Sometimes budgets are treated much like diets, which could be why it's tough for a lot of people to stick to them. Diets are harder to implement over the weekend because of eating out and drinking more and budgets follow a similar cycle. It's easier to follow a budget during the week because there's less free time to spend money. What's an easy fix? Just factor your extra weekend spending into your overall budget so that you don't end up dry before your next paycheck.
