I will be officially divorced this February and am embarrassed to admit that I really never had a budget. Actually I really don't know how to begin to start one either. If there is a group or website that you know of that could give me some tips "Budgeting for Dummies" (lol). Thank you.

Get a calender and make a list of your bills in a notebook,on the calender mark your paydates, then on the calender put your bills to be paid that week. Look on your bills and find out the grace period "Know your grace times" Do this for 2 mo. ahead in notebook. add up the bills and if your not going to have enough to pay "ele. bill" for that week pay another smaller bill and save half of the Ele. bill for the next week and so on. Try to arrange all your payments 2 weeks before they are due in the notebook and rearrange when needed cause some bills are due before payday that way you are prepared. Always be prepared for something to come up. Google How to live frugal" on the computor or "How to live homeless" everyone should know this just in case.
