Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Group Home

If you are a multi-income (double or more) household...



Question: ...how do you have your budget accounts set up?


It all goes into a joint account and we pay bills from that

we each contribute to a joint account for household bills, the rest is ours to spend as we want

we divided the bills between us so that each person is responsible for a different bill(s)

it's a free for all when it comes to paying bills/we don't have a budget plan in place

I pay the mortgage, and my Menards card plus I usually am in charge of getting all the presents bought or made for everyone. If we are struggling and I have the money I will pay for my own gas or groceries.

My dh pays the rest.

 We have the one account for personal but we have a business account and I pay for business supplies and business bills from that but the profit goes for bills/needs/vacation whatever.

When we had to incomes we paid bills out of what ever check we had that week, or if we got paid on the same week, we would set aside the amount we need for the next week. I would put part of my check in the joint account, my husband would part of his check in his account
