Your budget won't reflect on your credit score but your payment history will.  For a budget suggestion, prioritize your living expenses placing housing and utilities first, food next and transportation (gas, insurance, maintanence).  Once all basic expenses of living are covered (and do include a modest amount for entertainment) then anything left over from your paycheck can go to paying debts such as student loans, car payments, and credit accounts and those you want to pay off as quickly as possible.  Getting credit accounts paid in full as fast as possible reflects very well on your credit report.
