ACCC’s September poll focused on a crucial financial topic: budgets. Your budget is the primary financial tool when you are working towards debt relief. We wanted to understand what’s in your budget and how in-line you are with the recommended spending guidelines. The survey found that 57% of respondents have a working budget. However, 37% are still not aware of the recommended spending guidelines in a household budget. According to Gallup, nearly one in three Americans prepare a detailed written or computerized household budget each month that tracks their income and expenses. See these and other interesting findings with this month’s poll results infographic.
