Hello, friends! Welcome to Shining Mom. You are right here in the most popular segment on the blog, the Happy Freebie Monday, where I get to share planners and organizers on a weekly basis– released on Mondays, of course. For today, let’s talk about budgeting. Let’s admit it, creating one, especially if you’re doing it for the first time, can be pretty overwhelming!
Just the two of us, on our first year of marriage, back when I was still an employee , we had so little that I had to handle our finances wisely and strictly. Yup, we had to be tight when it comes to our spending, otherwise we will not have enough until the next paycheck arrives. Being a regular employee with a very meager earning and with a family to raise is a very challenging thing to do in a third world country. You just have enough for your utilities, food, transportation and child care every day. You can’t afford to overspend on anything, you have to be smart and disciplined with your monthly budget allotment.
Well I guess how we started has taught me a lot in handling our finances these days and how my husband and I decided to both pursue further actions to step up in that situation. In order to live comfortably, we agreed to set a monthly budget and find more ways to earn more. This is probably the reason why you will see tons of printable organizers that tackle budgeting on the blog, like these free monthly budget worksheet printables that I am again releasing today.
As I work on our family budget, I dream to inspire families have a full control of their finances, too. I dream for families to cut off their necessary spending and pay-off their debts. I dream to see every family be financially free! Let’s flex some financial muscles together to be financially fit. Are you ready? Let’s go!
Why You Need a Monthly Budget Worksheet
They say that building a monthly budget is linked to building wealth. I can’t agree more.
For me, going through the month without a budget is like shooting in the dark, not knowing where your darts will go and if you still have anything left in your quiver by the time you need to strike another shot again. Having a budget is like carrying a lighted map that will lead you towards the direction of the financial situation you’d like to be in. It serves as your guide to financial wellness.
This is why, today, I thought of finally sharing a basic monthly budget worksheet templates that you can use outright. I pray that they will bless you immensely! Let’s go see some of the pages I included!
