Do you keep a budget?

I am a budget nerd. I update it everyday and plan the budgets out months in advance.

  • Yes we do. I keep track of mine on a money management program that keeps track of my bills and deposits, gives cash flow forecasts, reconciles online bank accounts, and tells me how close I am on my budget. I can also look back and get a spending pattern report, amortization reports, etc.
