Bill Payment Checklist by: DIY Home Sweet Home

PictureMonthly Bi-Weekly Budget

How many of you live paycheck to paycheck?!? Rhetorical question… How difficult is it to live the lifestyle you want and pay all your bills?!?! Ugghhhh… It’s such a drag!!!!
At the end of 2014 I decided that I would extend my building better habits into my finances as well as my daily habits (read more here).
As a teacher in Florida I don’t make much to begin with and being signed up for summer pay makes my bi-weekly paychecks even thinner. Needless to say, the past few months on summer pay have been a struggle. In an effort to minimize the overdrafts and get it together financially I said,
“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”

I went online and searched for budget worksheets.
I found the checklist above. What a great resource!!! I’m always trying to remember if I paid that bill or the other and now I can check it off and know for sure that it’s paid.

I also created this document:

I couldn’t find a worksheet that had everything I wanted and most had things I didn’t need. So I made my own.
It has already been extremely helpful. I love knowing how much has to go where and how much I’m going to have left over or if I need to move things around in order to cover the basics.
Feel free to download and edit it for your needs!!!
I hope that moving forward into 2015 my finances and yours will see an abundant increase!!!
Let’s be good stewards of that which the Lord has blessed us with. That in our obedience and good stewardship the Lord may bless us with more than we could ever hope for or imagine!!!
Happy Budgeting!!!
