What People Are Saying

about the Debt Free Mom Pay Period Budget System

Before the template I was using a combination of a paper notebook and a google sheet. It was stressful trying to figure out what areas I needed to lower expenses in. The template is wonderful! Even my husband who refuses to look at the budget, will look at the budget categories and %’s. It has also helped a lot with what to pay on which payday and for us to see where we can lower expenses.

I had tried every budgeting tool you can imagine and I failed at every one. I couldn’t figure out how to budget for the month when I didn’t have the money yet. It was a disaster and I felt such shame that I couldn’t do it. I felt dumb and like something was wrong with me. I don’t know if I can put this into words. It’s literally CHANGED MY LIFE. For the first time in my life (I'm almost 40) I finally feel in control of my money.

Carly taught me how to look at my budget and money goals in an entirely different light. I used to feel scattered in personal finance, but her methods taught me how to make more preformed quicker decisions towards money goals. Carly is also super relatable and she explains things in a way that’s super easy to understand, even for someone like me who has never been good at math and numbers! I highly recommend her course!!
