Budget Binder Printable: How To Organize Your Finances

Budgeting, in my humble opinion, is the anchor behind any successful financial plan. If you want to get your money in order, save more, owe less or pay cash for something big, start with by creating a budget.

A budget helps you with your finances because it helps you to know where your money goes each month. It’s very easy to just spend and then be left wondering why you don’t have any money left to save or get ahead. Budgeting helps you avoid that problem.

Let’s start with a list of supplies you may want to use to help you better organize your budget and your printables:

- Binder: D-ring binders tend to work better. A good binder will help you keep your printables organized.

- Divider Tabs: Divider tabs are great for keeping different areas of your finance binder separate, such as debt, bill paying, or savings.

- Binder Pockets: Instead of filing my bills in several different files in my filing cabinet, I just use these pockets. At the end of the year, I empty the pockets out and place all the statements and bills in a separate file. Binder pockets are also great to store your bills that are awaiting payment.

- Zipper Pouch: Zipper pouches work great to store your bill paying supplies like envelopes, stamps, and your checkbook.

- Matching 2019 Monthly Calendar

Budget Binder Printable: How To Organize Your Finances

This first printable helps you keep track of all of your bills. It’s a great reference for your binder. It records the date your bills are due, the name of the bill, the amount due, whether the bill is set up on autopay and more.

This printable form will help ensure you know what is due, when it’s due and whether or not you need to make a manual payment. Use this form to help create your budget and to ensure you don’t make any of your payments late.

It can be helpful to list all your bills in due date order. Then you always have a quick reference to peek at and see what bills are coming up next.

Don’t forget to include quarterly, semi-annual, and annual bills.

I like to use the comments section to note if a bill is a fixed or variable amount. Also, if you have a bill that is quarterly , you can use this area to make note what months have payments due.

For bills that vary, you can put an estimate or average amount. Then you can put that average dollar amount in a separate bank account or cash envelope to ensure you’ve got the money to pay when the actual bill comes due.

Bill Payment Checklist Printable

The Bill Payment Checklist is my favorite printable of all! It lists all of your bills and is a great way to remember what needs to be paid. It will provide you a snapshot of what bills you have upcoming and a way to track your payments.

This printable worksheet can help you even if you are great about paying the bills when they come in. For example, what happens if you don’t get a bill? It gets lost in the mail or whatever. Using a Bill Payment Checklist will remind of you of all your bills – even if the bill gets lost.

Don’t forget to include bills that are set up to pay automatically.

It’s helpful to list bills in due date order on your bill pay tracker so you can see what’s due next.

You can include bills that are quarterly or less too. Just put an X through or other mark on the months where no payment is required.

I like to include everything on here, even if there isn’t always a monthly bill. For example, I use a Kohl’s card strictly to take advantage of discounts and pay in full when the bill comes. Even though most months do not have a bill, I include it on my checklist so I don’t miss paying if I use the card in a given month.

Our free printable checkbook register is created to look just like the ones that come with your checkbook -only prettier! I’ve included a checkbook register form simply because it can be easier for having all of your financial information in one place.

This way you don’t have to go back and forth from your Budget Binder to your checkbook to pay the bills.
