I've read a bunch of posts about how to create a portfolio, investments when starting out on your career. I know that a lot (almost everyone) goes through the same kind of things that I'm going through now, but my specific question is:
How can I come up with a good personal (daily) budget that can reduce my anxiety?
Today I woke up late and so had to grab breakfast at Dunkin Donuts and I felt really bad about spending the money there when I can make it at home for cheaper. But then I rationalized it that I can afford to spend $8/day on food. But then another part of me says: True, but I was thinking of joining a gym and that is more costs, so I really should try to make food myself as much as possible.
Ideally I'm looking for a step-by-step guide to creating a personal budget so that I can feel more comfortable making purchases and knowing exactly what I can and cannot do and feel good doing it.
I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide.
