Financial Nuggets - 2

The purpose of a budget is to help your money to grow. It is to assist you to have your necessities, and to the extent possible, your other desires. It is to enable you to obtain your most cherished desires by defending them from your casual wishes. Like a bright light in a dark cave, your budget shows up the leaks in your money and enables you to stop them and control your expenses for definite and gratifying purposes.

Any thoughts or comments?

Sharon Rose: Thanks for your comment. Budgets are definitely a must. I'm not sure why thet get such a bad wrap but hopefully blogs like ours will change that perception.

jpkittie: LOL. Used bubblegum! Hey, at least they're getting filled;-).
