Everyone responds to their personal debt differently. Some of us are not concerned and have enough monthly income or savings to cover the debt. Others avoid it at all costs – knowing it could cause a multitude of cascading financial issues in a fragile balance of income and expenses. But, either way, personal financial experts seem to agree on the importance of budgeting – developing a plan that balances your daily expense sheet. In fact, Financial guru Dave Ramsey states that “budgeting is essential to your financial success.” He uses the term zero-based budgeting to explain “a way of budgeting where your income minus your expenses equals zero.”
