On today’s episode of The Personal Finance Hour, I’ll join Jim from Bargaineering to discuss personal budgets. What works and what doesn’t? And why are so many people scared of them? (Personal finance writers especially seem afraid to talk about budgets.)

This show will air live at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern). It’s much more entertaining for everyone when you call in to participate. If you have some thoughts on budgets — are they good or are they evil? — then join us on the show. (When the show is over, I’ll update this page to give a brief run-down of what we talked about.)
