  • Dh and I start with our pay dates...then we write down the dates all of our bills are due and put them under the appropriate paycheck. Sometimes we have to juggle a little bit to make sure we leave ourselves enough money for gas and meals. For us that's a minimum of $150/wk. Once you do it a month or two you'll get a pretty good idea of what time of the month all your bills are due and if you have a time of the month where you don't have many bills due (midmonth for us) you learn to budget more of that money for the next payperiod when a lot of bills are due.

  • Brandi, if you want to PM me your email address, I can send you the Excel spreadsheet that we use for our budget along with an explanation of how we set up each budget.

    Good for you for wanting to get on a plan--you're on the right track!!
