It says while many do have a budget 76% of those surveyed still run out of money before the end of the month.
According to the study, women are the hardest hit and this is because they take care of their children and families.
“Expected to take care of their children as well as other family members, the survey reveals that 59% of women run out of money before the end of the month, compared to 56% of men. Black women are the most likely to do so (64%),” said the report.
