There once was a housewife named Jane
Who tried to stick to her budget in vain
There would come a surprise
to her budget's demise

Jane probably just has a missing ingredient in her personal budget; An essential budgeting ingredient that could prevent such a surprise from sabataging her budget. A budget plan must consist of some basic ingredients.

Expenses like clothing, household maintenance, and auto mainenance require planning. Jane failed to account for these periodic, yet essential, expenses in her budget. If you need budget guidance, like Jane and many others, this new online budgeting system could be the budget help you need.
