Balance Your Budget was a quiz show where people discussed their "money problems" to host Bert Parks (who was the keeper of the "horn of plenty"), and then tried to solve them by answering questions for cash and later, choosing a key that could unlock a treasure chest.

GameplayEdit

Contestants described what caused their household budgets to slip into the red and then were given the opportunity to win what they need to solve their problems by answering questions. Winners were also given the chance to choose a key, one of which would open the treasure chest, containing an additional jackpot that started at $1,500, and grew by $500 until the correct key was discovered.
