Dec. 29, 2010 - PRLog -- The cost of college rises every year, and managing student finances has become more complicated. In fact, college has become a financial juggling act that takes many students by surprise. Filling out FAFSA applications, figuring out student loans, purchasing books, paying rent, and managing part-time jobs have all become part of the typical college experience. This is where financialfootprint comes in. Beyond their one-on-one financial guidance service, financialfootprint offers online tools, like their budgeting worksheets, to help you manage your student finances.

When people hear the words “budgeting worksheets,” their brains sometimes tune out. “Budgeting worksheets” sounds like organizing the basement or vacuuming the car—something to keep putting off. But financialfootprint has changed all that. Now you can take control of your money and your life with the help of one simple (and dare we say, fun?) application. Using a nifty tool called “The bÜdg,” you can easily manage your student finances, paychecks, scholarships, rent, and even your gas money.

The bÜdg is organized around a simple concept: keeping track of money coming in and money going out.

The budgeting worksheets help you organize your student finances into 3 primary buckets:

1.   Income and savings (like paychecks and scholarships)
2.   Essential expenses (like tuition, rent, and food)
3.   Optional expenses (like movies, restaurants, and new clothes)

The beauty of the bÜdg is that it is one-size-fits-all. Since you are in control of inputting income and expenses into the budgeting worksheet, you can make it as basic or as comprehensive as you need it to be. You can start off very simply, easily adding more categories as you need to. It’s up to you to organize categories into buckets that make sense for your life.

Then, with a click of the mouse, the computer does all the hard work for you. The bÜdg helps you maximize your budget by breaking it down into a series of easy-to-follow graphs. It also allows you to look at things from both a monthly and year-long standpoint. With the bÜdg, you will be able to interpret your income and expenditures, control your student finances, and understand where your money is going and—most importantly—how you can save more of it.                  

financialfootprint offers personal financial solutions and education tailored for young adults via a one-on-one guidance service and an array of online tools like the bÜdg.
