Confession: I live paycheck to paycheck

Thankfully I now have You Need A Budget, an award-winning budgeting tool for Mac and PC

It's uncomfortable for me to say this but ... I live paycheck to paycheck.

Yet I have a full-time job with a high salary.

You may be wondering how that's possible.

Well, let's face it ... life is expensive as hell.

I never really realized it until I listed it all out. Every month I have to:

  • Pay rent ($1,550)
  • Pay cable and electric bills ($150)
  • Pay for car insurance ($100)
  • Pay for health insurance ($200)
  • Pay off my college debts ($500)
  • Pay for tacos/eating out ($500)
  • Pay for random crap here and there ($300)

So when I get my paycheck for the month ... all my money disappears :-(

Yet I KNOW I should be saving.

Why? Because I want to buy a house one day. I want to get a new car. I want to retire at some point.

I want to live without worrying about money.

Don't you?

The solution: a budget.

But frankly ... that just sounds complicated and boring.

Thankfully, I recently found something that makes it dead easy ...

You Need A Budget (YNAB for short) is an AMAZING tool that helps you take full control of your money.

It's based on a proven method with just four basic rules:

  1. Give every dollar a job: Assign your dollars to different categories like rent, groceries, spending money, etc.
  2. Save for a rainy day: Make sure to account for larger, less-frequent expenses (Medical bills, vacation, Christmas).
  3. Roll with the punches: Be flexible and address overspending before moving on to the next month.
  4. Live on last month’s income: Now it’s time to save. Spend this month, what you earned last month.

YNAB makes it super easy to follow this framework with their beautiful software:
