How can I create a realistic budget? Part One – Unrealistic Budgets

Resistance to creating a budget and then following that budget is one of the biggest money blocks people experience, bringing up comments like:

  • If I follow a budget there is no way I can have any fun
  • Life changes too much, there is no point in creating a budget, it will just change
  • Budgets never work, I always end up going over
  • Budgets do nothing but cause my family to fight over money
  • Following a budget makes me feel like I can’t live the life I want
  • Making a budget brings up all of the money issues I have in my life and makes me panic

These sorts of comments usually mean that budgeting is not the problem, creating an unrealistic budget is the problem.
