It’s hard as a woman to learn the best ways to budget your money.

With a love for shopping, lack of time, stress, or low pay, budgeting can be hard, especially if you’re not aware of the best ways to budget your money.

To make matters worse, prices go up, pay goes down, and we’re charged fees for everything under the sun.

Yet, there truly are some great ways to budget your money better that I’d like to share with you.

If you’re not already using these, don’t wait any longer.

Start today and you’ll see rewards through your increasing bank account balance in no time.

1. Make a List of Your Bills and Pay

One of the most important ways to budget your money is to make a list of all your bills and then how much you make each week or bi-weekly.

Include all other sources of income your currently have as well.

You need to know how much you have going out and coming in each week, instead of just paying bills when they come due with what you have left in the bank.

That’s no way to live, and I know this firsthand from past mistakes.

By making a list, you can manage your money better, and it puts everything into reality for what you have to spend elsewhere.

2. Space Things out

One thing I typically avoid doing is to try to pay all my bills with one paycheck.

While this might work for some people, for me it creates issues.

First, for that week of pay (or first two weeks if you’re paid bi-weekly), you’re skimping yourself on money you could need for emergencies, food, or social outings that you might want to do once or twice a week.

I find it helps to space my bigger bills out between paychecks for this reason.

I also find it helps me from looking forward to those “free checks,” which I’d most likely use to binge shop.2

If I know I have bills coming out of all my paychecks, it gives me more discipline and more money to budget with each week.
