Orlando Budget, Baby!


Isn't this great?! I'm so pleased with how this turned out.

This is an expense record book for our upcoming trip. Each page is a pocket for holding money and/or receipts. Printed on each pocket is space to record budgeted and actual expenses, with six different categories (Meals, Snacks, Fuel, Lodging, Entertainment, and Vehicle Maintenance).

Again, I thoroughly expect this to be abused on the trip, kicked around the floorboards, stuffed into the center console or glove compartment, etc. So I didn't use my good cardstock. I used the el-cheap-o stuff from a mega-pack I bought for my daughter to use (which is so flimsy, I had to use two layers for the front and back covers). The map was printed on plain printer paper from Google. License plate and letters were cut with a Coluzzle template. Ink and markers are SU!

Here's a pic of the inside:

This is a great idea. Where did you find the inside pages or was this something that you created? Your web site is just awesome...thanks so much for sharing

Hi Michelle,

Glad you like my blog! The inside pages for this budget book were created in Word. I set up my document under Page Setup to print two pages per sheet, landscape orientation, half-inch margins, then made one sheet of paper for each category. I then printed the pages on cardstock, folded them in half with the printing on the outside, glued the bottom shut, and enclosed the open edge in the binding.
