Budgeting Your Money Will Save Your Sanity

When I was in college, Lord knows the little money I had, whether from my on-campus jobs or through moms, went to pay a phone bill, a credit card bill, and then was spent on something extra random: shoes I didn’t need that I liked, junk food, freak-em-dresses, etc. If I do that mess now, I’ll be living out of a suitcase at the subway station. Having someone help me understand how to budget my dollars and cents (a class on it would have helped), I would have made better choices out the gate and not had to beg a sister to help me pay a credit card bill because I thought I had more money in my account than I actually did. Managing your dollars and cents, even knowing how to a little, will help you keep your dollars and sense.
