Who mostly handles them in your house?
Is there anything in particular you do to keep on top of them - written budgets, programs, etc?

Yup, we have a written budget (Excel style) we update whenever needed. Generally, I update it throughout the month and DH creates the new one for each month and adjusts stuff. We've had one for a long time, it works great for us. I also pay all the bills.

Dh does them. No budget. I just check the bank account to see if there is anything in it before I go shopping. Pretty bad...I know!

Rodger does them. I stress and worry about them too much. Rent and bills ect get paid automatically. We also have auto deductions into savings for us and for the girls and for certain expenses. Anything left over in the main account is free to be spent on whatever.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

Dh does it all. It doesn't really change month to month. We set aside money if we know we have a large expense coming up. DH also has it set up where he gets a text message on his phone whenever I use the debit card. I was so bad about keeping receipts and such when it came to balancing the check book, so he just keeps track of the spending that way. Works great for us!
