Have a mini planner and would like to add pages for your household finances and budget? Well, I’ve got what you need and its free. I’ve created pages so you can keep your household finances and budget in check. These pages fit easily in any mini planner/binder and are very simple to use.
For years now I have used a regular sized (8.5″ x 11″) binder for my finances. There was nothing wrong with it except that it was separate from my mini planner. So, I reconfigured my finance pages to fit mini binders…And I love it. I no longer have to refer to a separate binder when it comes to things like scheduling bills or balancing my accounts. It is all in my mini planner.

Pages You Will Get
One of the pages you will receive is a monthly budget page. Below is an example of how I use my budget pages. And no, those are not my bills (I wish).
As you can see I list out all my bills then highlight them as I pay them off. Below this I list other budget categories whose amount fluctuates during the month. However, the goal is to not go over the amount I’ve set for the month.
Then I enter what my ‘imaginary’ pay for the month, subtract my total budget amount. This gives me my ’emergency’ amount that I set aside in case something happens like an unexpected car repair. If I don’t use this ’emergency’ amount, then I can transfer that to savings or pay off a debt.
Upcoming Bills Page
I use this sheet to keep track of my bills’ due dates so that I can easily enter those in my planner later.
I try to keep these bills in date order and is why I skip a line between bills. This allows me to stick in an unexpected bill onto the page or leave room if I forget to enter a bill. Once I pay the bill, I check it off, then add it to the end of my list for next month if it is a monthly reoccurring bill.
The last column just lets me know the account I will be using to pay the bill. C is for checking and D is for my discover card. You may use other accounts such as your savings (S), American Express (A), or Visa (V). It reminds me to find that particular account page and enter in the bill.Let others know about our free and easy to use household finance and budget pages for mini planners by clicking here.Click To Tweet
I use my account pages to keep track of every account I have. This includes bank accounts, credit card accounts, my PayPal account, mortgage, and other investment accounts. When I receive my statements from my bank or credit card company, I quickly check my balances to make sure they match.
If you have never balanced your accounts before, now is the time. It is how I detected fraud on my account a few years ago and was able to stop it in time. On the 1st of every month, I check the balances of all my accounts and update them if needed. This lets me see my savings progress and motivates me to keep up the good work.
Like a check book register, I enter the date and transaction. You can subtotal every line but I don’t. I usually subtotal every five lines. The above example is a checking account so each transaction is usually subtracted. If this was a credit card account, then I would add the transactions.
When I receive my monthly statements for any account, I use the check column to confirm each transaction and to help me balance the account total.
These account pages can be used for all your accounts. I keep my checking, savings, Paypal, retirement, and investment accounts on these pages. Again, they help me keep track of every transaction so that I can easily detect any errors.
