Budget 101: Introduction

This month we’re going to look at how to set up and stick to a budget. From the mentality you’ll need to develop to actual worksheets to nifty tools to make tracking your budget easier, by the end of the month you should have a clear vision of what your finances look like, how long it will take you to get out of debt and how to start saving for your future.

We’ll revisit net worth statements (although if you’re an eager beaver, you can check out one of my first posts on brokeGIRLrich that covered the topic as well), discuss our financial goals, and develop yearly and monthly budgets.

I’m also doing a new giveaway, so make sure to enter for your chance to win a copy of Judy Lawrence’s The Budget Kit. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance called it “a budgeting workbook that is truly usable.” You’ll get the added bonus of being able to check out Ms. Lawrence’s hair do on the back cover, which appears to be an incredible mullet.

  1. This would be a big help. I’m trying to start to save up money, so I’m needing to start working on a budget. Any help is appreciated. 🙂

    • Cool. Way to go with starting to set up your budget! If you want, you can read through this month of posts for the basics on how to do it. Towards the end of the month, I have a post about different sources to check out and a few of them have free charts you can download. And definitely enter my raffle over at rafflecoptor (there’s a link on the right hand side right above the SITS girls badge) to have a chance to win The Budget Kit – the raffle ends tomorrow.

      Thanks for stopping by!!
