1.4.5 Keep your budgeting system alive

Whether you use a budget or envelopes, your budgeting system isn't a one-time thing. To make it work, you need to review it regularly. At first, do this weekly. Once you are certain that it is accurate, review it monthly.

Try both a paper budget and an envelope system, to see which works better for you. You may find that both are useful: a budget to plan your future spending and an envelope system to manage your current spending.
