It’s March 1, and I declare it Mindful March. We made one big financial goal for 2019 and are striving and working hard to make progress.

Looking for ways to save money on groceries? Groceries is one budget category that can get out of control very quickly.

One month down for 2019. How did you do with your financial goals in January? We have only one financial goal for 2019 and we made some progress in January.

On January 25, you might not want to even think about Christmas. It’s 20 degrees outside and all you want to focus on is warmer weather and summer vacation. I promise I won’t start reciting Christmas carols, but while the holidays are still somewhat fresh in our minds, I think it would be a good […] The post Christmas Savings Club appeared first on Family Balance Sheet. ...

In previous years, I would create a long list of financial goals, only to have little accomplished by the end of the December. Too many shiny quarters and not enough focus gets absolutely nothing accomplished. I almost stopped writing goals down altogether. In 2018, we decided to focus on just 2 main financial goals and before […] The post Our 2019 Financial Goal appeared first on Family Balance Sheet. ...

One word. Just one word to focus on during the upcoming year. It’s been a trend every January and I’ve always found it interesting to read how other people have come up with their one word. I chose a word back in 2014 and by the end of that year I forgot what the word […] The post My Word for 2019 appeared first on Family Balance Sheet. ...

Here’s a peek at what we ate this week on our budget. I’ve had to bump up the budget over the years as my kids have grown and started to eat as much as adults. I now spend $600-700/month on groceries and I struggle to remember those days when I spent $400-500. My kids ate […] The post What We Ate this Week on our Budget 12.14.18 appeared first on Family ...
