Basics of Budgeting: A Step-by-Step Guide for Financial Success ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Welcome back to Trikl Money Mentor! This time we'll be diving into the basics of budgeting ๐Ÿ’ธ.

Budgeting can seem like a daunting task, but it's a crucial step towards financial success ๐Ÿ’ช. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you master the basics of budgeting:

  1. Track your income: The first step to creating a budget is knowing how much money you have coming in each month. This includes any income from your job, freelance work, or other sources. ๐Ÿ’ผ

  2. List your expenses: Make a list of all your monthly expenses, including fixed costs like rent, utilities, and car payments, as well as variable costs like groceries, dining out, and entertainment. ๐Ÿ“

  3. Categorize your expenses: Group your expenses into categories like housing, transportation, food, and entertainment. This will help you see where your money is going and identify areas where you can cut back. ๐Ÿ“Š

  4. Use the 50-30-20 budgeting method to allocate 50% of your income towards necessities, 30% towards discretionary spending, and 20% towards savings and investing. Use the Trikl app to manage contributions to your budget based on your income. ๐Ÿ’ป

Remember, budgeting is not about depriving yourself of things you enjoy, but rather about being intentional with your spending so you can achieve your financial goals. ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐ŸŽฏ
