  • Give Every Dollar a Job
  • Embrace Your True Expenses
  • Roll With the Punches
  • Age Your Money

=### Rule 1 = Try and decide a purpose for all the money you make. Generally, this looks like taking your income, and assigning it a category (like fun, food, savings, etc)

=### Rule 2 = Remember to account for reality! The only way a budget matters is if it reflects reality! Take account of all those infrequent purchases, track those too!

=### Rule 3 = Rule 3 is kinda self explanatory. If you fuck up, and it's going to happen, just like spend a little less elsewhere, it's not the end of the world.

=### Rule 4 = Try to use "old" money that you received a while ago, which naturally leads to a buffer, which means you're not fretting about everything
