Create a Simple Budget with a Piece of Paper and a Smartphone

While I am a huge fan of budgeting apps like the EveryDollar budget, I’m also a person who comprehends things so much better when I write them down. In fact, my first simple budget was nothing more than a piece of paper and a smartphone. Often times I still need to use this message just to help my brain really pay attention to where my money is going every month. It’s why I created an easy to use Budget Bundle. I needed something that was specific to my budgeting needs that was easy to follow and I knew others probably felt the same. Check out the budget bundle. So, if you don’t like worksheets, how do you start a budget with a piece of paper and a smartphone? I promise it’s a lot easier than you think.
