My family budget notebook is one of the best “tools” we use in our house. It’s what helps us stay on track, make a plan if we go “off-track”, and it also makes tax-time a breeze!
I go in to more detail in the video below, but basically my family budget notebook is separated in different sections to keep everything where they should be.
- Pouch for pen, stamps, checks, address labels
- Monthly Calendar to write bill due dates on, followed by a budget breakdown sheet for each month
- Checkbook register I made using an Excel spreadsheet
- Mortgage Statements
- Vehicle Loan Statements
- Business Income/Expenses (will go in to more detail in a later post)
Check out the video below to see exactly how this notebook is used and why I love it!
How I organize my family budget notebook
I’d love to hear how you organize your family’s finances! Do you use a similar method? Share below what works best for you! Or send you photos and info to firstname.lastname@example.org and I may just feature it in a post!
You can find the ARC Notebook System at Staples!
