Precautions need to be taken for budgeting on an irregular income. Budgets with irregular income should keep two things in mind: spending more than your average income, and running out of money even when your income is on average.
The question now is how could families manage the family financial in a time like this and avoid falling into future quagmire because of squandering future family money. Families were lured into spending frenzies by Shylock soft loan lenders that hid under ostentatious good dealers to dish out the loan with well hidden fine prints that tend to hang the unsuspecting families who as a result spend beyond their family budgets and or even personal budgets. In the process many families with children have lost their family home. Though, spendthrift families are also not innocent as quite a few of them never built nor used family plans and family budgets. Some never even sought family help when they became aware of their circumstance in their family financial.
When the world economy was booming, business and families where in a spend spree and there was laxity in spending, corporate governance, regulatory surveillance and controls. This has resulted in a mountain of debts in both family, corporate and government circles. Consequently, people are losing jobs in millions all over the world as businesses are folding.
The budgeting process is designed to be flexible; and you should have an expectation that a budget will change from month to month, and will require ongoing monthly review. Expense overruns in one category of a budget should in the next month be accounted for or prevented. For example, if you or your family spends $50 more than planned on groceries, next month`s budget should reflect a$50 increase and decreases of $50 in other parts of their budget.
