Fix Your Finances ASAP with My (Free) Simple Monthly Budget Template

monthly budget template

Keeping my finances organized with a monthly budget template is high on my list of priorities.

After all…

A little overspending can turn into a BIG problem. Staying on top of your spending is especially important when you’re a college student with a tight budget.

That’s why I like to use a simple budget template to keep track of all my expenses. 

For me:

It’s always sooo much easier to keep track of my bills, debt and savings goals when I write it down. And the best part is, I only need to do it once a month.

If you’re a visual learner like me, then you’ll love my printable Monthly Budget Template!

My Printable Monthly Budget Template

This Monthly Budget Template includes areas to keep track of my:

  • income
  • savings
  • savings goals
  • bills
  • & debt

I designed it myself! It comes in three shades of purple; from a light lavender to a nice, deep royal purple.

This budget template makes it simple to keep track of when bills are due and if they have been paid yet.

What I do:

I just put a check mark, an X or color in the square to indicate that a bill has been taken care of.

Saving up for a big purchase can be difficult! 

I’m SUPER impatient, but writing down what I want under “Goals” on this simple budget template helps me keep the big picture in mind.

I mean I’ll still have trouble waiting (’cause that’s just who I am), but it DOES help remind me to not nickel and dime myself on small purchases that I don’t really need throughout the month.

I like to keep my filled out budget worksheet on my desk. But it would also be a good idea to keep in on my fridge or somewhere else where it would be seen often.

Again:

The more reminders I have, the better I’ll do at adhering to my budget! Because those unwise spending temptations are always around the corner for me.

Speaking of spending decisions…

My monthly budget template includes a spot to keep track of debt. It can be pretty motivating to watch that number shrink every month until it has been completely paid off!

  1. Hello, I think these forms are so cute! I subscribed on 2 of my emails now waiting for the password but I have yet to receive it. It’s been about a week now & I’ve checked my SPAM mail as well. Is there anyway you could help me?

    1. Hey Carolina, just saw your comment!

      Sorry to hear that our emails are giving you trouble. I took a peak on our end, and it looks like you received the email with the password today and opened it.

      But if you need anything else, I would be happy to help. (:
