Create a family budget and enjoy financial peace of mind
Every family has to plan for the future -- creating a budget for your household is the first step toward taking control of your finances. Use Nolo's Montly Budget form to help you determine what your expenses are, project for future expenses, and keep track of where your family's income goes each month.
Plus, avoid legal problems and financial entanglements by making sure you're not missing out on annual, semi-annual, or quarterly payments, and keeping track of your investment income and expenses. This form includes instructions for filling it out, including:
using actual expenses to project monthly expenses
accounting for annual, semi-annual, and quarterly expenses
figuring out the difference between your projected needs and your actual income
tracking the accuracy of your personal budget throughout the months after you fill it out
