Many of us have heard that we should follow a budget but not many of us do. A 2013 Gallup poll found that only 32% of US households put together and follow a written budget each month. Following a budget, which may also be called a spending plan, is the key to success in personal finance, no matter how much money you have or the difficulty of your life’s circumstances.
