"If I stay on budget, will my bank balance fluctuate either up or down?" "Does my projected budget TRULY reflect by lifestyle?" These are important questions; and the answers will guide you in choosing the best home budget for you and your family. Christmas - At first glance, one might not consider a section that deals with Christmas as being a useful secondary supplemental add-on.

The last type of insurance mentioned is renters insurance. Although it isnt necessarily required, it could save a bundle in the long run if something catastrophic happens. Thats right--insurance premiums should be included on the monthly budget spreadsheet as well.

Ask the landlord how much utilities they typically run and make a quick call to the utility companies to double-check the accuracy of the landlords estimate.
