Makeover Monday: The Budget of A 25-Year-Old

No comments

Several months ago, I read this interesting article about a 25-yr old that was tracking his expenses and how he was choosing to budget his money. The author of the article chose to show the breakdown of the budget as two separate pie charts. This wasn't a surprising choice as it's the first way we learn to show parts to whole in school. The problem of choosing a pie is compounded by including a second pie for the next year, to which you are expected to make comparisons.

So, in this week's Makeover Monday, I walk through a better way to show this data.  Enjoy!
