On Your Own: Brushing Off The Budget [VIDEO]

Brushing off your budget is the one thing that you DON'T want to do when you are living on your own. Yeah, it's fun to finally be free from your parents' house, but you'll quickly see how quickly money disappears...

When it comes time to pay the bills, pay your rent, or shop for groceries, you hopefully have had time to put money aside for these things. If not, you'll have to go to the next available source, which is usually your parents, or other family members, or friends...

If you don't want to end up in a situation where you need to ask others for money, the best thing you can do is stay on track with a budget (I know, it's not 'fun,' but neither is being broke!)

Still not convinced? Here are 5 Reasons for a Budget. And, if you're wondering how to budget, try a budgeting app to make it easy! 

Last week, seniors at Cony High School learned how to use a budget, and why it's important, as they will soon be moving on to the next part of their lives.  

Take care, and good luck to the senior class at Cony High School!
