How to Use A Budget Binder
Monthly and Yearly Financial Goals
The Monthly Financial Goals sheet will allow you to reflect back and figure out what you can do differently each month. It also has an area for you to write down what you need to do to reach those goals.
Your goal can be to pay off your student loans, decrease your groceries budget, easily pay your monthly rent or just get a handle on your purchases.
The Yearly Financial Goals sheet offers you a place to write out your major goals for the year and then track your progress as you move closer to hitting the goal.
For example, one of your yearly goals may be to save up enough money to replace your driveaway at your home. You could then write that in for Goal #1 along with the estimated cost and a date for when you would like to have it completed by.
This will help you to see why you are saving money or cutting back on other expenses throughout the year.
This can also be a place where you write a vacation goal. It will give you a deadline to have enough money saved up for your vacation.
Planning ahead and getting in the habit of goal setting will help to keep more money in your pockets.
Monthly Bills Passwords
This sheet is here to help you keep track of all your login credentials for your monthly bills. You can mark off if you have it set to autopay and then put in the account, your username and your password.
This will help you to stay organized so you know what is set up to get automatically withdrawn and what isn’t.
Monthly Bill Tracker
Use this sheet to pay your bills on time. One of the top financial struggles people have are paying their bills on time. You can also mark off if you have it set for auto-pay on this sheet as well.
Either you forget, or you haven’t budgeted enough money and have to wait until your next paycheck.
Don’t you just hate having to pay a late payment fee? Those costs can really start to add up.
These are great for all of your recurring monthly expenses such as personal loans, car payments, kids tuition, mortgage payments, utility bills, gym memberships, insurance payments and whatever else you have come out every single month.
This is essentially an expense tracker to make sure your monthly income will cover all of your expenses.
This tracking sheet will help you to stay organized and see when a bill is due each month.
You can use this template to easily track your income and expenses each month. It comes blank so you can customize each category with your own income, expenses and savings information.
I have a column for estimated so that you can budget your money and then a column for the actual amount of the expense each month.
These monthly budget worksheets help you to plan ahead to make sure you have enough money to cover your bills.
Emergency Fund Tracker
This is another worksheet in the budget binder that is pretty self-explanatory. It is a fun way to visually see your savings amount increase.
You can fill in your goal and then add a deadline date to hit it by.
For example, your goal might be $1,000 in the next 3 months. So you can fill in $1,000 for the goal and then add in a specific date of 3 months from now for the deadline.
Then, color in the thermometer image as you add money to this emergency fund.
Bank Account & Credit Card Information
This sheet is pretty much self-explanatory, but it is nice to have all of this information together in one place. I have a separate bank account for my blog and separate bank accounts for our four boys.
It is nice to have the account numbers and routing information handy when I need to make any kind of transaction. This is a great place to keep information for a savings account that you can directly deposit money into from each paycheck.
The same goes for your credit card information. You will see you can add in all the important details including your login credentials so you can reference them when needed.
Debt Paydown Worksheet
Finding extra money to put towards your debt each month is hard. You can use this printable to keep track of each creditor you have.
This debt tracker will help you to stay on track and make sure you are paying off your debt.
You can print a separate sheet for each creditor. For example, you can print a copy of this debt payoff planner for your car loan and then another copy for a credit card that you have.
This sheet can help you to decide which debt you are going to try to tackle first.
Blank Monthly Calendars
I like to include 12 monthly calendars with the budget binder so that you can write down important dates and even keep track of when we will be receiving paychecks or other income.
This will help you to figure out how much money you can budget each month. This is also good to use if you have a special event or party coming up so that you can plan ahead for it.
There is a total of 57 pages in the 2023 Budget Binder set.
