Budgeting Spreadsheet with a Downloadable Form!

Posted by Hallee on Jan 7, 2014 in Budgeting, Life, Stewardship

For the last three years, I have written about the budgeting spreadsheet that I created in Excel to manage my household expenses. This is always an INCREDIBLY popular post, and many people asked for a copy of the spreadsheet to be emailed to them.

My husband finally got a few minutes to make this a clickable download; so try that first.

Pondering Pennies Past & Present

A friend’s blog post from this week inspired me to write this today. She blogged about taking over their family’s finances and looking forward to the coming year and seeing what she can do about emergency funds and vacation funds and such.

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Posted by Hallee on Nov 20, 2009 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Vanilla extract is expensive. Every month the prices just keep going up. I reckoned that it’s nothing more than vanilla beans and alcohol. Did some research and turned out I was right.

Consignment finds & the smartest clothing invention ever

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2009 in Budgeting, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Stewardship

Consignment stores are such a godsend. Because we’ve never really had to buy clothes for the boys, they’ve never been anywhere on my radar. But when I told Gregg that I needed to get Scott new pants, he’s the one who suggested that I check out the consignment store first.

Making over our money, totally

Gregg and I recently made a commitment as a couple and as a family to get out of debt. We have a number of motivating factors for this, but our primary motivation is because the less money we’re paying out to interest payments or what have you, the more we have to help further God’s kingdom.
