Does anyone have suggestions for a site to find budgets for a new family with one income source?
I don't do the money stuff, that's Ed's department but I know there's a lot of good free ones out there, hopefully someone uses a specific one and can tell you about it. Good luck!
Sorry, we don't really use a budget. We just keep track with our online banking.
My husband does ours. He pays mortgage and groceries from one check (plus gas), then the rest of the bills on the other. If there happens to be any left it goes in the savings account. He just took the date the bills are due on, keeps track on a spreadsheet and changes it every time he pays it. I prefer pencil and paper or something like Microsoft Money-but he's doing it and it works. We also keep track of 'extras'-things that aren't in the normal budjet and color code on the spreadsheet for importance... When we get enough built up, the next thing in line gets taken care of.

Hi, my boyfriend and I have recently found out we are having a baby, a little unexpected but now that it is becoming reality we are very excited!
