My favourite way of creating a project budget is to first ask how much money I’ve got, and then go from there :)

I know it’s not the best way – or even the most ‘project management-y’ way – but sometimes it’s worth cutting to the bottom line and using that as a starting point.

For more background on how to create a project budget, this article will help you get your thoughts together before you dive in.
