Weekly Spending Sheet & Savings Tracker



I'm officially a big kid. I have created a budget. Gasp! With my move happening in about 6 months, I want and need to start saving. With all the possible expenses, security deposits, and rent - I want a safety net. I'm hoping for $10,000 by the time I move - mid June.

I googled and googled trying to find the best budget sheet for me. The simpler, the better. Although I like pretty colors and patterns, the ones I was finding were way too much. I want to concentrate on the numbers, not the six different chevron patterns decorating the page.

I found these sheets here. The sheets are from Mead's line "Organizher". I've seen these products at Target. Super cute. The website offers free printables and I am all over that. Totes budget friendly! ;)

The link above is for the general website. Click here for the free printables page.

There is also a page for tracking your ultimate goal. Perfect!

Here's what the Spending Sheet looks like if you were to by it from a store.


Love the colors and the inside is still simple! The sheets in this match the free ones exactly. I think I'll splurge on this right before my move. It'll be the ultimate big girl bill tracker. :)

Update on Week 1 : I have unsubscribed to most of the emails I get from various shopping outlets. I wake up with 30+ emails each morning. The temptation is always there!!!!!! Seeing sale prices flash at me all day long had to be put to a stop. I unsubscribed from all of the major retail shops. I still have 3 pop up shop emails coming through. Those are my favorite. Craft supplies = a must have for a blogger/entrepreneur.

I also stayed under my budget for week 1! Woot woot!

  2. Good luck with the budget! I try to keep one but usually forget to write down when I spend little amounts, which doesn't help.
