What Is a Budget?
Budgets aren’t just for adults. Kids can make budgets, too. Budgets can help kids figure out how to get the things they want.
You can plan ahead for things you want to buy by saving up for them while also ensuring that you have enough money to pay for any immediate expenses.
Having the skills to budget and manage money successfully helps you spend money responsibly, save for emergencies, secure credit, and achieve financial health in adulthood. Cultivating good habits from a young age makes those habits more likely to stick.
