That word, that we all need to do but probably avoid most of the times. Budgeting is almost like dieting, you know you should do it, you feel like a good person when you do it, but you don’t always stick to it – and at the end of the month, wonder where all your money has gone.
I’m a numbers girl, always have been. I’ve always loved Maths and still do. However, that didn’t quite translate into me being good with money. After graduation, on my first graduate job, I thought I was so grown-up with a real job and a real salary. I thought to myself, ‘ah, I won’t be skint again like when I was a student!’. After a few months, I realised how wrong I was. You see, we tend to spend more than we think we spend. And this is precisely why at the end of the month we’re left wondering where did it all go?!
