Budget Binder for 2022 (with FREE Printables!)

This free printable budget binder and budget planner can help you save more money and spend less! Get ready to crush debt and start saving!

2021 Free Printable Budget Binder

The 2022 Budget Binder is here! I’ve been getting dozens of emails requesting the 2022 version, and today is the day! I share a budget planner each year in hopes that by tracking income and expenses, people can spend less money, save more, pay off those debts and end 2022 in a much better financial position than where they started.

[Did you know that we offer more than 300 pages of free printables on the blog?! See all of our free printable binders, calendar printables, and other organizing printables.]

How to Make a Budget Binder

With the holiday bills about to start piling up, now is the perfect time to start getting our finances in check, amiright?!

What supplies do I need to put together a Budget Binder?

Here’s what I use to compile my Budget Binder:

What should be included in a budget binder?

There are several key pages that I include in my budget binder each year. (If you click on each of the links below, you can jump right to the explanation for that particular page.) Here’s what to include in a budget binder:

  1. Cover Page– Keep track of your binder (and make it pretty so you want to use it often)!
  2. Goal Setting Sheet– Set financial goals for the year so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
  3. Pages to Track Recurring Expenses– These sheets track bills that stay pretty much the same each month like mortgage/rent, car payments, student loan payments, utility bills, etc.
  4. Pages to Track Variable Monthly Expenses– These sheets track expenses that vary some from month to month like grocery shopping, eating out, gas, clothing, etc.
  5. Monthly Check-in Page– This page helps you take a look over the previous month’s finances and gauge what you did well and what you would like to improve for the upcoming month.

A Pretty Cover

Of course it had to have a pretty cover page! 🙂 This year’s cover is cheery and simple, with space to write your name on the provided line.

Goal Setting Sheet

Free Printable Budget Binder with Financial Goals Page

Goal setting is oh-so-important to me, especially when it comes to finances. When Donnie and I take the time to sit down together and write out our financial goals, it puts us on the same page, and we are much more likely to achieve what we set out to do!

Let’s say we’ve set a goal to pay off our student loans in the next year. We’ll write it down on this page, give ourselves a timeframe in which to complete it (by the end of December 2022), and then we’ll list the action steps that we are going to take in order to reach that goal.

Maybe we’ll plan to make a double payment each month. Maybe we can get an extra little side job to make some additional money to put toward the debt. Or maybe we can cut down on our budget in other areas like clothing or eating out to come up with the extra cash. However we decide to do it, it’s not enough to just set the goal. We need to have a plan to get there.

These goals and action steps are in the front of the binder for a reason– they’re there as a constant reminder of what we’re working toward. If we’re looking at them each day or week when we’re tracking expenses in the binder, we renew our commitment and drive to reach them.

Then, for example, if we’re really tempted to go out to eat instead of just grabbing something from home, we think of our goal. Paying off those student loans will feel better than an extra meal out ever could!

Tracking Recurring Expenses

Recurring Expenses Printable for the 2021 Budget Binder

The next thing I wanted to have in our Budget Binder was a list of recurring expenses. This includes anything we pay on a yearly, quarterly, or monthly basis. Some examples might be:

  • Loan payments (like rent or a mortgage, car payment, or student loan)
  • Insurance payments (like homeowner’s insurance, car insurance, or health insurance)
  • Utility bills (like electric, gas, water, and sewage)
  • Subscription services (like Netflix, magazine subscriptions, or meal services)
  • Tuition or lesson fees (like kids’ music lessons, sports teams, or clubs)
  • Gym memberships
  • Regular charitable giving (like to churches or non-profits)
  • Recurring contributions to savings (like a general savings account or a retirement fund)
What if I don’t know what recurring payments I have?

If you don’t already have a list of your recurring payments, look back over your last few months of bank statements (most banks provide them online these days!) and write down each bill that you pay on a recurring basis.

You can also also use your bank statements to fill in the amount of each recurring bill (if it varies slightly each month, I usually write down what it is when the bill is on the higher end) and the day of the month it comes out of the account.

The small boxes on the right half of the page have the initials of each month at the top; when a bill is paid, I can just check the box to keep track and I know I’m good for another month.

Monthly Expenses

Tracking Expenses Pages for the 2021 Budget Binder

After the recurring expenses were taken care of, I needed a way to keep track of any purchases we make throughout the month. We break down our purchases into categories and budget a certain amount of money for each category.

This can be as simple or as detailed as you want, but everything you buy during the month needs to fit into one of your categories. Some of our Budget Binder categories for tracking our expenses include:

  • Groceries
  • Eating out
  • Household expenses
  • Gas
  • Entertainment
  • Clothing
  • Gifts
  • Car maintenance
  • Fun money (You may want to give each member of your household a little bit of guilt-free fun money each month so they don’t get burnt out with being so strict about the budget– everyone needs a little splurge every once in a while!)

I created a tracking sheet (kind of like a checkbook register) and printed one out for each category. At the top I can list the category and amount of money we’ve budgeted for it.

Then I use the chart to record our purchases and keep a running balance of what we’ve spent so that I always know how much we have left in our budget for the month.

How do I know how much to budget for each category?

If you’re new to budgeting or haven’t done it in a while, just leave the budget amount blank for the first month and simply track your expenses. This will give you a good ballpark figure for your budget amounts for month #2.

Note: You will print out a new set of tracking sheets each month.

Monthly Check-In

Monthly Check-In Page for the 2021 Budget Binder

And finally, at the end of each month, I have included a monthly check-in page where we evaluate how things went. We jot down things that went well and things we can improve the following month so that we know where our strengths and weaknesses lie. There is also room to break down some of our bigger goals into specific goals for the month.

Going back to our “paying off our student loans” example, maybe this month we want to be able to put an extra $100 toward our payment. We can commit to that in this space and write down the specific steps we’re going to take to get there in our Budget Binder.

Revisiting our goals each month and seeing how far we’ve come can be really motivating and give us that extra push we need to keep pressing toward our financial goals!

The Next Steps in Taking Control of Our Finances

Tracking our spending with the Budget Binder is a great first step toward taking control of our finances and improving our financial picture! Being able to see where our money is going can help us spend less and save more, which is always a great feeling.

But if you’re ready to take it to the next level and are looking for even more in-depth information on things like…

  • How to get out of debt
  • Creating a custom financial fitness plan
  • How to cut your grocery bill in half (without coupons)
  • The 7 bank accounts every family should have
  • What to do when your paycheck isn’t enough

…and more, there is no one I recommend more highly than my friend Jordan and her Budget Boot Camp system. Jordan and her husband paid off thousands of dollars in debt in less than a year and have helped many others do the same!

Jordan’s unique, proven system works for people and families in every stage of life. It is truly a game changer for anyone looking to transform their financial situation.

    I love this, Abby! I need to go back to writing down all my purchases. That really does make you more aware of what you’re spending and where you need to cut things out. Have a great weekend! XO

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks, friend! I know our bank account is a lot happier when I’m writing things down, lol. Now I just have to stick to it! Have a wonderful weekend, Christy!

    Oooh so pretty Abby! I am so impressed with how organized you are!! My receipts always end up in a pile at the bottom of my purse:) But I am sure that knowing you are going to write everything down means you think twice before you buy!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      I totally understand the pile of receipts in the purse. I was having the same problem, so hopefully this system will help! Have a great day!

  12. It is always surprising when you track your expenses. Good for you. I started with something smaller – the linen closet. When organizing for thenNew year, I have to do the one step at the time method or I get overwhelmed.

  21. This is great – thanks so much for the tips. We have been tackling this as well for about a year now through online systems, but I think you are right – pen and paper is more reliable, and for some reason, the money seems more “real” when you write it down. I appreciate it!
    I linked to a post where we shared a new organizing method we are using to attack the toys in our house (that is first up…clean up, clear out, sell and donate!)

    1. justagirlabby says:

      I agree– there is something about good old pen and paper that makes it feel more real! Love your method for clearing out toys– I need to get on that myself! Have a wonderful week!

  25. Christina B says:

    Love the expense sheets. I’ve been wanting to move to something like this. Quick question: when you’re at Walmart or Target and buying stuff from different categories do pay separately or all together and figure the math at home? This has been the reason I’ve never gone to the expense sheets. Any thoughts you can throw my way I’ll be grateful.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks, Christina! I pay for everything together and then separate it out at home. Sometimes if I’m in a hurry, I just round it out to the closest dollar when I split it up. A few cents really won’t throw my budget off! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

    This is so helpful! I’m about to graduate from college, and I didn’t know where to start as far as planning and organizing my expenses and personal documents. These printables & the printables from your home binder page are so incredibly helpful.

When you subscribe to my newsletter list, you’ll get a PDF that teaches you how to make your own organizing printables. If you don’t see it within an hour of subscribing, check your spam folder. Sometimes they make their way there, unfortunately. If you still don’t see the PDF, let me know, and I’ll email you a copy. Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Yay! So glad I could help! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, Raeanne!

  46. Love this organized way of keeping track! I also prefer pen and paper, I find I am more likely to keep looking at it that way, however I have recently started to scan all of my recipts for big purchases as well as keep the origonal when I noted the recipt started to wear over time.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thanks so much, Heather! Yes, I am totally a pen and paper girl! My hubby, on the other hand, is obsessed with being paperless, so he does a ton of the scanning that you mentioned. I guess opposites attract, right?! 😉 Hope you have a wonderful week!

      ~Abby =)

      1. I suppose that is true. I like to do the organization while my hubby dislikes doing any of that.

  47. Instead of using a binder, I use envelopes to write down my expenses and contain receipts. However, in the future I might have to start using a binder. That’s a great idea! I’m a decently new college graduate (’13) who has been out on her own for about 9 months now. My first month on my own I wrote a budget and have been sticking to it ever since. I find that budgeting my money gives me piece of mind and allows me to live richer than I would if I just spent my money willy-nilly.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Congrats on sticking to your budget! So many people struggle with that, and it’s great that you’re doing it right out of college! Your future self will thank you! 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend, Holly!

    Hi, just like to say that my wife Sylvia thinks these are “Awesome”, She is very methodical and keeps receipts and writes expenses etc in a little note book. Now she has your printables, things are looking for the better on keeping tabs with expenditures. Especially living in Cyprus, you have to retain receipts and watch the money flow. Thank you.

      1. Abby,
        I love your printables. I was curious what fonts you used for your budget binder.

        1. justagirlabby says:

          Thanks so much, Kim! The cursive font is Jenna Sue and the print is Graphite Std Light. Hope this helps!

    Love this! I’ve just signed up cant wait to get my pack and get started

  50. Just wondering, but are all your recurring bills the same amount every month? Mine aren’t, so I’m trying to figure out how you would keep track of that. I would have to change the amount every month. Can you help me??
    Love this idea, though!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Wendy! Some of our bills (like utilities) vary from month to month, so on my budget sheet, I have listed a higher end average of what we expect them to be. Then I’ll often note the actual amount in the little box for each month. I hope this helps!

  52. I LOVE this Abby you are amazing!!! 🙂

    1. I just use a budget sheet as well, but sometimes this type of budget sheet confuses me. My bills (i.e water, power, gas, etc) aren’t always the same AMOUNT every month. I don’t understand how you keep track of that. I have tried to make my own where I have a space every month to write the amount and the due date and if it’s paid. Could you please help me understand??
      Love your ideas, though!!

      1. justagirlabby says:

        Hi, Wendy! For bills that fluctuate a little bit, I just put an estimation (on the high side), so we know around how much to expect, and then I write the actual amount in the tiny check box so we can keep track and know if our estimation is still on par. I hope this helps!

        ~Abby =)

        1. Abby,
          Does these printables come in the A-4 size by chance? I just love them!

  56. Norma Pezza says:

    I love this idea and have already printed everything up. I also kept a “master” copy of each sheet and placed it into a clear sleeve and put it into the back of my binder. This will make it quick and easy to make copies and not have to hunt for them on my computer. Can’t wait to get started.

  60. Chandra Minter says:

    I tried downloading the binder but the link hasn’t come through to my email for me to download it.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      So sorry about that, Chandra! I had my assistant email it to you at mintercn@gmail.com so you should receive it shortly!

    I would love to receive your printables link but neither of my email addresses are receiving the link. Not sure what is going on. Would you be so kind to send me a link, please? It would be greatly appreciated.

  62. I love this. I definitely need to go back to writing down all of my expenses! A habit that I’ve gotten out of.

  63. Hi,
    How do I download or print the budget binder pages?

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Teresa! Did you receive the email with the budget binder printables? You should be able to open it and print with any program that works with PDF’s. If you didn’t receive the email, send us an email at hello {at} justagirlandherblog {dot} com and we’ll get it to you. Thanks!

      Hi, Jackie! I usually release the new one sometime in November, but none of the printables are dated so the 2017 version would work now as well! 🙂 Have a great evening!

      ~Abby =)

  65. Hooray! Thanks for taking the time to get ME organized! Haha

  69. I feel like I’ve been living under a rock. I’ve searched Pinterest for something like this blog and finally I’ve come across exactly what I’ve always wanted, but never knew how to do myself. Your budget binder and organized lists are so beautiful. I appreciate you for sharing these with others without charging a crazy fee. I love this blog and I love how easy the entire site is to navigate. Thank you so much. I am beyond thankful for your family.

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Thank you so much for your sweet words, Lola!! They really mean a lot! I’m so glad that the printables will be helpful. Have a wonderful day!

  70. Dear Abby,

    I am trying to finally get my finances back on track and in a much better place. It does take time and patience for sure. I was just thinking I need a budge sheet and was so happy in finding your blog it’s the budget planner is so well put together and love the colors seem relaxing when we’re all so stressed from bills we have each month.

    I will share this with my daughter who loves this stuff and being very organized like you & I see will be getting married in the next few years, saving for a new home so this should help her out a lot. So, I wanted to say Thank you for all your time in reaching out and making our life easier with this great Budget Planner you created.

    Wishing you all a wonderful New Year of great financial income and less debt for 2018!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Aw, thank you so much, Linda! So glad it will be helpful for you guys! Have a wonderful holiday! <3

  71. I love your budget binder printables!! My favorite design so far has been the 2016 design. And because they are undated I have used them year after year! One thing I also do in my budget binder is print your calendar sheets, then I write in paychecks and the bills. I separate them out between bills that come out automatically and ones paid by check in the mail. This helps me see when our larger bills come out in comparison to our paydays, and helps me budget how much to set aside each paycheck for those larger expenses. I also have a folder in my binder, one side I have the bills I have paid, the other side has the bills that need to be paid. This way I can compare charges from month to month and verify that they received my last payment. Thank you so much for all your hard work!! I love all of your printables!!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      So glad the Budget Binder has been helpful for you, Brandy! Love to hear that! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  72. Is there a way to get an older version of the Recurring Monthly Expenses worksheet. The spacing on the older versions worked much better for us, and I’m down to my last copy and can’t seem to find the download on my computer anywhere.

    Thank you!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Esther! There have been a few older versions. I would be happy to send it to you if I can figure out which one you’re looking for. Could you possibly email me a screenshot of the one you’d like at hello@justagirlandherblog.com? Then I can get you what you need! Thanks!

      ~Abby =)

  73. Sindy Peña says:

    This looks great! I’ve always been one to write down where I make purchases and how much was spent but it’s never been this organized. I literally just hand write purchases down in a notebook. It’s actually worked very well for me but this looks like a big step up from what I’m doing. I may just have to reconsider my technique:) Thanks for sharing!

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Yay! So glad it will be helpful for you!

  74. Tyson Biegler says:

    Am I missing something here? The title says free printable but then I click and find out its $10. Click bait???

    1. justagirlabby says:

      Hi, Tyson! The budget binder on the site is free. If you click one of the long pink buttons that says “Grab your free 2019 Budget Binder printables right here! Let’s get saving!” and enter your info, we send the binder straight to your inbox and there is no cost. We do offer a version of the binder with additional designs and extra pages in our shop, and that one is paid, but the basic version we’re showing in this post is totally free. So sorry for the confusion! Have a great day!

      ~Abby =)

  75. Thank you so much for this FREE budget resource! Perfect timing!

    1. Abby Lawson says:

      So glad it will be helpful for you, Dana!

  76. I love that the financial goals are included right at the beginning and then revisited each month. That vision is so important. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Abby Lawson says:

      Yay! So glad you’re enjoying it, Marielle! <3

      ~Abby =)

  77. Linda Stecy says:

    A fun read and quite helpful too. I’m gonna print and stick it in my room. Thanks Abby!

    1. Abby Lawson says:

      Yay! So glad it’ll be helpful for you, Linda! <3

      ~Abby =)

  78. This looks great! I’ll say I’ve found it nice to have a space to write confirmation #s for bills I call in to pay. And to have a small section for notes if there’s an issue. That way I can always refer back to it the next month to verify everything has been taken care of.

    1. Abby Lawson says:

      So glad it will be helpful for you, Allie! Have a great week!

      ~Abby =)

  80. Thank you so much. I was looking mostly for budget printables when I found your blog. I have some I made myself in Excel which have everything I want except being pretty. I feel like the more colorful and fun I can make my binder the more likely I will write in it often. I was really good last year but this year mid-year I stopped 🙁 Yours is really similar to the basic ones I made for myself but nicer-looking than mine. I do wish the tracking expenses sheet by category in particular was somehow editable. I like to have more room in the notes for a longer description of what I purchased and I like to have a section at the top that has a box for how I calculated the category budget (e.g. car category – 55/oil change, 25/mo tires due every 3 years, air fresheners 3/bimonthly, etc). I try to think of every object that might cost money so that I can plan accordingly even if it only costs like $3. Also, I prefer a landscape version as it means more room to write per purchase. But other than that – it is just a much nicer version of what I have. Thank you!

      Glad it will be helpful for you, Ally! Have a great week!

  82. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for and would love to utilize this resource, however, the link isn’t working. I get zero error codes or even a “loading” symbol when I click it. Help!! 🙁

    1. Abby Lawson says:

      Hi, Casey! So sorry it’s giving you trouble! If you have a popup blocker activated in your browser, you will need to disable that in order for the budget binder form to work for you. I’m guessing that’s probably why it’s happening. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  83. Hi! When I click the button, it goes back to this blog post – there’s no downloaded. Can you please help? I’d like to link out to this.
