Family Budget Tool

Go to the Budget Builder Tool

Are you ready to make a budget? These are the three most important keys to having a successful budget that really works:
  1. Make realistic goals you can keep
    Don’t put down $0 for entertainment expenses if you know you are going to spend more than that. Be honest with yourself.
  2. Learn new ways to manage your money
    There are many ways to save money, get better credit, and make your money grow. 
  3. Maintain your budget
    Creating a budget is just the start. The only way it will work is if you remember to update your expenses and make changes during the month to make sure you stay on track.

I was wondering where to go for learning pay per click. Your video really helped. Very neatly and clearly explained. And thanks for explaining it from the basics. I think I can start working on ppc now.

Family budgeting is all about choosing between the options available to us, including those that help us to stay out of debt. One of those important options we have includes creating a family budget that meets our individual needs. Unfortunately, for many of us, budgets are a reality check that we try to avoid. For example, our family budget might tell us that we make enough money each month to pay that electric bill, but we need to give up going out to eat twice a week, or eliminate a habit of buying such expensive clothing or take paycheck loans in order to afford all these things.

This is indeed a great post. This is very helpful. I also heard this. A recent survey found that most Americans could not afford to fulfill a sudden expense of $1,000 if it were to come up. There are not several people who are able to put away enough to deal with even that much in emergency expenses. These Americans usually need installment loans to pay for emergencies. Financial crisis is one big issue that all of us has to face.

I am having the same problem with the entering expense information.

We used budget tool for the first time. Entered Income and Expense information. When we went to update financial info, the income fields showed up just fine. When we went to enter expense info, however, the categories didn't change to expense fields, they stayed as income. Is this a glitch that is being worked out? Thanks.

I really like this website.

The family budget tool is very useful, but will you ever provide it in Spanish? I love that I can change the language of the site, but I noticed that the Spanish version lacks the Family Budget Tool. Is it in your future plans to create one in Spanish? It would be a great help at my organization, but only in Spanish.

Hi brookechcdc, I am the Producer of the Beehive Money section. We are in final stages of a new and improved budget tool available in both English and Spanish. It is now in a testing stage and should be available on the site in early January, 2009. Please let us know how you and your clients find the new tool.

I have tried using the new, improved website and cannot log in no matter how many times I try. I prefer the old one. I even had to set up a new account and password and my password will not work when trying to log into the Family Budget Tool.
