    A written budget should be done every month to ensure that expenses and income are properly tracked and managed. Monthly budgeting allows individuals or households to have a clear understanding of their financial situation on a regular basis. It helps in setting financial goals, identifying areas of overspending or savings, and making necessary adjustments to stay on track. By reviewing and updating the budget monthly, individuals can make informed decisions about their spending and saving habits, ultimately leading to better financial stability and control.

    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of the above". When creating a monthly budget, it is important to consider fixed expenses, which are recurring costs that do not change, such as rent or mortgage payments. Variable expenses, on the other hand, are costs that fluctuate from month to month, such as groceries or utility bills. Lastly, it is also important to allocate some money for discretionary spending or "money to blow", which can be used for entertainment or personal indulgences. Including all of these categories in the budget ensures that all necessary expenses are covered while leaving room for flexibility and enjoyment.
