"My Sister's Budget is awesome! Before this budget, we lived paycheck to paycheck. Balancing our checkbook and paying bills was always a nightmare and caused us so much stress!" said Jim, a software engineer.
"Incredible--we haven't had credit card debt for 5 years! When Christmas arrives, we have money set aside; when the car insurance comes due every 6 months, we write a check; when summer is here, we have money ready for a carefree (and debt free) week of fun at the beach. You've got to try this!" said Patti, a professional fundraiser and event planner.
In 1988 I was living in Oregon with my husband and two small children. We were living paycheck to paycheck and never seemed to have extra money. Even when we had a little money set aside, something always came up (insurance premiums, car repairs) to eat up our savings.
I developed a budgeting system that helped us save automatically and incorporated a kind of mini-savings approach. Within a couple of months I knew I was on to something. My categories were growing and I felt calm about our finances. My siblings started referring to it as "my sister's budget."
We now offer My Sister's Budget in its original notebook form, and as a desktop software. Available soon for download.
