How to Budget Using a Planner

Now to use your planner to help set and stick to a budget, you'll want to focus on a few key things. You'll want to keep track of:

  • Monthly Income (including extra money you weren't accounting for).
  • Monthly Expenses (bills, services you pay for, and your food budget). 
  • Personal Spending Habits (buying things such as clothes, books, makeup, etc.) 

Once you've done that, it's time to decide why you're setting a budget. Do you want to save a certain amount of money by a specific date? Or are you just trying to cut down on unnecessary spending habits? Whatever the case may be, figure out your reasoning! 

Now that you've set up a budget, all you need to do to see good results, is to be diligent and keep track of all your financial actions in your planner. As you continue to consistently use it, you'll be able to meet your budgeting goals in no time.
