Putting together a family budget that everyone in your household can realistically stick to is harder
than it seems. While many of us come up with budgets, using our best intentions to predict our
expenditure over the coming months, the truth is that it can be incredibly challenging to try and
restrict your own spending – never mind the spending of your family too.
While you can spend hours scribbling on a piece of paper and calculating figures, it’s important to
have a plan in place that’s going to help you to stick to the decisions you make. Here are just a few

Myself, Bear & Bear’s daddy recently went on a family holiday together (if you follow me on Twitter, you probably already knew this) and we had such a lovely holiday, whilst also being on a budget. We even met up with the wonderful Amy & her little dude and had such a lovely time. Because we have family in different areas of the country, we will take little breaks to visit them but this time, we wanted to go somewhere different and see different things. We stayed in South Cornwall for a week and honestly, we didn’t have any trouble with money or not having anything to do etc. Bearing in mind we also drove (I drove) all the way from Wigan in Manchester to Southern Cornwall and we had an 18 month old in tow, it was challenging.
