Budgeting is not something to be afraid of. It is actually a simple process if you are willing to devote a few minutes every day or a specific time slot weekly. Sure, it is easier said than done, but today I am going to share with you one of the ways that I keep my finances organized by using a Budget Binder.

I absolutely adore printables. They make my life much easier. Anytime I can make my life easier with a worksheet I jump on it. If you are ready to start increasing your savings account then now is the time to take action. I also have a video I created to tell you exactly how I use each printable.

2016 Budget Binder breakdown:

Monthly & Yearly Financial Goals
I like to sit down and set monthly and yearly financial goals. The Monthly Financial Goals sheet will allow you to reflect back and figure out what you can do differently each month. It also has an area for you to write down what you need to do to reach those goals.

The Yearly Financial Goals sheet offers you a place to write out your major goals for the year.
For example, one of your yearly goals may be to save up enough money to replace the roof on your home. You could then write that in for Goal #1 along with the estimated cost and a date for when you would like to have it completed by.

This will help you to see why you are saving money or cutting back on other expenses throughout the year. This can also be a place where you write in a vacation goal. It will give you a deadline to have enough money saved up for your vacation. Then, each month your goal might be to put away an extra $100 for that vacation and you can use the monthly financial goal sheet for a more specific goal.

Monthly Bill Tracker
I love having this sheet in my binder because it allows me to pay my bills on time and stay organized. One of the top financial struggles I hear from my readers is remembering to pay bills on time. I hate to admit it, but I am definitely guilty of not paying bills on time too. Don’t you just hate having to pay a late payment fee? Those costs really add up. This printable will prevent you from having to put out extra money each month when paying your bills.

Monthly Budget
If you have been around my blog then you have probably seen my monthly budget printable. It is extremely simple to use and I have heard a lot of positive feedback from my readers who use it.

For this sheet, you can easily track your income and expenses each month by filling in your totals. If you prefer, you can print my blank version and fill in all of your own expenses rather than using the pre-filled categories. I have a column for estimated so that you can budget your money and then a column for the actual amount of the expense each month.

To make it easy, I have even created a downloadable Excel spreadsheet that will figure out the totals for you each month.

Bank Account Information
This sheet is pretty much self explanatory, but it is nice to have all of this information together in one place. I have a separate bank account for my blog and we also have separate bank accounts for our three boys. It is nice to have the account numbers and routing information handy for when I need to make any kind of transaction. This is a great place to keep information for a savings account that you can directly deposit money into from each paycheck.

Debt Paydown
I am sure you can agree that paying down debt is extremely difficult. Being able to find extra money to put towards your debt each month is hard. You can use this printable to keep track of each creditor you have. For example, you will want to print out a copy for each loan or credit card. This will help you to keep track of the amount of debt you have with each one while staying organized to pay it off. It will help you to track the interest rates, balances and payments you make.

You can print a separate sheet for each creditor. For example, you can print a copy of this debt payoff planner for your car loan and then another copy for a credit card that you have.

This will help you to keep track of your debt and help you to stay organized while paying it off. You can track the interest rate, balances and all payments that you make. This sheet can help you to decide which debt you are going to try to tackle first.

Blank Calendar
I like to include this calendar so that I can write down important dates and even keep track of when we will be receiving paychecks or other income. This will help you to figure out how much money you can budget each month. There are certain months where my husband will receive an extra paycheck because of the amount of weeks in that month.

This is also good to use if you have a special event of party coming up so that you can plan ahead for it.

To create your own 2016 Budget Binder I recommend that you print the number of pages below. You can then put them into a 3-ring binder.
1- Cover
12- Monthly Financial Goals
1- Yearly Financial Goals
12- Monthly Bill Tracker
12- Monthly Budget
1- Bank Account Information {unless more are necessary}
Debt Paydown {however many are necessary}
12 – Blank Calendars
1- Holidays & Observances

Once you have everything printed you will then need to assemble it. I use a standard white binder that has the plastic piece in the front to slip the cover page into. This is how I assemble mine, but you can put it in the order that works best for you:

Holidays & Observances
Bank Account Information
Debt Paydown
Yearly Financial Goals
Blank Calendar
Monthly Financial Goals
Monthly Budget
Monthly Bill Tracker
Repeat for each month {Blank Calendar – Monthly Bill Tracker}

  1. Is there a way to print these pages with a border or move the margins? I have printed out a few and there’s no way to use the far left column once you hole punch these sheets…

  2. Hi, I signed up for the free budget worksheets, which I got, but I accidentally deleted the e-mail. I signed up again yesterday, but never received them. Is it because I had already signed up for them?

  3. I have subscribed and I’ve even received emails, but I haven’t received the email with the budget binder worksheets? Did I do something wrong?

  4. I am wondering where I can access the blank “Monthly Budget” that mentioned in the description before the photo? The email I got did not have a blank option

  5. I signed up and downloaded some of your sheets. I went back in to print/download more and I can’t get another email sent to me to sign in and I deleted the first email sent to log in. What do I do?
