Getting Financially Organized

Getting financially organized might be easier than you thought. Our finances run so much of our lives. It only makes sense if we take the time to get our finances straightened out. Money can either be a good part of your life or a bad part of your life. You may as well learn how to manage your money and finances now, so you have peace later.  Here is how you can get financially organized.

Track Your Expenses 

One way to keep your finances organized is to track your finances. When you spend money, keep track of it. If you’re only looking at the balance in your bank account, to see how much you can spend, this isn’t going to be helpful. Track your expenses either using an app or by writing down what you spend. 

Use Cash Only 

Another way you can can organize your finances is by using cash. I like to use cash because when the money runs out, it runs out. When you use a debit card or credit card, it can seem like something that’s endless and you’ll never stop spending. Cash is a great way to hold yourself accountable with finances. Keep this in mind as you look for ways to organize your finances. 

Create a Budget

Another way to get yourself organized financially is by creating a budget. Budgets are actually easier to use than you ever thought possible. You can budget using a pencil or paper or you can use an online budgeting app. The internet has made everything easier in that way. The great thing about a budget is that you can come back to it anytime you need to and refocus everything. 

Know Where Your Money is Going

When you get that paycheck every week or bi-weekly, do you know where it is going? It’s vital that you know what is coming out of your bank account. Spend time checking to see if you have any expensive subscriptions coming out. Getting rid of all these minor expenses will really help you save money in the long run. Plus, you don’t want to spend money that you don’t have to. 

Stop Overspending

Another way you can stay organized financially is to stop overspending. You don’t want to spend more money than you have to. You don’t want to use credit cards to pay for things you can’t afford. Overspending is a real issue and you may be doing it daily. When you overspend, you’re not able to keep up on your finances and everything just feels a bit chaotic. So, it’s time to get financially organized and stop overspending. 

How do you keep your finances organized? I’d love to hear all about it!

      HomeZada has been a huge help to get me pointed in the right direction.

  • Jenn @comebackmomma

    We haven’t done a home inventory in ages. We really need to do this again. The home maintenance schedule is a great tool too.

  • Jenna Wood

    I really like the home inventory, for collectibles or just insurance purposes. I’ve even had something break and not been able to identify where I bought it or what brand it is, and I think that tool could help.

  • Liz @ Yes/No Films

    Sounds like a cool app!

  • Dede

    When my daughter was born, I didn’t open the mail for weeks. We came so close to having the electricity cut off simply because I forgot to pay the bill! HomeZada is such a great way to organize everything from inventories to maintenance. I love it!

    i love that they have a home mait schedule and inventory. This has been on my to do list for longer than I want to admit.

  • Nicole Brady

    I like the Home Inventory aspect. While we photograph everything we do, archives of what we own aren’t as common. In case of emergency, it’s nice to have that available for insurance!

  • Michele Brosius

    I am ashamed to say, that after 16 years in our home, we have never done an inventory. I really need to make that a priority today!

  • Jennifer Soltys

      That’s the key for me is keeping up with the expense report. I start off good but then tend to slide and have to start all over.

  • Dawn Lopez

    Anything that works to help you stay organized is a wonderful tool in my opinion! Especially if you’re a homeowner who needs to stay on top of your bills and save for the unexpected expenses that come with owning a home.

  • Ooh, what a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance! I like that it’s mobile, that’s necessary in my world!

  • This would be a lifesaver to some, keeping track is so crucial!

  • Mama to 5 BLessings

    I recently heard about this program. It sounds wonderful and great to be organized wtih finances!

  • I like that they thought of everything!!! I do forget a lot of maintenance things because I just don’t put them on the calendar, like cleaning the gutter and changing air filters. . . what a great program!

  • Janice

    Great idea! We could all use this!

    I love that you can protect your photos online, that is so very important!

  • Emily @ Baby Dickey

    I had never heard of this before, but I’m totally a list maker or I’d lose my mind. I like a lot of the features, but I think the best is the maintenance schedule – those are the things I’m always forgetting!

  • Scarlet

    HomeZada provides free mobile applications

  • It definitely sounds like it’s worth upgrading to the paid subscription to have all that info in one place!!

  • Liz Mays

    I like the idea of keeping repairs and whatnot all organized this way. An inventory would be really nice too.

    I like that you can safely store photos of your property and possessions online.
