Posted a new article from an outside author on home budget tips with the following recommendations:

Keep your financial records organized and your filing up to date
Avoid spending cash, unless you are good at writing down cash expenses in a journal
Give your children a set allowance for things like movies, CDs, snacks and toys instead of just giving them money on as needed basis
Have a system in place for handling the mail
Avoid going to stores where you have had problems overspending in the past
Have written, long term savings goals
Have a set time each week to review and pay the bills

The one that I think a lot of people pass over which is so important is having long term goals written down and placed somewhere you can see them on a daily basis. As the saying goes, it's hard to get where you want to go if you don't know where that is Wink
