single-parent
Having a family budget is essential to avoid overspending. Many families shy away from making budgets because they fear what they write on paper will be too restrictive, and, as a result, some needs won’t be met and certain goals won’t be pursued. This is, however, far from being the truth. Without a carefully planned budget, overspending comes natural. When asked about what the money is spent on, many feel tempted to say that all was spent on necessities and nothing else. A simple writing down of their expenses would bring up some surprises; small amounts spent on coffee, new hobbies, items never used that end up in the back of the garage, add up, eating up the profit margin all families should enjoy from their monthly income.…
