Managing your family budget
If you’re the mom in your family, you’re probably the one in charge of everyday money matters — paying the gas bill and buying groceries. That’s according to a recent poll that Environics Research conducted for TD Bank Group.
But with all of the other items on your never-ending to-do list, even the most organized among us could use some help keeping on top of the family budget. Who among us hasn’t uttered a panicked: “Is the gas bill due this month?” Or my personal favourite: “Have you seen my credit card statement? I thought I put it on the kitchen counter, and it’s due tomorrow!”
Here are some great tools for tracking your household income and expenses — in short, stuff that’ll help you stay on budget. Many are online, and some are even free!
