Real Estate Attorney Discusses: Why Start Budgeting?, Rochester, New York

Is budgeting a burden or a best friend? It can be a monumental financial aid, guiding you to achieving both personal and professional goals. Here, Steve Butcher Sr., Esq., a dedicated real estate attorney in Rochester, NY, discusses the importance of budgeting to reach financial milestones.

A Real Estate Attorney Explains Why You Should Start Budgeting

Budgeting Brings Organization

Creating a budget lets you focus on what money you have and where it goes. First, write down on one side of the page the amount of money you have to work with for the month. On the other side, list all the expenses and amounts you know you must pay, such as rent or a mortgage, a car payment, utility bills, groceries, and insurance. Finally, write down your other expenses, such as entertainment costs and gift purchases. Seeing your income and how you spend it is the first step in taking control of your finances.  

Budgeting Supports Goal-Setting

Once you see where your money goes, you can plan where you want it to go. Are you dreaming of building or closing on a home, starting a business, or sending children to college? Include a line for monthly savings in your budget and you’ll move closer to converting your dream into reality. 

Budgeting Leads to Peace of Mind
