20 Days of Prep: Day 11

Aspect: Map budget for Jan., try to predict what you can and cushion variables

Feeling like these past two days have been too fun and frivolous? Fine, we’ll give you a more difficult one. Budgeting. That’s right. The dreaded B word. At the end of each month, you’ll find a budgeting sheet. This is one that I would recommend filling in monthly.

Today is the day to fill in January’s budget. Since it’s the end of the year, now is the perfect time to assess what worked and what didn’t work last year. Which months were great? What made them great? Which months were bad? What can we do to change that this year?

Take some time today to fill in your budget. Maybe you don’t finish it today, that’s okay, but have it filled in before January starts.
