Budgeting – balancing expenses with income – is simple in theory, but can prove challenging in practice. However, following a budget and understanding where your money goes – down to even the smallest expenditures – can help anyone avoid short term financial stresses and long term debt. Developing a spending plan and tracking daily expenses are two of the most important components to the budgeting process.
Air Force Aid Society has developed a new Expense Tracker booklet to help Airmen get a better handle on their own personal budgeting process. Visit a local Airman & Family Readiness Center to get your copy today. Or, download a PDF version here.
And remember – Air Force Aid Society and the AFAS representatives at bases worldwide are here to help Airmen on the path to long term financial stability.
Air Force Aid Society is the official charity of the U.S. Air Force and has been meeting the unique needs of Airmen and their families since 1942. AFAS works to support and enhance the USAF mission by providing emergency financial assistance, educational support and community programs. Over the last decade, AFAS has provided nearly $165 million in direct support via more than 450,000 assists.
