Loud Budgeting: The ‘Gen Z’ Approach Towards Financial Management

Currently, a new trend is igniting conversations among youngsters. A money trend, overflowing social media platforms, like TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter --  Loud Budgeting.

Introduced by a Tiktok creator, Lukas Battle, the concept fundamentally revolves around being vocal about one’s financial situation.

What Exactly Is It ?

In simple terms, Battle asks common people to be transparent about their financial limitations. They must be confident and honest enough to say ‘NO’ to unnecessary spending. Say ‘YES’ to needs and ‘NO’ to wants.

At first, the concept seemed to be a jest for some, but quickly, it turned out to be an efficient approach to money management. Individuals following the trend opened up about how they are on a budget and own strategies towards money handling.

In his one-minute video, Lukas stated an instance, which says, if someone who is on loud budgeting would not just simply say no to a dinner invitation but say, “Sorry, can’t go out to dinner, I’ve got $7 a day to live on.”
