If you’re like me, you can sit down for hours at a time and enjoy looking over your budget. If you’re normal, you have neither the time nor the inclination to spend a perfectly good evening crunching numbers. I’m assuming that most people are ‘normal’ (at least in terms of budgeting) and for that reason, I have broken the process into seven, doable steps, so that by this time next week you will finally be on a budget.
The other day I had a good laugh when I came across this article from USA Today; the title reads: House approves $7 billion budget cut. In terms of the US budget, $7 billion just doesn’t seem newsworthy. This year the White House’s proposed outlays (spending) are $3,721 billion; cut $7 billion and you cut less than .2% of the total expenses. C’mon, laugh with me.
