Since I have a husband working abroad, I’ll make sure that when he sends us some money for bills or allowance, it is always posted in my budget notebook. You might call this an organizer for your busy schedule but for me I call this my budget notebook.
Nevertheless, I post all my expenses on this notebook, and at the bottom part, at the reminder notes, I wrote their all the things I need to pay for the week, my grocery budget and my sister’s pay out since I pay her in exchange of the things she is doing at home, when I am out for work.
If I post all the bills I need to pay on the day that my husband will wired me money, with this organizer, I can do it in advance since the dates are all posted already. (Of course that’s how organizer does right?) Thus, I will be able to do the budget a month in advance, in that way I can also save some money since I have all the bills taken good care already before it is due.
I also bought a columnar, about 22 columns so for me to be aware how much did we incur each month. And if we have incurred too much for a certain month, I make sure that we will improve by next month. Believe it or not, I know how much we spend for each year.
