars or envelopes for the different
expenses you plan for. It is much harder emotionally to spend money out of a jar marked
“rent” than it is to swipe a debit card.
4. Plan the upcoming week’s expenses at least 72 hours in advance
5. Leave your debit card at home and carry the money you need with you. If you need extra
cash, pay with your credit card and pay off the debt from your emergency fund the same day.
