    Oh that can be very frustrating! Which part of making a budget do you find most difficult?

    I look at how often I get paid and what due dates are on the bills. I work from there to figure out what gets paid when. Like I always pay my rent on the first, and usually pay my electric bill then too. Then in the middle of the month I take care of the other smaller bills like cell phone, internet and car note.

    yea that sounds about right with the dates and stuff. My husband is the one that's working and this is very new to me not having my own money. Its hard to figure out when to spend and what to spend at the right time.

    It makes me feel good when the bills are paid on time too. he's not asking me to do it but I want to do it just so I feel better. we have another little boy on the way and I want to make sure before he arrives we have some thing in place.

    I don't like using web sites that want to much info. I downloaded the app on my phone and all I remember is it asking for bank info....any other useful ones Meg?

      We usually take all our bills a nd put them in order of when they need to be paid. I use to write it out in one column and then I'd put in the other column what we made and subtract the bills from it to see where we were at each month....that was back when we didn't have a computer or cell phone. :) I still prefer to do it on paper. Call me old school.

      Hello, I am a newly married stay at home mom. I have a beautiful very active 4yr old boy and pregnant with another boy. I'm looking for some moms to hang out with and maybe have play dates or just have mom time to keep my mind in tact.
