How to Form a Budget (+ free printable!)

Hello girls! Today, I am going to be sharing with you all some of my favorite budgeting tips! Please, make sure you read until the end, because there is a FREE printable! 

Even when you are still living at home, there is no time too early to start keeping track of your expenses and putting yourself on a budget. When you are on a budget, you will find that you have more money for the things you want and need, instead of constantly having to borrow money from older family members. Keeping track of how much you spend and how you spend it can also make you a smarter shopper. Your money has more value when you are aware of how much you have been blessed monetarily. 

When you first start out, start simply. Even just keeping track of your allowance or other small income will help you greatly! As you grow more comfortable with writing down your cash flow, you will find yourself saving more and spending less.

So, let me know how budgeting works for you! Do you keep track of your money? If so, how?
P.S. Make sure you download your FREE spending log!

  1. How wonderful you are learning to budget, dear Claire! It truly makes me smile to see other young ladies striving to attain this valuable skill which will benefit them so much in their future life, especially if God desires for them to marry and raise a family!
    I feel so sad when I look around me and see so many young people spending without thinking of the value and blessing each cent is worth. Having money is a gift from God which we should use wisely...
    And if you are privileged to have a way to earn a little income of your own, then budgeting and keeping track is very important!
    Thank you so much for sharing this printable...I think I will print it out as I feel it will encourage me to keep going and keep track of everything!
    May you be richly blessed - I am really so glad to have met you!
    Much love and hugs to you!
