Are you always worrying about money? Sometimes not being aware of exactly how much you have to spend creates anxiety. That’s why it’s a good idea to make track your expenses. Itemize them and you can see the big picture. Maybe you’re better off than you thought or maybe you’re not. But it’s always better to know than hide your head in the sand.

Budgets are very helpful if you fill them in accurately. The more detailed the better. You’ll have a better understanding of where your money is going.

Track your spending. Make categories. Make categories within categories.

Try to be organized. For the first month put all your bills in envelopes and mark them and put them in the appropriate category.

For example:  Food is under groceries, but if you’re having a party, these food items should be under entertainment and not groceries.

Other kinds of “food” would be restaurants, take out, coffee and snacks, etc be honest with yourself. Put each in its own category and you will have an idea of how much you’re spending. It might be a shock.

Try not to underestimate your actual expenses.  Here are some free down loads of household budget worksheets
