Why Budgeting as a Student is important

Budgeting is the process of creating a plan to spend your money. It is one of the most important financial habits that help develop a healthy routine but most people especially students find it hard to cultivate.

Budgeting helps you to clearly define and prioritize your needs over your wants. Being a student introduces you to the adult life of managing expenses, this healthy routine of budgeting helps you channel your expenses to the right things.

Monitoring and record-keeping is one other important reason to budget. You can begin to monitor your spending habits and find a way to manage expenses that can be classified as wants like eating out with friends, subscription services like Netflix, etc.

Finally, it is also a great way to reach your financial goals, and even exceed them. If all the expenses you make are duly budgeted, you can even save and have money to handle emergencies.
