Wow it’s amazing how fast 2020 is going by already! I know, I shouldn’t say that. This March 2020 Family Budget Update is covering all the basis of changes we’ve made in the past few months. I plan to do these budget updates quarterly now, to allow room for other great content!
Starting a family budget doesn’t have to be restrictive! Look at it in a way that you are actually telling your money what to do rather than wondering where it went. Then not having enough to pay the bills… Stressful!
In this month’s family budget update, I am going to walk you through all the numbers that went in and out of our family’s bank account.
We share all the numbers in hopes of turning on some light bulbs to help you manage your family’s finances and set financial goals based off what you guys value most in life!
