Obviously, you will want to choose something conservative and with the least amount of risk. If you would rather not choose to invest the excess budget allotment, I would recommend placing these funds back into the company’s books, along with an explanation for the reason of the excess. It would also be a good idea to write a letter delineating what your budget needs will be for the following year, being mindful to make a notation to the effect of whether or not you anticipate needing all of the funds next year. This second solution would be the better idea, in my opinion, because in this economy, being frugal without negatively affecting the company’s profit or good service is a very difficult thing to accomplish. It should be something to be proud of, not the opportunity to be wasteful. Proverbs 28:19 tells us: “Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty” (Holy Bible, NIV). We should do well to be mindful of working hard, even when it is not our money that we are dealing with. Sincerely,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
