  • You don't need a web site just sit down and figure out how much you make weekly and monthly.
    then figure out what are your concrete bills, the ones that you have to pay each month and what they are $ wise
    Figure out whan they are due. I use a calendar for mine. I write on the calendar what is due and how much. I divide them up for paycheck so I know what had to be paid/mailed/emailed each week for that paycheck.
    Make sure to give yourself time to get the $ there in time
    ANd remember to set aside some $$ in a savings account whenever you can.
    I have it taken right out of my check before I even see it. That way I don't miss it

  • I would also recommend DaveRamsey.com and his book Total Money Makeover. I bet yo can check it out for free from the local library :)

    Here's a direct link to Dave's budgeting forms:
