    Do you find that setting a household finance budget is difficult, or does it make life easier?

    Please mention if you use particular software to track budgets and spending.

    Setting a budget really helps me with spending and keeping things in line.  I don't use software, just a calculator and my checkbook.  I use a per diem method as my guide to make money last from one paycheck to the next and it has worked very well for me.

    A household budget is a must, but let it be a very respected guideline not an unbreakable rule.  There are times when entertainment may have to give something to medical expenses or auto repair to food.

    I love my quicken checkbook which projects my expense out for a month and allows me to see at a glance what to expect.
