Budgeting is Survival

I didn’t grow up in a family that prioritize budgeting. As a result, we struggled frequently because our finances weren’t always in order. My current roommate’s grandfather took us out to eat, and we discussed our post-college plans.

We talked about salaries vs. hourly pay, careers choices that we wanted, and where we saw ourselves going in the near future. This conversation was very useful, and it made me realize how different generations view post-college life.

During spring break, I plan on going around handing around my resumes to places that I hope to work, preparing to work in order to pay the bills. It’s important to learn how to budget as soon as possible. My budgeting allows me to afford neccessary meals, help my academics, and make schooling less stressful.

Simply by keeping a record of expenses and when the next check is coming, is very helpful.
