    It’s that time of year again—many of us have set financial goals for 2019 and hopefully that means a lot of us are re-vamping (or starting) our budgets. Making a budget can be overwhelming if you don’t go into it with some kind of game plan, so let’s cover so basic tips to help you get off to a great start this year.

    Before You Start

    The important foundation of making a budget is to figure out your why. The “why” of your budget isn’t necessarily going to be the same as your best friends. For us, at one point our biggest reason for having a budget was to manage our money in order to pay off student loans. Once those were paid off, our focus shifted to managing our money so that we could afford to live on only my husband’s income. What is your goal? What is important to you?

    When you have a goal or a “why,” you can refer back to it every time you consider purchasing something outside of your budget and remember the greater reason for having your budget. Every unplanned purchase is going to come out of some place in your budget, and while sometimes that’s fine, it that can help you make better decisions about how you spend your money.

    Making a Budget

    The first official step in making a budget is to make a list of all of your monthly expenses. Then, add big expenses that happen less often but are predictable, like car taxes, insurance payments, or healthcare deductibles.

    If you need some more help getting started on this part of budgeting, download Dave Ramsey’s FREE Guide to Budgeting.

    Let’s pretend you’re making a budget and your family income is $45,000/year, or about $3,750 after taxes. Using figures averaged across several financial experts, the following percentages are a good place to start when trying to figure out a good amount to set aside in your budget. Of course, we can’t go into all the nuances of each person’s situation—maybe you have a family of 6, so your food costs are higher, but you have health insurance through one spouse’s job, so you don’t have to pay that. Your budget should work for YOU and match YOUR priorities.

    • Housing/household purchases: 25%
    • Food: 12%
    • Utilities: 7%
    • Charity: 10%
    • Transportation: 10%
    • Clothing, entertainment, etc.: 4%
    • Medical/health insurance: 7%
    • Miscellaneous: 5%
    • Savings/debt repayment: 20%

    Using those percentages yields the following amounts:

    Category Monthly amount
    Housing (mortgage/rent, taxes, insurance, repairs etc.) $937.50
    Food/groceries $450
    Utilities (electric/water/sewer/phone/internet/cable) $262.5
    Charity/giving $375
    Transportation (gas, insurance, taxes, repairs) $375
    Clothing, entertainment, etc. $150
    Medical bills/health insurance $262.50
    Miscellaneous $187.50
    Debt payments/savings $750
    Total $3750

    Other categories you may need to include: child care expenses, retirement contributions, kids’ activity fees.

        amazon coupons

        Though Amazon offers lots of coupons on all kinds of products, sorting through them all can feel overwhelming (and sometimes just a big waste of time), so I’ve gone through and picked out some of the highest savings and best deals.

        Tip: Most prices are with “Subscribe & Save” selected. Go ahead and subscribe selecting the next order 3-6 months away and then you can manage your subscriptions and cancel when you packages arrive. You will not get the same price or the coupon on the second order… so you are going to want to cancel later.
