Balance Your Budget

Contestants had to describe what happened at home to keep their budgets going into the red. Host Bert Parks, the keeper of the "Horn of Plenty," asked the questions and could solve their money problems for them. Winners went to the bonus round, where they chose a key that might open a "Treasure Chest;" the chest started at $1,500 and went up $500 each time an incorrect key was picked.

Balance Your Budget Premiered:

October, 1952
