August 2017 Real Life Budget Update – $2,182 Saved!

It’s that time of the month again where we vulnerably open up our bank account and share with you in our budget update everything that went in and out of our real life budget over the last 30 days.

With hubby’s schedule changing it is leaving even less time for date nights or family time where all five of us can be together at the same time. It’s things like this that have always caused speed bumps in our budget in unexpected ways.

How a simple one REAL LIFE family budget helped pay off almost $20,000 in debt in less than one year and now puts over $2,000 into savings each month! If you are overwhelmed by debt and are trying to live on one income, learn from this family how to pay off debt quick and start working towards your savings goals! Learn how to save money on a small budget!

That is exactly why we share our family’s one income budget updates with you every single month!

I hope it helps and as always, PLEASE feel free to leave me any questions down in the comments. I am more than happy to help where I can!

    Hi Brittany,

    I do like the monthly budget videos, but they would be more interesting and helpful if you compared the budget to actual spending. Something similar to Stephanie at Six Figures Under. Then you could share line item by line item where you came in under budget and where was over budget.

    My favorite videos are the CR series – please finish them!!
