Instead of budgeting, more and more its not uncommon for households to become reliant on credit to supplement their incomes. Relying on credit instead of budgeting will lead to stress and a debt problem that can be hard to deal with. Keeping track of your spending and making the decision to start and then maintain a simple budget is a good way of taking control of your finances.

Often when people talk about the discipline required to get their finances under control they think of the word “punishment”. I believe that the word discipline comes from the word disciple which means to teach and teaching people how to budget is an important part of financial discipline. Teaching people how to take control of their finances via personal budgeting helps them to achieve financial independence which in turn can make their lives less stressful.
