How do you budget money?

Make a list of all your expenses and prioritize by how important they are---like food, water, electric etc... then make a list of all your income/any money that you receive every month. Add up your expenses and see if you have enough money every month, if you have money left over after paying all your necessities then allow some money for non-necessities, like eating out, movies ect...Also include an amount, if able, that you can put towards savings every month, even if its a small amount.
