Creating your Monthly Household Budget | 5 Steps to Getting Started


It’s that time of the month — again!    Tonight (yes, on a Friday!) I will be sitting down to do my personal budget…. you should probably be doing the same sometime over the next few days.

Do you have a monthly budget?    Every month at month end, I take an hour (usually two) to do mine. If I don’t .. I have this strong feeling of anxiety when we start a new month. I don’t know what I’m spending, and I feel like I’m going into the month blind without a written plan.

Over the last few years, we have worked hard to keep our family on a written game plan and as a result, been able to pay over $60,000 in consumer debt. Having this written plan was incredibly necessary for us to see where our money was going – hold us accountable for our spending, and cut spending on areas we were wasting money in to make room for paying down OTHER areas. It was hard…… we sacrificed quite a bit (and we still do!) – but we’re still on track. We’re debt free with the exception of our home and working on paying that off within the next 5 years.

Creating your monthly budget is something that you need to do before the month begins …. it’s extremely crucial that you give every dollar you bring home an assignment – having a written plan to help you take control of your paycheck will give you more security each month.

You may discover that you are spending much more than you realized; or you may be saving more than you knew.

Once you fine tune your budget, you will need to re-crate it each month – sit down sometime during the last week of the month and spend an hour our two preparing for the next. Make sure you involve your spouse - it makes better sense for both of you to be on the same sheet of music when it comes to handling your money.

Here are my steps for creating that monthly budget:

Start the Last Week of the Month for the Month Upcoming.  You can’t start the month without having your written budget done (at least I can’t!) I feel like I’m spending blind.

Calculate & note your monthly income.  Pull out your last paycheck and write down your earnings. If you are self employed, add your earnings for the last year & divide by 12. Make sure you include all forms of income (Child Support, money-earning hobbies, etc.)

Note all your Expenses.  Write down everything that you pay for – Rent, Mortgage, Food, Cable, Phone, Cell Phone, Pest Control, Home Alarm, Car Insurance, Investments (IRA), College Fund, and more. You might have to pull out your bank statements to remember everything you pay for – especially since many of us have our expenses drafted automatically.

Balance the Income & Outgoing.  Add up each and make sure you fill in anything you may have missed.  Then balance what you have – if you are spending more than what you are bringing in, you’ll need to determine how to cut what you are spending, OR find a way to bring in more income.  Usually it’s a little easier to cut from what you’er currently spending.   Once you set aside your required monthly outgoing (Electricity, Water, Cable – the recurring items), determine what is left – and assign every remaining dollar to a category.  

Determine Where you Can Cut Expenses.  If you opt to cut expenses over trying to earn additional income, you will want to take every area of your budget into consideration:

  • Do you eat out at work? Try to stop doing that and bring your own lunch to save upwards of $10 per day.
  • Bundle your cable with your internet – sometimes you can save when you bundle. OR, think of alternative ways to save (ie. Netflix, Hulu, and more).  
  • Clip more coupons – set a cash grocery budget; envelope that cash per week and use that envelope to shop – ONLY use cash. You tend to spend less when you use cash versus plastic because you can actually see and feel the money as you spend it.
  • Review your investments & insurance monthly to ensure you’re not being overcharged.  
  • Try to plan your meals around items that are on sale – make 1-2 additional servings to allow yourself meals for work.
By using a cash based budget (using your own cash envelopes), you can set up categories for those areas that aren’t included in your automatic withdrawals (gas, entertainment and food are our 3 top categories).    
Each month, you’ll need to adjust your budget accordingly for changes in bills and pay periods – you may need to pay vehicle registration… or, extracurricular for your children once they start school. You might want to start a Christmas fund mid-year so you can start putting money away for Christmas gifts – each month you will need to adjust your budget to reflect those changes.
Once you start getting the hang of knowing exactly where your money goes, and what you (may) have remaining, you’ll hopefully be able to free up some money to pay down some of your other expenses (Loans, Credit Cards & more).

Essential Oils for the Classroom | Reduce the Spread of Germs, Enhance Memory & More


TEACHER 10105126352415544 3466758219764426463 n

If you’re a teacher headed back to start the 2014 – 2015 school year, you can incorporate Essential Oils into your classroom – the oils listed in the graphic above are all part of the Young Living Starter Collection.

I picked up the collection a few months ago (and have expanded quite a bit since then). 

Anyone who is familiar with Essential Oils knows that there are differences in quality – you can pick up lesser priced oils at the grocery store, and in some cases online stores – but most are non-therapeutic trade – which are not recommended for topical or internal use.

You can read more about Young Living Oils and how to capture them at Wholesale Prices.

Incorporating a diffuser into the classroom is a great way to use the oils.

You can find inexpensive diffusers on Amazon – they do vary in price quite largely – I have one similar to this one HERE that sits in my bedroom. They do have some with a nightlight as well.

To read more about how to get started on Essential Oils read my last post.
