Operating your finances without a budget or a plan is a recipe for disaster. Budgeting allows you to "see" your specific financial picture at a daily, weekly, monthly or even yearly glance which is a proven far better way to budget your money than trying to manage your finances in your head. Once you are able to get a clear view of your financial picture, it is only then that you are able to make plans for the use of the available funds, know exactly when those funds will or will not be available, or even know what items or monthly expenses you can cut back on in order to find or create the available money to save, invest, or increase.
It is much easier to identify problem areas in your finances with a budgeting tool which allows you to make better overall financial decisions and avoid future pitfalls that you may not have otherwise seen. For those looking to become masters of managing their money it is vitally imperative to create healthy financial habits like the continuous use of a budget sheet and taking the time to actually plan the use of your money, rather than just spending it in order to maximize its growth and help eliminate waste or unnecessary spending of your finances that can be put to better use.
