MY FAVORITE BUDGETING APP!
HI DARLINGS! Today we are going to gain control of our money…especially since so many of you are budgeting to attend my annual event in July 😉 This post is going to make not just budgeting for July amazingly easy but budgeting for your life.
When I left home as a teen I had no idea how to manage money. I didn’t know what credit was, how important it was, or how to budget myself. I unfortunately learned the hard way in my late 20’s when I found myself as a single mom trying to feed three kids and make ends meet. After feeling overwhelmed I decided I needed to learn how to make my money work for me and I haven’t looked back since. I have learned how to be financially responsible and how to manage not just our family budget but my small business budget too!
I made it a priority to teach my kids about MONEY! I wish I had YNAB when I was learning but I am so glad that I have it now to teach my 18 year-old (who just moved out on her own…omg!) how to stay in control. I immediately downloaded the app on her phone and got busy teaching her what to do and how to do it.
Every time I had spent hours working up a budget the minute something unexpected happened I had to start all over! YNAB is flexible so when life changes your YNAB budget changes too.
Rule #1 Give every dollar a job
Rule #2 Embrace your true expenses
Rule #3 Roll with the punches
Rule #4 Age your money
YNAB now, it will help you live differently. Let me know what you think and what you struggle with the most when it comes to your finances!
