    work out just about right?

    What do you mean by "work out" and "just about right" in the following?
    Does "work out" mean "total to" or "turn out"? And what is "just about" for right? I guess right means proper. So your budget totals to a proper amount, but I'm not sure.

    ex)...If you are worrying about money when you are away, your enjoyment will suffer. Plan your budget in advance to give yourself time to research the costs fully. If you cannot get confirmed prices, get as many estimates as you can. Note the best price and the worst price and budget in between the two. Ideally, the budgeted figures will work out just about right. If they don't, you will have to use your emergency fund...

    If something works out, it comes to a reasonably satisfactory conclusion.
    Just about right = approximately correct.

    So, if you follow the writer's advice, the figures you have calculated will turn out to be roughly what you will spend.
