FI and I bought our first home in march this year, we have always lived off of one income and completly saved the other. Great prep for when you want to start a family too 🙂

@katherin788:  We’ve found that the software from youneedabudget.com works really well for us. It allows you to create a monthly budget by putting every dollar income into specific spending (groceries, internet bill, gas), saving, or debt reduction category. The software comes with budgeting lessons sent to your email and the blog has lots of great suggestions for improving the way you manage your money. It’s really helpful for setting up ways to save for expenses that don’t necessarily come up every month either (like property taxes).
