Money Mapping (Budgeting)

My Monthly Income and Spending

Three things happen when you use a money map:

  1. You understand how and where you spend your money.
  2. You become more aware of your cash flow.
  3. You control your finances and your future.

Speaking of Income

There are basically two types of income: earned income and unearned income.

You might even have a source of unearned income that’s not on this list.

If you have earned income, you already know that you don’t get to keep all that you make because you have to pay taxes!
