Big and fixed expenses can have a great impact on my budget, like a payment I make on a car I bought, or a zero interest credit card balance transfer payment I am committed to do every month. So I guess you’re wondering why I’m bringing this up.

The thing is, if I DON’T consider these large expenses in my budget, I could get into real trouble. And I mean TROUBLE!

This week’s video covers what fixed expenses are and why its important to factor these in to your budget.
