Hi all. We desperately need to curb our spending so a family budget is in order! I would love to hear about your household budgets and any tips you have? My wife and I are thinking of holding a certain amount of cash each per week for general spending. Other things like groceries and fuel will be separate and paid for on our credit card. We've always worked hard and had good incomes so a budget has never really been a consideration for us. Now we have two young children and we really want to get ahead over the next 10 years to ensure we have the freedom to invest, holiday and enjoy life the way we want it without having to worry about money too much.
