You Need A Budget (YNAB)

A weekly dose of just the right medicine to help you get out of debt, save more money, and beat the paycheck to paycheck cycle.


episode 431: Daily Reconciliation and Gardening

The attentive gardener notices the small things. The way plants grow, flourish, and wither on a daily basis. He knows that weeds are easily dispatched when pulled daily. The gardener plays a long game, but sees each move in detail. 


Budgeting is no different. The attentive budgeter notices small things, finds small efficiencies there, because she checks in often. She knows that it's easier to correct course when her budget is moving in the wrong direction, because she watches carefully and often. The daily reconciliation becomes a joy, not a chore.
