Do you stick to a budget every month? Or just pay the bills that need paid and go from there?

 I always make one out and follow it partly but it usually gets changed atleast alittle! Wish I could get us to follow it completely!

I've never been good at budgets. I am pretty sure I need one though!

I pay bills and then decide
what to do with the money that's left over. I buy gifts, stuff for the house, stuff for myself and Jaxson, put money in savings etc.

 I have a budget, but sometimes we spend a little more than necessary. We pay all the necessary bills, which also include some savings and spending. But if we have some extra, we use it to get things for our house like paint or things for our daughter.

I notice you are wearing a sling in your pic. I just posted a question about slings. I am in the market and need some opinions....
