Setting Up a Budget

I am a recent college grad and looking for tips on how to set up a budget. I work as a waitress, so my imcome varies, and a large portion of it is cash. I am a responsible person and haven't had many money problems, but feel like I need to get better control over my finances. Any advice on bill paying, budgeting, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Setting Up a Budget

You need to have 3 accounts:

  • immediate expenses
  • saving up for large purchases (car, TV, etc.)
  • a regular savings account
