When was the last time you looked at your budget? Even the best-laid plans change occasionally — especially during times of inflation (cough, cough, like right now).

If your current budget isn’t working, it’s time for a refresh.

Cash flow budgeting can help guide you in the right direction, whether you’re looking to pay off debt, save for a large purchase, or bolster your emergency fund.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Automate your savings: Remember to “pay” yourself with each automatic deposit to a savings account.
  2. Prioritize and pay for monthly essentials.
  3. Spend the leftovers: Here’s your opportunity to use your extra cash to indulge in an extra iced latte, plan a weekend getaway, or add it to your savings.
  4. Roll over what’s left: This type of budgeting allows flexibility so you can support your finances where you see fit.
