Write it down to make it happen!

Writing by hand is proven to leave a larger impact in your memory than entering it in your phone or typing it in the computer.

This is why a paper-based budget is so effective. Become more mindful of your spending habits, and how much you spend. When you write down your goals, and your habits you are more likely to be able to reach them!

The Canadian Budget Planner is easy to use and customizable to your specific needs. It includes sections for tracking your expenses, setting spending and savings goals, and categorizing your expenses.

You’ll be able to see exactly where your money is going and make informed decisions about your spending. You’ll be able to track your progress and adjust your budget as needed to ensure that you’re staying on track.

But our budget planner isn’t just about tracking your spending. It also includes tips and strategies for managing your credit card debt, building your credit score, and achieving your financial goals.

With our printable budget planner, you’ll have everything you need to take control of your finances and achieve financial success. Plus, it’s printable, so you can use it anywhere, anytime, and as many times as you want!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this only for Canadians?

This is for everyone!

I am Canadian, my website is but this Budget planner is for Canadians AND anyone else! There is nothing excluding others from using this document.

Do you sell a hard copy?

I only sell the Canadian Budget Planner as a PDF.


I am not going to tell you how many copies of a spending tracker you need each month. You may also not want to carry around 100 pages at a time. With our PDF version, you can print what you need, as needed, as many times as you like. 

Is this a monthly budget planner?

With the Canadian Budget Planner, you can budget any way you like.  Use it to budget monthly,  budget by pay period,  or do both! 

 It’s up to you!

How much time does it take to use the planner?

To set up your planning documents and get yourself organized, I encourage you to take an hour or two to get all your information sorted. Some documents you will go back and update monthly or as needed. 

To use the budget – it will take longer the first time you use it as you get used to it. Additional budgets should be quick to copy over what remains the same and review and revise what needs changing from last month. 

Expense tracker – I recommend to track your spending as you go – Daily or weekly at most. The more frequent you do it, the less time overall it will take you. A few minutes a day, or 15 minutes a week should do it. 

Monthly Review & Reflection –  15 minutes

How do I use the planner?

The Planner comes with detailed instructions on how to best use each of the documents included. 

Update documents as needed as you work toward your goals.
