11 in '11: Goal Six

Goal Six:
Keep a Household Budget

My bloggy friend Amanda at Buford Betty is a die-hard Dave Ramsey fan and I may just have to get on board. She actually is hosting a great giveaway right now for Dave's Cash Flow Planning DVD.

As a CPA, I've always thought I had a good handle on our finances. And honestly, I do. We do a great job of not spending what we don't have, but I think we really need to concentrate more on sticking to a budget. I know it will be scary to see where our money goes, but I'm going to bit the bullet and do it this month.

Amanda has a post where she offers up copies of her budget templates (in excel- and you know how I LOVE excel!) so I'm off to request my copies and get started!

How are you at budgeting?
