Looking to having your financial situation in order isn’t that sexy but it does assist in freeing up the mind and the left hand side of the brain to concentrate on other priorities in your relationship, and freeing your mind from the daily grind of managing your budget can do wonders for other areas of your relationship, particularly intimacy.
Reviewing your incomings and expenses on a regular basis can be time consuming but once understood and the actions you and your partner need to take to keep your expenses within budget and under control, the sense of calm can do wonders for your relationship. Take time to look at your entire financial picture and what is anticipated throughout the year – particularly major expenses.
- Create or Evaluate Your Budget:
Budgeting is simply the process of allocating expenses on a regular basis. A good budget is simple, realistic and clear. It builds in some personal control for each family member. In creating a realistic budget, focus first on the most basic needs like food, housing and clothing. Second, focus on what you would like to purchase in the future.
The goal is to construct a workable budget, to establish how much income you can count on, to outline your expenditures by category and to estimate how much money you need for each category.
