Free Cell Phones and Monthly Budgets Help Save Money


If you're looking at your paycheck and wondering how you're going to cover all your expenses, setting up a monthly budget is a great way to make sure you're living within your means.  The first step to setting up a budget is to look at what you need to have to get by each month and what the associated cost are.  This does not include extra's such as going to the movies or going out to a restaurant once or twice a month.  Below is a partial list of basic necessities that most people need each month.  For a complete list of items you should consider budgeting for,  click here
  • Rent/Mortgage
  • Renters or Home Insurance
  • Utilities - gas/electric
  • Water/Sewage/Trash
  • Phone (Free phone plans are available through Budget Mobile to those who qualify)
  • Internet
  • Food
  • Daily toiletries - shampoo, soap, etc.
  • Gas or transportation cost
  • Auto Insurance 
  • Health Insurance
  • Healthcare Cost
  • Clothing
After reviewing all of your monthly expenses, review what income you have coming in on a monthly basis to see if you're able to cover your monthly expenses.  If you have any extra money left over from your paycheck when you compare it to your expenses, you can leave a little extra money for unexpected events and the rest should go into a savings account.
