How to Budget on a Fluctuating Income

At different times throughout our life, my husband has had a fluctuating income.  He has worked in the construction industry and in sales with commission only income.  I know it can be difficult to budget and plan each month, when each month your income changes and sometimes drastically.  We have had times when my husband made $7,000 in one month and then only $2,000 in another month.  …

Ten Benefits of Budgeting

Budgeting is a basic tool for managing your finances.  Unfortunately because of the negative connotation that most people have about budgeting we avoid it.  We think of budgeting as restricting.  We think of budgeting like extra work.  I recently attended a leadership class where they taught if you know the “why” of what you are doing, then you will be better equipped to effectively complete whatever it is you are doing with purpose and direction, in knowing the why.…

Paying off Debt

I know when you are in debt, it can be difficult to face the numbers.  I know people who will not open their mail, who just throw their bills in a drawer where they cannot be seen.
 
I have felt the pressure of debt, avoiding the numbers will not make it go away, or make you feel the burden any less.  I know what it is like to lay in bed thinking about your debt, wondering if you made a payment, thinking about extra fees.  You will find if you write it out and are at…

Envelope System

If you need help sticking to your budget the Envelope System works wonders. I first heard of the envelope sytem at my local church, then also after attending Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University.  It is a proven statistic that people spend more money when paying with credit cards and debit cards verses paying with cash. When you are paying with cash you are more likely to think about what you are purchasing. 
 
How does it work?
You create…

Save Money: All you have to do is ask!

When trying to save money or make your money go farther a great place to start is calling your current providers of cable, auto insurance, cell phone carriers, internet provider, etc.
 
Especially if your contract is up for renewal or close to renewal it’s the perfect time to call around for other quotes.  If you are pleased with your current provider and do not want to change do not be afraid to mention other competitors prices or promotions, most companies will…

How I Cut My Grocery Budget in Half

I used to spend around $400 a month on groceries and another $200 a month on household products (toiletries, diapers, laundry detergent, etc.)  Since I began couponing I spend $300 a month on both groceries and household items together and some months I only spend $200 for our family of 5.
  
Four years ago a group of my friends at church started couponing and telling me how much money they were saving on groceries.  I was excited to get involved and give it a go.  I…

This post is to encourage you that you can budget and stick…

Teach kids About Money At An Early Age

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

Given…

Product Reviews as Income? I see Problems

I have to get this off my chest, my two cents about why I understand the whole point behind claiming product reviews, but why I think it’s going to cause an issue when it comes to claiming them as “income“. As a blogger we are required to claim the products we receive for free as income because reality is the product is our payment to write a post sharing our honest opinion about the product.



I get it, the IRS wants to get their part in the tax area, totally understand that. The big… Continue
