Setting up a Monthly Budget Book

Setting up a Monthly Budget Book

– This post contains affiliate links. I will receive a small commission if you purchase the product or service through the link –

I have been using my Erin Condren Monthly Planner for a couple of month now and used it for my January and February budget. The set up that I used works well for me and helps me to keep track of my budget. Today I will show you how I set up my Monthly Budget Book.

As mentioned before, I am using an Erin Condren Monthly Planner for my Budget Book but you can use any other planner or notebook. I reviewed the Monthly Planner in a previous post, you can check it out here.  If you are interested in purchasing this planner and haven’t ordered from Erin Condren before, you can use my referral link to receive $10 off your first order and I will receive a $10 credit on my account as well.

 

 

Monthly Overview

The monthly planner has monthly calendar pages and lined note pages. I am using this page to keep track of any income or expenses. The overview will help you with planning ahead and lists all income bills due for the month.

The first thing I do is to write down my pay days and any other income that I will receive during the month. I am using green income stickers which are available in my Etsy store . Green is for income and red is for expenses. If I now the amounts, I will write them down.

Next I am doing the same for my expenses. Here I am only tracking bills that are due during the month. Again, I will write down the amounts if I know how much it will be. Sometimes you won’t know the exact amount until the bill comes in.

This planner also comes with a sidebar for notes. I like to use it to list all my bills and check them off as they are paid. Most of my bills are on auto pay but I still check them off as they come out of the accounts. Dates sometimes vary due to weekends and holidays.

Now I will show you how I plan my Budget. Here I am using the note pages of the planner. For decoration I am using stickers out of the Erin Condren Monthly Sticker Book. There are headers for each month and other pretty stickers for decoration.

 

Budget Set up

This is my layout for the budget. The income is split into 3 different incomes and the expenses are categorized into fixed expenses and variable expenses. I tried to keep all categories pretty general without many details. This will give me a basic overview and not be too complicated.

At the beginning of the month I will write down my budgeted amounts. If you are still figuring out your budget, start by looking at your bank records for the last 3 months (or more) and categorize your income and expenses. I wrote down my base income (no overtime) and all the bills for the month. The amount that is left is allocated between any other variable expense categories such as food, gas, shopping etc… The goal is obviously not to go over budget and have money left at the end of the month to save or put towards debt. I am trying to build up my emergency fund so I use this little piggy bank sticker to write down how much I put towards it 🙂

I hope you liked my little write up and please join my facebook group to see more monthly budget setups and share yours. Thank you!

My new Monthly Erin Condren Planner

My new Monthly Erin Condren Planner

– This post contains affiliate links. I will receive a small commission if you purchase the product or service through the link –

My new Erin Condren Monthly Planner arrived today and I can’t wait to set it up and start using it. I will use this planner solely as a budget book where I will enter my income and my expenses for each month and record important financial information. There will be a separate post on how I will set it up, so please check back soon.

In this post I will show you some of the different pages in this planner. If you are interested in purchasing this planner and haven’t ordered from Erin Condren before, you can use my referral link to receive $10 off your first order and I will receive a $10 credit on my account as well.

 

 

Monthly Planner Overview

The monthly planner comes in two different style. A regular monthly planner and a deluxe monthly planner. The regular monthly planner is perfect bound size 7 x 9 inches in a neutral theme. The deluxe version of the planner gives you have few more options. I can be ordered size 7 x 9  or 8.5 x 11 with a neutral or colorful interior theme. The coil binding makes it easier to turn the pages and allows for extra bulk when adding stickers to the planner.  I am using the regular monthly planner which you can see on the picture below

 

The first few pages will give you an overview of the whole year which makes planning out the year a lot easier. These pages also leave a lot of space for any notes.

EC Monthly Second Page

Next you will see a page that lists all the Holidays for 2017, it’s great to have it all together on one page. There is also another overview for the year which allows you to write down whatever you prefer. Depending on what you will use your monthly planner for, this could be Birthdays, Goals, Bills, Vacation etc….

Monthly Overview Pages

Now on to the monthly overview pages! There will be a page like this for each month. I am really liking the monthly pages more and more. My current planner has monthly and weekly pages but I find myself looking at the monthly overview pages more often. A lot of appointments and events come up a few weeks ahead and you are able to see right away what else is going on that day. I will be using this monthly planner as a budget book so I will be writing down expenses/ bills and paydays here.

Note pages

The planner gives you plenty of note pages to keep track of important events, your goals, recipes or whatever you feel like. Since I will be using mine as a budget book,

I am planning on writing a budget for each month, a spending log, account overview, debt payoff tracker etc….

 

I hope you liked my little review and let me know in the comments if you have any questions. Keep an eye out for my post about how I set up my monthly planner as a budget book. It will probably go up in the next few days.

Starting my 2017 Bullet Journal

Starting my 2017 Bullet Journal

BulletJournal

I always wanted to start my own bullet journal since I came across those awesome pages designs on Pinterest. I have been saving design ideas to my Pinterest board for a while and am finally starting my own bullet journal. It’s just in time for the beginning of the New Year.

 

Supplies

Bullet Journal Supplies

Starting a bullet journal does not require anything special. It can be just as simple as a piece of paper and a pen.  I have been doing some research and the most recommended supplies are:

I have also bought:

this pen costs a little more money but does write nicely!

Pens

 

Getting started

How do you get started if you have never started a bullet journal before? I have read many great bullet journal blogs and created a Pinterest board with a collection of page ideas. To start, I wrote down everything that I wanted to track in my bullet journal. So far my bullet journal will have the following pages:

  • Table of Contents
  • Overview of the Year 2017 (12 months /page)
  • Goals
  • Planning ahead (3 months / page)
  • Birthdays
  • Monthly Overview (2 pages) x 12
  • Weekly Overview (2 pages) x 52
  • Mood Tracker
  • Run Tracker
  • Weight Tracker

I am thinking about adding a few pages that will financial information such as savings goals, income/expense overview and maybe some pages that will keep track of my social media accounts.

Bullet Journal Pages

The following are some of my pages:

This page has the overview of the Year 2017

Bullet Journal Overview

Next is the monthly overview page. I have started with January but will be adding a few more things to the page. I will be doing the same for all the other months as well.

Bullet Journal Monthly

Here is a picture my weight tracker page. I will be using this page to keep track of my weight loss. We’ll see if I can lose 40lbs by the end of 2017.

Bulllet Journal Weight

I enjoy going for a run. This page will help me keep track of all my run through out the year. I am planning on running 3x a week. A couple short runs and a longer run on the weekend would be good.

Bullet Journal Running

Well that’s it for now. I will be posting again as soon as I have a few more pages completed. You can follow me on Instagram to see my planner and bullet journal layouts @organizedandhappier or Pinterest @organizedhappy !

Review of my favorite pens for my planner

Hi guys,

today I was thinking it would be a good idea to show you some of my pens that I use for my planner. There are many different kinds of pens out there and I just want to give you a quick review of the ones that I use.

For me it is very important that the pen does not bleed through. When I get a new planner or journal, one of the first things I usually do is to make a small mark with the pen in the corner of one of the back pages. That way I can see if it is ok or not. I have done it too many times where I get all excited and start writing in my new planner and then be disappointed when I flip the page to see it bled through the page and onto the next one. Not good. Usually makes me rip out the page (if its a notebook) and start fresh….

Planner Writing

I’ll be showing you three different kinds of pens. First one will be Paper Mate Ink Joy 0.7, next Sharpie Ultra Fine Point and last Staedtler triplus roller.

I am writing on the note pages of my Erin Condren planner

Paper Mate Ink Joy 0.7

The Paper Mate Ink Joy pens are my favorite pens. The pens are gel pens and I use them daily for my planner. The writing is very smooth and they come in many great colors. They are comfortable to hold. There is some very very light shadowing on the back pages but no bleed trough.

 PaperMate InkJoy Pens

Paper Mate Ink Joy

Sharpie Ultra Fine Point

These are my second favorite pens. The Sharpie Permanent Markers, Ultra Fine Point pens however do bleed through the page as you can see in one of the pictures. They are great for writing on stickers and washi tape. Again, there are many great colors available if you prefer to color code your planner or journal. The Sharpies are felt tip pens.

Sharpie Pens

Staedtler Triplus Roller

The Staedtler Triplus Roller Pens, as the name says, are roller ball pens. I am usually not a big fan of roller ball pens but these work great. I haven’t been using them much in my planner but will use them when I start my bullet journal in 2017 (stay tuned for bullet journal posts). A little downside for my with these pens is that they are a bit too skinny for to hold but that’s probably because I am used to holding wider pens.

Staedler Pens

Below is a picture showing the backside of the page. You can see the bleed through of the Sharpie pens. The Paper Mate and Staedtler pen have minor shadowing.

Meal Planning Made Easy – 5 Easy Steps

mealplanning1Meal Planning Made Easy – 5 Easy Steps

I have been keeping track of our expenses for the last few months using my printable worksheets. It is great seeing where all the money goes but also a big eye opener on how much money we are actually spending (wasting).

One of our biggest expense is food, this includes groceries and dining out. We have consistently spent about $1,300 each month. We are not a large family and knowing that other families only spend about $500 – 700 on food each month, our grocery budget needs to be at least cut in half!

I know there are certain factors that led to the high spending. My husband and I are both working full time, often stopping at the grocery store after work to pick something up for Dinner. Because we didn’t feel like spending a lot of time cooking once we got home, we usually pick up something that was already prepared or just needed to go in the oven. Oh, and don’t forget the snacks! We are eating out a lot on the weekend or before/after our son’s Hockey practice during the week.

Next month I will try to cut our grocery budget to $700. That would be about $600 dollars in savings!!! Wow!!! That is a big motivation to plan my meals ahead!

Step 1: Download printable meal plan layout

I believe the best way is to plan your meals ahead for the next week or even month if you like. This shouldn’t just include dinner but also breakfast, lunch and snacks. You can download a free printable layout here that will help you plan. I will be using it for my meal plan this week.  You can download the file here -> weekly meal plan

My meal plan starts on a Monday because I usually do my planning and grocery shopping on the Sunday before. If you would like to start your meal plan on a different day (many people start their week on a Sunday) let me know in the comments and I’ll upload another version of the file.

mealplan

Step 2: View local flyers for great savings

A good idea is to look at your local grocery flyers for items that are on sale and plan your meals around these ingredients. For example, if ground beef is on sale maybe have Spaghetti, Chili and Hamburgers that week.

Step 3: Write down meals for the week

Now it’s time to write down all your meals in the meal plan. As you write down the meals I would also write down all the ingredients for each recipe on a separate sheet and use it later as your grocery list. That way you won’t forget anything. You can download a printable copy of the shopping list here ->grocery shopping list

shoppinglist

Step 4: Keep favorite recipes

There are some recipes you might make more often than others. For these recipes I have a separate binder that I keep in my kitchen cabinets. I will post some of my favorite recipes in a separate post in the future. You can find the recipe printable file here -> recipes

 

recipe

 

Step 5: Cook ahead if you have the time

If you have extra time during the week or on the weekend, you can cook some of your meals ahead or prepare all the ingredients so when it’s time to cook you are not busy washing, cutting and mixing everything.


Another idea might be to keep a log of frequent products that you buy and prices throughout the year or just the regular price and sale price. That way you can see if the “sale price” is a good deal or not and if there have been better sales before. I have seen items that had a great big sale sign and when you looked closer it was only 2 cents off the regular price. That was for a $2 item. Many people would just see the big sign and grab two or more items because they are on sale.

On your recipe sheet you could write down the estimate price of the ingredient and calculate the estimate cost per serving. I know it seems like a lot of work but just focus on main ingredients.

Let me know if you have any other ideas

 

Simple Washi Planner Layouts – Erin Condren Planner

Simple Washi Planner Layouts – Erin Condren Planner

I have been using my Erin Condren planner for over 2 months now. I usually prepare my new layout on the weekend before the new weeks starts and fill out the fields as the week progresses.

Over the last 10 weeks I have accumulated over 125 rolls of washi tape. yikes! However, I did not purchase any additional planner stickers other than the ones that came with my planner. I am quite happy with just using washi tape for the layouts.

purple washi layout

This blog post will show some my weekly layouts. They usually look very similar but will have different colors and designs.

blue washi layout

I am thinking about trying to make my own stickers soon. It shouldn’t be to hard and I will make a post with instructions as well. The stickers will be great for kids sports schedules, bills to keep track off, pay days and TV shows for example. Something that is reoccurring. All I need to get is sticker paper and a color printer ( currently only have a black laser printer).

Sometimes there is a lot of white space left over when there is not much going on for day. I usually try to fill it with washi tape when the week is done.

flower washi layout

Using washi tape instead of store bought stickers is in my opinion a lot easier on the wallet. I was able to get most of the washi that I bought with a 40% off coupon. They come in tubes with 9+ rolls.

I like the tubes that already come with color combinations that match. It makes it easier to put together a great layout. As you can see there are various sizes of washi tape included.

washi tube

I have done a few layouts with only one kind of washi tape. There was this blue tape that I really really liked (below) but nothing else went well with it. I think it still looks great. Too many colors are sometimes too distracting.

Washi Layout plain

And another one that I had to do already for Thanksgiving. A few weeks ahead but so much fun to put together. Can’t wait to do a Christmas theme in December.

fall washi layout

You can see that I cut the tape in to flags or weekend banners. Sometimes it is a bit time consuming but worth it.
