Hi Gail
I understand what you what me to do, but how do I get to the point of putting the money in the bank to start the process. Every week there is no money or a payment comes off and it doe not show me the real picture. I understand that I have to put money in every week but am afraid that I will fall short when the payments are due.

Hi Gail...have been watching your show for years and absolutely love your no nonsense way of handling money. It really isn't rocket science, is it? :) I have tracked my spending habits for years and find it to be one of the most useful tools in the money toolbox. It does my heart good to know that at the touch of a keystroke (much easier with a computer program but managed quite nicely for years without it) I know how much I have spent on various expenses over the years. It really curbs the impulse shopping when you track every expenditure. Keep up the great work!

Hi Gail

On your budget sheet for "Gross Income" is that what I make before deductions? If so how does the budget sheet calculate?

Example Gross Income 80,000 but take home is approximately $1900.00 Bi-weekly

A little confused :!thinking:

Hi Gail,

I am a mom of three kids, one with severe multiple food allergies which has being a challenge managing and educating others on how to keep her safe. She is anaphylaxis to dairy, egg, peanut, tree nuts, as well allergic to cats and dogs. Her last severe reaction in her home daycare solidify my decision to stay home and take care of her; along with the multiple doctors appointments I have manage every month.
My husband and I would like to combine all our investments, the problem is that all the financial advisers we had sat down had been less than helpful. The last guy we sat he practically told us that he is making peanuts with us and that if we want him to work for us, we have to move all our investments with him. I felt apprehensive since he was derogatory to me, and in no way I am committing with a financial adviser whom is not willing to share the financial decisions with me. He practically told me, "give me your money and let me do the decisions since that's my job and you don't have the knowledge I have". I am wondering if you know any honest and respectful financial adviser whom will be willing to work with us within our area.
Thanks,
Carmen

Hi Gail,
I can't begin to tell you the difference you have made in my life and my marriage.... You changed them both. I will be eternally grateful. I started the jars over a year ago after realizing that you were the only one that could help me understand. You see I am a visual learner and to actually understand where I was spending and how much was always a hardship for me. My husband just didn't get that I just didn't get it. After watching several episodes I mentioned to him that I wanted to try things your way. He just looked at me and said.... "really". He had never really seen me want to learn about money. I would always stick my hand in the sand when he tried to talk to me about things because I felt stupid because I just didn't get it. He did not make me feel that way I felt that way. He helped me do the paper work and set up my jars and the rest is history. I live and love by my jars. If it isn"t in our jars I just don't do it Gail. I just wanted to say thanks from the bottom of my heart and tell you that you are and always will be a constant positive in my life. I am 56 and finally know I can do this... take care of me and whatever life may throw my way. Thanks bunches :D

Gail, you changed our life. 14 years ago we adopted your budget process and jars (but we used envelopes). Our finances became so boring and streamlined that we rarely ever discuss. We continue to use essentially the same system, and operate on a cash bi weekly budget for the 'life costs' although we skip a lot of steps unless something substantial changes. Thank you so much for being you!
