One of my favorite blogs, Better Parenting, just posted a new article titled "5 Family Budgeting Tips That Work". I've just been planning a new personal and family budget and it's not easy stuff. I found a great site, Mint, that has been helping enormously, but I also learned a lot from this post.
The two things listed in the article that really hit me were Keep A Spending Diary and Enjoy the Free Things in Life. It's not that I hadn't thought about those things, but when I read about them they really made a lot of sense.
Head on over to Better Parenting to read the article. You'll be glad you did.
