When you have certain things going on in your life how do you get through them? I have a busy schedule already and then when something abnormal happens it really throws me off. I have a hard time with wanting to have everything planned out and even if those planned this are a little off as long as it is on the general time line I do fine. However when something out of the ordinary pops its head in I go nuts.
My biggest thing is I always make a budget. I sit down and write out when I get paid vs what bills are due and which need to be paid out of said pay day. With life throwing me a curve ball I have really screwed this up and got behind. Now I am struggling to get caught back up and get things paid in their place. It does not help that I just recently moved and have to readjust due dates for things like electric and water.
I used to use an excel worksheet on the computer and it worked great for years. Now I find it harder to get on my computer unless it is to do work, school, or log a kid on. So I am trying to get back to the old paper and pen method and calendars.
What do you use to do your budget?
