This free printable monthly budget planner is a simple way to set up your budget and get a look at the month ahead.
Filling it out is pretty simple – add your expected income, jot down your expenses, date due, whether it’s been paid yet (you can fill this in throughout the month) and any helpful notes you may need.
When creating your monthly budget, it’s important to account for regular expenses as well as the little things that you tend to spend money on but may not be budgeting for (like movie rentals, little purchases at the gas station, etc.).
And if it’s something that you repeatedly spend money on, add it to your budget ahead of time so you can limit surprise spending throughout the month.
It doesn’t have to be too specific… adding a misc. category will work, just make sure that the amount budgeted is realistic and aligns with your actual spending patterns.
The totals section at the bottom gives you a clear look at how much money you’ll have left over after your expenses. If you do zero based budgeting, you can also use this section to make sure that every dollar is accounted for.
