Minimalist budgeting: share your brilliance!

Minimalist Parenting: Enjoy Modern Family Life More by Doing Less

Christine and I are making great progress on our book Minimalist Parenting, and it's finally time to bring you in.

As you probably know, this is the real fun for me (for both of us, really). I've been looking forward to sharing the book-writing process with you because so much of what I'm writing about started here.

We're going to host conversations about various topics we're covering in the book over at the Minimalist Parenting blog. Today, we kick off the conversation talking about everyone's, uh, favorite topic, money.

Specifically: budgeting, tracking expenses (or not), curtailing unnecessary spending. We've got our methods and our filters for what's worth our attention, but what about you?

  • Minimalist budgeting: what are your best tips & tools?
  • How to you balance the importance of tracking your money with sometimes-too-detailed accounting? (In other words, is it really necessary to keep every single receipt?)

Let's talk! We invite you to hop on over to the MP blog and share your thoughts and questions. We'd love to get a lively conversation going.

    When I searched online, most suggestions involved removing the milk from its sterilized carton. The transfer into an unsterilized container would make the milk or cream spoil faster.

    The point of this comparison is just that a web-based enterprise does not merely succeed overnight. Confident, you’ll find usually exceptions, but most new organizations take time and work to succeed. If any individual tells you differently, then be careful!
