This has been by far my most requested post ever….how I set up our budget binder. So, I thought that I’d show you exactly how I’m setting up our 2017 Budget Binder, using my 2017 Budget Planner. (Here’s the link to the 2018 version).
I’ll go ahead and apologize, as the video quality is terrible (I swear, one day I’ll make great videos!), but it’ll show you exactly how I set up our Budget Binder, where I put all my printables, where I put our monthly bill statements, and where I track our savings/debt payments/bill payments/holiday planning and budgets.
Hopefully this will help you if you’re still trying to figure out how to set up your budget binders. I reused some old file folders for the first three dividers – “Tracking”, “Holiday Planning”, and “Budget Meetings” and then used Avery’s Monthly Tabs for the individual monthly sections.
My binder is this one from Staples – I love it. I mean, it’s held up for 4 years and through 3 kids and two dogs so it’s a winner in my book. 🙂
