Even for financial professionals, making and sticking to a personal budget can be one of the hardest things to do. Many times, this activity includes the painstaking exercise of confronting exactly what you spend, and what you spend it on, each month of the year. To make the best and most accurate budget, it must include ALL expenses. This includes those that are fixed and those that may vary monthly, weekly, or even daily.
