What is Back to Budgeting Basics?

Picture this...

From broke with no budget to actually saving every month!

Buried underneath a pile of debt from furnishing my new home, in 2018 I lost perspective. I was so overwhelmed and too busy focusing on the day-to-day bills that I got lazy and abandoned my budget. As a result, I was living paycheck-to-paycheck, strapped for cash unable to save a dime. I was miserable because although I was making money, I had nothing to show for it. Yet, I was the same person that years prior accomplished so much with a budget but here I was wondering where all my money had gone. Although I had a pretty good track record with managing money in the past, I'm proof that being good with money is a myth. It's not about being good with money, or bad with money. It's about consistently practicing good money habits. After dusting off my old budget and getting back to basics, with a budget I feel so much more in control of my finances. Now I save consistently every month to the point where I recently hit a big goal of saving $5,000 in my emergency fund!
