Annie, Fluctuating income does add a “wrinkle” to budgeting. One method, and maybe you tried this, is to “look back” twelve months and average those months income. Use that average as your basis for budgeting. When your income one month exceeds the budgeted amount, make sure to save that excess. When your income one month is less than the budgeted amount, draw from your savings. Hope this helps!
