Guess what I did today................
The file above is for bills and receipts and inside each month is a list of bills. It's just a piece of notebook paper...nothing fancy. It has the name of the bill, amount due, balance, interest paid, amount paid etc. I have Quicken on my pc which allows me to pay using check, EFT(electronic file transfer for when you pay bills online), DEP for deposit and SAV for savings. I use SAV for deducting per month what I would need to pay bills that aren't monthly, such as taxes etc.
There are some pictures of some old budget books/systems I used to use and are still good but now I do everything on my pc. I downloaded a great, yet simple, budget spreadsheet from Laurie Perry/Crazy Aunt Purl . Scroll to the bottom of her website and on the right side you will find "Crazy Aunt Purl's Budget Worksheet". It's the one I use and it works...well...as long as you plug in the correct numbers and "face the music". LOL!
