Though a monthly budget is generally the most reasonable timeframe for which to set up an initial personal or household budget, there are many sources of income and expenses that do not perfectly follow a monthly schedule.For instance, you may receive a paycheck every week or two weeks, not once a month. In that case, you will want to calculate how that adds up over one month's time and write that in the appropriate row and column. You may also have certain expected or even recurring expenses that occur more or less often than monthly.
But try this anyway. Creating a budget and then following it can help you spot areas where you're spending more than you realize. Here you will find tips on how to create a budget and track expenses along with other money management techniques.
