there are a lot of people who are unable to stick to their budgets
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 16, 2016
National Debt Relief recently shared in an article published November 30, 2016 one of the most common mistakes consumers make when they start to plan their financial budgets. The article titled “Budgeting Problems? It’s Because You’re Doing It All Wrong” aims to help people improve their finances by fixing their budgets.
The article starts off by highlighting the fact that there are a lot of people who are unable to stick to their budgets. They start off with one meticulously planned monthly budget that they have tailored to fit their expenses. However, it is not unusual for consumers to start noticing that their budget is already way off weeks into their execution. This can be caused by unexpected expenses that was not part of a monthly budget.
With this problem in mind, the article start to point out one of the biggest mistakes consumers make when putting together a budget. The problem is how people approach their budget timeline as they are conditioned to think within the confines of a per-monthly basis. This is because the pay as well as the payments all revolve within that time frame.
The article explains that when people start thinking and strictly planning their budget in terms of months, it’s practically guaranteed that they will encounter a tough time with their finances. The main reason for this is that unexpected events are not confined on a monthly basis plus the fact that there are basically five months out of the year where there is some sort of a major holiday that will cost consumers something.
The article shares that a better way to budget is to stop focusing narrowly on month-to-month but look instead for overall trends over a span of six months to a year. After maybe six months, people would be able to see their spending trends. After a year, they will have a very good idea what their typical month looks like. This is when consumers can begin budgeting more accurately.
