If you have had the same experience, you can understand the struggles that you have to endure during this time. If you don’t have someone to support you financially or you have the extra burden of supporting your family during this time, you will have to tap into your reserves and deplete your financial resources quickly.

This is why it is important to establish a budget constraint when you are not working. Budgeting can be very tough if you have never had to deal with personal finances before. Typically, budgeting consists of managing your outflows or expenses and your inflows or incomes. Ideally, you would want to have inflows that exceed your outflows.
