The tools we use to budget

Chances are at some stage you’ve probably googled ‘effective budget template’. We all want the perfect tool to help us achieve our financial goals... But there’s so many options out there, and it’s pretty overwhelming. Inspired by You’re In Good Company, who talked about budgeting a couple of weeks ago, we talk through finding the right budget fit for you in Get Started Investing this week.

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to budgeting, just like anything super personal - getting fit, eating well, studying. A great budget is just a really useful tool. It’ll track what you need, how you need it - monitoring your income and expenses, helping you manage your debt repayments, and plan ahead for your financial goals.

The YIGC Budget Template is here.
