How to Budget Monthly Finances
One of the most important parts of living on less is thinking like a business person. Come up with a business plan for your business. Your family and your life is YOUR business. Treat it that way. The secret is to Plan, Plan, Plan.
You gave yourself a tight budget, now make it work. Go on a money saving diet, learn how to budget monthly finances wisely. Not one that help you lose weight (unless you count that mountain of debt you are carrying around). Do you or your partner eat fast food for lunch with friends on work breaks? That is at least $10. If you cut out your lunch outings for a month and simply packed a PB&J with carrots, chips, and a drink you could potentially save yourself $200 a month ($10 a day for 4 weeks of Monday through Friday). Your food expenses are a huge part if your budget. Can you imagine the chucks of debt your could eliminate with just that small bit of planning and sacrifice?

I am a stay at home mom and happily married to my husband Tom. I have a five year old daughter and a two and a half year old son. I grew up in Orlando, but went to school in New York City and lived in Los Angeles before moving home to raise a family. I have worked in the film industry since the early nineties, and for over a decade with the Florida Film Festival. I also spent many years working in marketing with Glaceau and Honest Tea. But, I am happiest at home building my family.
