This is a Beta Test for
Personal Home Budget Calculation

budgeting finances with bills
Home and personal budgeting problems may seem innocent enough, but a poor budget or cash flow allocation can quickly lead to very serious financial collapse. This program works not only to help calculate your home budget but also uses the data you enter to cross check your personal expenses and alert you to inaccuracies in your perceived personal home budget. As a debt attorney, I found one of the most common reasons behind people falling into financial problems stemmed from not accurately knowing where they budget and spent their money. Even for those of you without money problems, understanding the truth about your personal budget finances can help save even more money for college or retirement. For help determining how to deal with your own personal financial or budget problems visit fix-debt.com. For help understanding debt read the materials at debtworkout.com.
