Advanced Budgeting Kit

A Do-It-Yourself kit that will provide all of the information you need to get every aspect of your financial life in order.

What do I get with this kit?

I will give you every single piece of information I use to keep my own budget as tight as possible.  I do not keep my thermostat set at 50 degrees and I still have cable.  I still spend money, BUT, when I choose to spend money on something, I don’t want to spend a penny more than necessary.  That includes everything from clothing to utilities, entertainment and medical bills.

This do-it-yourself guide will give you the tools you need to become an Advanced Budgeter.

Who should NOT buy this kit?

  • Anyone who enjoys living paycheck to paycheck.
  • Anyone who enjoys having a lot of debt.
  • Anyone who prefers to always pay premium prices for entertainment.
  • Anyone who is not concerned about wasting money.
  • Anyone who loves to complain about not having any money.

Who is Alison and why does she know all about budgeting?

I am a mother and a wife who spent 15 years of my adult life overspending and being unorganized with my finances.  I overspent and got into debt in my hometown of Rapids City, Illinois, then my husband’s job moved us to Council Bluffs, IA, where we continued overspending.

I finally got tired of being so far in debt that we could not go on vacations or enjoy our hard earned money, so I started exploring the world of budgeting.  I tried a few different plans and got discouraged when I was not able to stick to those plans.  At the same time I was going through this journey, I worked in the collection department of a brokerage firm.  I talked to people who had lost everything (and then some), and it finally clicked for me.  None of them had a plan.  They were flying by the seat of their pants and often bankrupt in their retirement years because of it.  The key to managing your budget is planning.  You don’t necessarily have to stick to a strict plan, but you do need to be prepared for things you know are coming, and things that will probably come.  That covers a lot of ground and it took years to perfect my technique.

I have a passion to show and help others how I do this, because the things I hear people say on a regular basis tell me that there are so many who don’t know what to do, but they want to know.
