Household Budget

A budget is the description of a spending and savings financial plan that estimates income and expenditures over a specific period of time. Using a budget will help you to live within your means by planning your spending and savings. As you track your expenses and create a household budget, you are taking an important first step towards organizing your finances.

To begin this process, you should pre-read our Basic Money Management Tips . Then, gather all of your household bills /invoices and grab a calculator!

Review your bills and separate them by the headings that you see on the budget worksheet. If you are typing your numbers into the worksheet, you’ll notice that the final totals will automatically calculate for you! If you print the worksheet and are writing in the numbers, you’ll need to use a calculator. List your monthly take-home pay and then subtract the total of your budgeted expenses. The sum will give you the total of your budgeted monthly spendable income.

Repeat this step with your actual total expenses. The sum will give you to total of your actual monthly spendable income. When you know your limit, you can live within it!
