Monthly Budget Sheets

These monthly budget sheets are perhaps the most important part of your free Budget Binder printables!

If you have been intimidated by budgeting in the past, you don’t need to be! Think of your monthly budget as simply the mini goals that are going to help you reach your own financial awesome. Remember—you are the boss of your budget. But then once you have created your budget, let it be the boss of you, to keep you on track financially.

With these monthly budget sheets, you will record your monthly income and expenses so that you can truly manage your money!

The main categories have been designated in order for you to easily plan and organize your budget, so all you need to do is add the specific budget categories that meet the needs and circumstances of your family.

Some of the fixed expenses (meaning, the amount generally stays the same every month) you may want to include in your budget are these:

  • Tithing
  • Charitable giving
  • Rent or mortgage
  • Renters insurance
  • Homeowners insurance and property taxes (if not paid with the mortgage)
  • Car payment
  • Automobile insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Health insurance
  • Dental insurance
  • Internet
  • Cell phones
  • Cable/satellite TV
  • Home phone
  • Gym or rec center membership
  • Retirement savings

In addition to these fixed expenses, you will likely have a number of variable expenses (where the amount spent fluctuates from month to month) such as the following:

  • Groceries
  • Household items (such as cleaning products, towels, and related items)
  • Eating out
  • Gasoline/fuel
  • Public transportation
  • Clothing
  • Utilities (electricity, natural gas, water, sewer, garbage)
  • Toiletries, makeup, and related items
  • Child care
  • Pet food and supplies
  • House maintenance
  • Home furnishings and appliances
  • Car maintenance
  • Education/tuition

Expense Tracker

With the expense tracker, you will record all of your expenses, how much they are for, and when they are due (if applicable). This form can help ensure you get your bills paid on time every month.

Debt Payoff Tracker

The debt payoff tracker will allow you to keep up-to-date on how much you owe for each one of your debts and when your target date is to get each one paid off. You will also see at a glance your progress toward reaching that payoff goal.

 Print a separate debt tracker page for each of your debts you are working to pay off, record your progress regularly, and you will be surprised at how quickly you are able to crush your debt and get it out of your life!

Savings Goal Tracker

This is another powerful free Budget Binder printable in your financial toolbox. Use a separate sheet to keep track of your progress toward each of your awesome savings goals.

On each sheet, record the savings goal amount, how much you have saved already, how long you plan to save for (if known), what you are saving for, and why you are saving for this financial goal.

Don’t overlook or neglect to complete the line for why you are saving! Your financial why is very important because it will help give you the motivation to reach your financial goals!
