2023 B Chic Budget Planner
Get intentional with your money, your life, your experiences…
It can feel like the odds are stacked against you. Rising food prices, rising gas prices, rising housing. How is anyone able to afford living in the US these days making less than $100k—heck even $50k?!
There’s a way! Although we’re inundated with capitalist ideals everyday, you can be intentional with your money in a way that brings freedom, abundance, and hope to your financial situation.
Have you felt hopeless about…
- Being able to afford a financial emergency
- Giving yourself and/or your kids experiences to see the world and relax/have fun every now and then
- Working in time and money for self care
- Getting out of the cycle of paycheck to paycheck living
The B Chic Budget Planner is the fastest way to get clear about your money goals and priorities in order to make room for more savings, experiences, and future wealth. You’ve probably been bogged down with one of these limiting thoughts.
“I’m too focused on keeping up with bills, I can’t afford a vacation or self care.”
There is a way to work in self care and intentional savings to afford trips and once in a lifetime experiences. A simplified budget system that works with your current spending habits, is the first step to success.
“I’m just not good with money. That’s why I can never save or stick to saving.”
You may be using the wrong tools or simply not working WITH your personality type to make saving work for you. Whether that means implementing automation, restricting your access, utilizing the snowball effect, or leveraging high yield accounts—there IS a way to make savings work for you in the long term.
“I don’t make enough to afford doing something special for myself or my family.”
It all comes back to perspective. You may not be able to afford a multi-state jump to Disney World this year, but you can save up for a 2 hour or less drive to an amusement park or spa overnight stay.
There is a way you can budget your family into prosperity and financial freedom but it starts with intention setting through budgeting and reflection.
Yes, you can save on a tight budget. Through patience and a little automation, you can get the habit of saving on your side. It all starts with a consistent plan.
It doesn’t have to be like this…
You get paid, most of your money goes towards past due and current bills.
Haphazardly spending on other necessities without tracking the receipt totals,
Which then leads to wasting money on last minute needs, and falling behind on your bills and money goals.
Imagine life like this…
With a solid money routine, even small savings make a big difference to your growing savings towards emergencies, family trips, and future bill payments.
Prioritize experiences over the amount invested to make it happen. This budget can help you get there!
