Budgeting Hardships In The Military

The military lifestyle is one of uncertainty, high stress, and constant change.

I totally get it, I know your struggle, I feel your stress, I know the situation you are in, and I want to help. 

For 18 years as a military spouse I dealt with job loss, struggling to gain new employment, too many moves to list, having to figure out finances to be able to secure a new home, financial stress due to deployments and training exercises, debt, less than stellar money management, and so much more. I was that spouse and mom constantly looking for ways to help our finances and get our budget in control all while battling debt. 

I have been where you are. All hope is not lost! I promise you!

After years of budgeting, struggling with finances, succeeding and then failing only to start again, I tried many budget methods, researched, self-taught, and more to repeatedly dig out of the money hole we built for ourselves, only to do it again due to financial insecurity and mismanagement of our money.

I learned a lot from others, from making my own mistakes, and practicing slowly but surely with a budgeting routine. I also took the time to search and find resources available to the military community while I was working for the military for 10 years. In my job I was a source of information, referral, communication, and support so I took it upon myself to do my best to help the military I worked with and their families with making their time in the military be beneficial to them and to set them up for success to face the everyday hardships of the military life.

Now I am making everything I have learned available to all of the military community and anyone else struggling with their financial situation.

In my years of figuring out budgeting for my own family I realized that I was not finding a product that worked simply. Nor was there a product that helped me learn in steps instead of throwing everything budgeting at me at once.

I figured out an approach to attacking my finances that was simplified and didn't overwhelm me when going to work on my finances each paycheck. Most budget products I used previously either were too basic or contained so many pages that I didn't use or were not ready for. I constantly paid for budget planners that a majority of the pages were wasted or they just didn't have the necessary portions to keep me going each month.

I took it upon myself to find a better way; so, I created a simplified, learning in steps method of budgeting and finances. 

The budgeting tools I have created will help you get organized, budget your paychecks, start working on saving money, paying off debt, and work on your comfort level with budgeting to prepare you for the next learning steps in budgets and finances.

Get your finances in order stop living stressed about paying bills while dealing with the constant uncertainty that comes from being a part of the military community.

I am here by your side, to support you, to cheer you on, to be a shoulder to cry on, or just a friendly person to reach out to!
