You have the best intentions for your budget and you want to take better control of your money and what you spend on, but oftentimes, there are small mistakes that are made during the budgeting process that make our budget fail. 

Here are 7 common mistakes you're making with your budget that's causing you to fail:

  1. You haven’t identified your “why” or purpose
  2. You created a standard “cookie” cutter budget
  3. You only included bills and debt in your budget
  4. You forgot to add savings
  5. You aren’t checking in regularly
  6. You don’t get to zero
  7. You’re not planning for upcoming events or life in your budget
