You will need to track your spending and stop when you have reached the limit in each category. This is when you start budgeting. If you do not stick to your categories, then you will not stick to your budget. If you end up spending more in one category than you had planned, you can transfer money into that category to cover it from another category. For example, you budgeted Ūꯠ for food for one month and you ended up spending 趚, then you can move โ from your entertainment category to cover it. In order to do this you will need to check on your spending every day to see how much you have left.
Step Two: Limit Your Needs to 50 Percent of Your After_Tax Income. Now go back to your budget. How much do you spend on "needs" each month, things like groceries, housing, utilities, health insurance, car payment, and car insurance? According to Warren and Tyagi and their 50ቺተ rule, the amount that you spend on these things should total no more than 50 percent of your after_tax pay.
