KUMIKO’S METHOD:
- Kumiko does the budget by paycheck method, and also implements a calendar.
- She doesn’t use a predetermined dollar amount or percentage.
 
JUMP START YOUR BUDGET:
- Learn the emotions and triggers behind your spending.
- When you’re a freelancer, knowing everything about your past spending is important.
- Meal plan! Food is a budget killer.
- Track your spending and figure out where your money is being sucked.
- Call the companies behind your monthly bills and see if you can get your costs down.
- Create an allowance for spontaneous purchases.
- Homeowners should have an emergency fund and a maintenance fund.
- Find a financial adviser you can trust, if you don’t feel comfortable making the decisions on your own.
- Kumiko thinks you’re more motivated to save if you have savings accounts labeled as your specific goal.
- “If I spend the money right now, what am I giving up in the future?”
- For student loans- sit down and figure out exactly what you have.
- There are financial counselors out there for free! Check out non-profit organizations and banks.
 
TOP 5 TIPS:
- Discover your why. Why do you want to start budgeting?
- Track your spending. It’s the number one action step.
- Look at your recurring bills and try to get them down.
- Sit down and look at your debt. Write it all out.
- Figure out what kind of learner you are? That’s how you have to organize your finances to stay motivated.
 
COMMON PITFALLS:
- They can’t change their mindset surrounding what they have/need.
- They feel stuck.
- Food! They need to meal plan.
- Not knowing where to start with debt.
