  1. Awesome! I have THE spreadsheet too, or one like it, anyway. The tricky part for me is usually the tracking of expenses. Sometimes I get busy, or just don’t feel like doing it… then it piles up and gets overwhelming.

    Gotta get better about slow and steady progress.

    Thanks!!

  2. Great advice! Flexibility and being on the same page as your spouse are both very important. Both partners must be fully engaged in the budgeting process for it to work. A rigid budget will die a quick death!

    There are several options beyond just using a spreadsheet to track one’s budget. I use YNAB Pro to plan and track my monthly budget. It works great for me.

  4. @ Lisis – At least you have a budget, that’s a huge first step. Tying the tracking with payday helps to keep us on track at most we are only ever 2 weeks behind.

    @ Jeff – That’s awesome I’m glad you’ve found a system that works. I’m not familiar with YNAB but having had a quick look at it it looks fairly straight forward. Thanks for the tip!

    @ PP – That’s great! I hope it works out for you it’s amazing how quickly you can get further ahead financially when you have a budget that works.
