Budgeting 101

Redditors near and far have plenty of similar financial goals: to pay off debt, save for a big purchase, and just be more in control of their financial situation. The most import step is to know where your money goes, and to make it work for you. Without a budget, your money management is muddy, at best. At worst, you may find yourself digging out of the credit card hole. I want to empower Redditors to reach their financial goals by teaching them Step 1: The Budget.

What I aim to accomplish with my students: * Give you a clear picture of where your money is going. * Every dollar has a job: show you how much you can afford to spend on essentials, and fun money too! * Keep you motivated and confident about where your financial life is headed after this course.

I hope to get people a little bit more financially literate about spending/saving, for reasons tangible (higher credit score) and intangible (confidence in being in control of your money!)

Prerequisites

A desire for a money makeover!

Syllabus

I think I will create a subreddit for the class, and post lessons chronologically. I think this will make for good feedback from teacher to student, and give the ability for students to interact with other students... asking questions, and keeping each other accountable as the weeks go on. Plus, we can all reap karma off each other.... how cool is that?

Topics to be covered:

  1. What is a budget, why it's important, and why you need to do it.
  2. Step by step, how to build a budget for you.
  3. Assess your current financial situation, and take control!
