Aside from using coupons, setting up a budget is one of the most important things you can do to set yourself up for future financial freedom.  You can coupon and coupon until your savings are over $10,000 a year but if you just wast those savings by not planning your budget, well, it just makes all that hard word be for nothing.

Take a moment this week and go through some of my previous budgeting posts.  The week between Christmas and New Years has become mine and my husband’s tradition of setting up our budget for the new year ahead.  Getting started is never fun, but it sure makes the rest of the year stress free.

  • This comes at the perfect time, once the holidays are over I think everyone really starts to look at their budget. Luckily for me, I stumbled upon the Dave Ramsey Book the Total Money Makeover just before the holidays and my husband and I have started taking a few steps towards budgeting. We always looked into how to save money when we went shopping, but not how to utilize our money in all aspects. I really like the 52 Weeks Challenge, it really sets you up for success all year, and not just month to month. Thank you Cindy. I hope you, everyone at Living Rich With Coupons, and your readers all had a great holiday!
