4 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans Budget – a plan for how you will spend your money. Also known as a spending plan, a budget helps you figure out how much you can spend and save on a given income.

5 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans Live within your means! – In other words, keep the amount you spend below the amount you receive in income. A budget will help you make sure you are living within your means. It tells you what should be happening!

6 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans When creating a budget it is important to prioritize needs and wants. You may need food, but a porterhouse steak isnt needed when a sandwich will fulfill the need. A budget will help you set limits on what you should be spending on things.

7 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans Creating a budget 1. Calculate monthly income 2. List all expenses (*include savings contributions) 3. Decide how much you can and should be spending on each category. 4. Subtract expenses from income. If the number is positive, your budget is likely in good shape. If the number is negative you need to readjust your budget.

8 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans Calculate income When calculating your income use your net income (income after taxes). Include all sources of income (multiple jobs, investment income, allowances, etc.) Figure out what your total income is for a specific time period. (The most common time frame to budget for is month to month). Look at previous pay stubs – figure out what your average monthly income is. Consult your check register in your checkbook If you are a salaried employee, use your annual salary and payment frequencies to figure out your monthly income. Be honest with yourself when it comes to calculating projected income. Things happen that can reduce income (unpaid sick days, rain outs for outdoor workers, etc.) if you overestimate your income, you will run out of money before you pay all of your expenses.

9 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans INCOME Discretionary Income – The income left after all taxes and expenses have been subtracted from total income. This money you have discretion over what you can do with it. In other words, it is income that is not budgeted for a specific item. Disposable income is after taxes, discretionary income is after taxes and expenses. Pay Yourself First – this is common personal finance ideology that you should create a budget category for savings first so that you prioritize long term financial goals first.

10 Figure out savings. If you have a savings goal, figure out how much you can comfortably save each month and see how long it will take you to save. i.e. - I can save $25.00 a month towards a new gaming console. The new console costs $200.00. Therefore it will take eight months to reach the goal or 200/25 = 8. If the savings goal is to be able to buy the console in four months, you would need to save $50.00 a month to get there: 200/50=4 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans

11 Consider your monthly outflow of cash, or your monthly expenses. Recurring Expenses – Expenses that you pay regularly. Usually monthly but sometime annually. Fixed Expenses – Expenses that stay the same from month to month. (rent, mortgage, student loans, any installment loan, etc.) Variable Expenses – sometimes referred to as, living expenses, are those that fluctuate each month based on usage. (groceries, electricity, gas for your car, etc.) 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans

12 Subtract total expenses from your total income. The amount left should hopefully be a positive number. This is extra money (discretionary income) after all things are accounted for. This can be added to savings, used on other items, etc. If your expenses are higher than your income, you will need to reduce your spending or increase your income or you will run out of money. 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans

13 Budget Variance – the difference between an amount budgeted and an actual amount spent. 3.1 – Budgets & Spending Plans
