Budgeting benefits include: reduces time and energy worrying about how the bills will be paid; provides information for a well-thought out plan for your income and expenses; lets you know if you need to consider additional income from a job; and, eliminates one more distraction from the focus needed to succeed in your college program!
If you would like to talk over strategies to create a plan, options for dealing with problems you anticipate, or would just like to have someone work through the process with you, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with a peer tutor. (They have had first-hand experience!)
