I have started doing a budget recently and when I did it it worked well, but as things go I didn’t spend time on it and let it slide and found that some weeks had too many days for the money that I had and it didn’t stretch as far as I would have liked. To help with doing my budget I went to a three day, two hours each day, CAP Money course. You can find them at capmoney.org. They show you a really simple way of looking at your budget and a simple way of taking control of your money. I liked it so much I trained as a cap money trainer yesterday. Two of my friends would like me to take them through the course already. I am still not perfect with my budget but as I take the time to do it I know I will get better at it each time.
