The subject pretty much explains it Smile
I’m looking for guidance and advice on managing our home finance.
Neither my husband nor myself are naturally savvy in this arena and it’s time we got on top of things.
DH definitely understands more about finances and accounting than I do, but day to day we need to improve.
In theory I think what we are earning should be covering our expenses - but it’s not working week to week. We are living paycheck to paycheck and by the end of the two week cycle there’s nothing left and it’s an anxious few days hoping nothing essential runs out before the next paycheck.

I’m not going to go into the details of our finances here. But if anyone has any suggestions of websites, books or YouTube videos, I’d love to learn!
Something explained in simple, easy to follow terms preferably Smile

Mint.com and YNAB both have good basic videos explaining their approach to budgeting (and how to use their apps for it). Works for a LOT of people.
