So, I’ve shared before how I used the Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly for budgeting. Today we’re going to take a look at the planner Erin Condren has made specifically for budgeting- the Erin Condren Petite Budget Planner. I love the planner folio system from Erin Condren, and I really like some of the features of this petite budget book she has created, too. I filmed a video about my thoughts on this planner. You can watch that below.

This video was filmed a couple of weeks earlier, we are well into November now. However, I am planning to start using this in December and sharing how I’m doing that. I plan to set up this petite planner folio system with the budget book, goal setting book, meal planning book, and checklist journal. I’ll have reviews for those other petite planners coming soon! Here’s what I like about the Erin Condren petite budget planner-
First, you have a savings tracker for each month at the beginning of the book. You can track what you are saving for, how much you deposited, and the total saved. You can do two different savings goals per month.
Next, you have a month at a glance section where you can plan upcoming expenses, as well as your budget by category. I feel like the categories given are pretty good. Then you also have additional blank spaces to add your own, plus a place to track debt payments and savings.
Next, you’ve got a spending summary. There are 112 spaces for each month, so about 3-4 spaces per day on average.
At the back of the book you have some debt trackers so you can have a quick at a glance overview of the progress you’ve made on your debt over the 12 months. You also get a fun sheet of foiled budgeting stickers.
Overall I think this book has everything you need to manage your budget for 12 whole months. I love the idea of being able to see our progress on savings and debt, and to really take a look back at our spending, too. I can’t wait to dive into this book, and I’ll be sharing more about how I’m using it in upcoming videos on my channel, soon! I hope you enjoyed this look at the Erin Condren Petite Planner Budget Book!
