Ask the Readers: Where Did You Learn to Budget?

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Lorri, Karen, and Chrissy for winning this week's contest!

It used to be that you learned about money management in school, but that hasn't been the case for a long while. The lucky ones had financially literate parents who taught them the basics from a young age, but many of us had to learn budgeting skills on our own, either from books, websites, or just plain experience.

Where did you learn to budget? What was the greatest challenge when you first learned to maintain budget? What advice would you give someone who is new to budgeting?

Tell us where you learned to budget and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!
