Journal Response 1 – Real Town Budget I have learned a good bit about budgets with this project. I defiantly didn’t think that I would be responsible for all these bills and responsibilities. I feel that the pros or advantages of the budget would be that it organizes your finances and makes sure you have money to pay all your bills each month. It helps you see where your money is going and if you need to cut back or add to different areas of your budget. One example would be if you are spending most of your monthly income and decide to have a child you will have to look at your budget and see where you can cut back to include all the expenses of children. I like the idea of budgeting for vacations, and your future. These are important. The cons would be having the self discipline to stick to the budget. I love to shop and if I were out with friends and saw things that I wanted I think it would make me mad if I didn’t have the money in the budget to get it. Another con would be if you don’t account for all your spending then you might find yourself in money trouble.
