Good money management is a habit. It is an everyday task, especially if you need to stick to a plan to make ends meet. The Money Management Calendar can help you see where your money is going day by day. The purpose of this calendar is to help you plan and control your family’s expenses for the year.

It can be used as an overall guide for the entire year or for short-term planning. There are planning charts for income and expenses with sample charts to help explain how to use them. Contact the Blount County Extension Office to get yours today.
