Over the past few months, my husband and I have really started being more intentional with our household budget so that we know where every single dollar goes each month.
We’ve tried budgeting before and have always failed. What I think has made us successful this time is the fact that we are writing down our budget on paper each month. Having a plan made sticking to it SO much easier.
If you are also struggling with getting your budget under control, then you’ll want to download this free household budget form today!
There are spaces to add your household income and expenses, a place to record your savings goals (for example, if you were saving up for a new car, you can write down your progress each month), and a place to jot down any notes that will help you with your spending.
Having everything on one piece of paper to be able to see it all at a glance is especially helpful for us. Flipping through 2 or 3 pages is a little bit of a hassle…making budgeting as easy as possible is the key to sticking with it.
I’ll be writing more about budgeting in the next few months, including tips on creating a household budget, tips on keeping your grocery budget low, and prioritizing items in your budget. In the meantime, you can check out a few of the posts I’ve written about budgeting.
