What is a Consumer Budget?
A consumer budget is the actual purchasing potential with which a consumer can purchase a set of two goods, provided their prices.
Now, let us contemplate that a customer has only a fixed amount of income to spend on two commodities. The marketplace furnishes the prices of goods. The customer cannot buy any or every combination of the two commodities.
