Couple Money Podcast

If 2020 has proved anything, it’s that we need to have a budget that actually works. Today we’ll dive in to see how you two can build a budget that fits you and your goals!

Build a Better Budget Together

I think a lot of people can appreciate why budgets matter because now more than ever, we’re seeing like our finances are reflecting our lives.

For those of us who’ve been hit hard by the pandemic, either directly or indirectly, the budget has had to be completely redone.

But even if things are relatively stable job-wise, we’re still reflecting on how we could do better. 

A budget is not going to fix all of our problems, but a good budget – the one we actually enjoy and can stick with – that can be a huge help and stress relief. 

But how do you make a budget that fits your family’s circumstances and goals? How do you make one that still allows some room for fun? 

While I enjoy helping couples figure out their budget, I brought in someone who understands and enjoys budgeting.
