Two weeks ago, I introduced my home maintenance binder. Last week, I gave you the download for the calendaring/to do list section. This week, I am giving you all the stuff you need for a finance section. 

This section is the one that I use the calculator and the Ziploc envelope for. It’s nice to have the calculator and I use the envelope for receipts usually. 

This section takes the most instructions to get started. This download includes the following sheets:

  • budget worksheet
  • one time bills list
  • recurring bills list
  • loan pay-off schedule

The budget worksheet is a basic budget sheet with income/outgoing columns. It’s a monthly sheet. I find that keeping a budget is the most important thing I can do to make sure I don’t spend too much money. 


The one time bills list is a sheet made for random bills that come in (dentists, doctors, etc) that you will pay once and be done with. I like to pay my bills all at once, so when I get them in the mail, I write it down and then when I sit down to pay them all, I know what I need to pay. 


The recurring bills list is for bills that come in each month (utilities, cell phone, etc). I often go paperless on these bills so I don’t get tons of mail that I just throw away, but nothing is worse than the reminder email going into my junk box. I write down the date each bill is due and if/when I’ve paid it so that I can keep track of all that.

The loan pay off schedule is to help me see how much debt I actually have at a certain time and when it’s going to be paid off. I have a section for the balance at the beginning of the month and the payment that I am planning on making that month. Sometimes I do this out for a few months so I can see how long I’m looking at paying on a certain debt. 


That’s it for the finance section. Next week I”m going to share my grocery sheet list and talk about meal planning.

This printable is free. All I ask is that you

    Those are nicely organized sheets. When I was a single mother I would never had made it without adhering to a budget. It's a lesson most of us learn at some point, whether we want to budget or not, lol. What I learned then still applies today, although I use google calendar to keep my on track.
