What does a personal finance blogger do on her downtime? Write up some budgets, of course!

This week I was helping a friend update her budget as her income and expenses have changed drastically over the last year.

Believe it or not, I enjoy setting a budget up – figuring ways not only to get bills paid but also discovering ways to use the money to reach goals.

Using Google Drive, I was able to create and share the spreadsheets easily.

After presenting the new budgets I also mentioned using tools like Mint to help them stay on track with the new plans.

Hopefully I'll get an update in a couple of months.

    • Yep it is a good feeling to help:) I heard back from one friend who had an emergency and was worried that the budget was ruined. I was happy to show them that there was an emergency buffer included in the spreadsheet.
