Budget to Save

 

Get a Handle on Income and Expenses

Using Gabby’s monthly budget (or another) as an example, complete your own below, or download a spreadsheet or PDF of the blank monthly budget sheet. Identify changes you can make to increase your income or decrease your expenses. Then develop a new budget that includes more savings. Be sure to make changes that you can live with from month to month.
