Budgeting, its a topic that has not changed much from the time some dude had two cows to spend. “Where did that other cow go?”
Today we have all sorts of fancy products and systems to help us budget our money, but does budgeting have to be so hard?
For the record, I hate to budget. I hate to track my spending and I hate to use any of those fancy systems. I don’t even despise it, I literally hate it.
But when needed, budgeting or tracking where you spend your money is a critical tool to use to figure out where your money goes and what you can really afford.
Below is a movie from 1948 that shows two ladies men planning how they are going to gather together enough coin to eat ice cream and buy a camera. Boy, these instructional films don’t age well.
I hope you enjoy “Your Thrift Habits” and you don’t start uncontrollably salivating over a peach super-delite, you’ll see.
The lessons taught are basic, but then again, budgeting is pretty basic in its simplest form.
