The Grandmas Jars Budget Bootcamp 2015 was highly valuable and encouraging experience through which I learned to manage my budget for the first time and be intentional with my finances.
The Bootcamp involved 12 group sessions in which Phil and Teresa guided use through the Grandmas Jars budgeting system. I always left these sessions feeling encouraged, inspired and well-equipped to make positive financial choices.
I came into the Bootcamp with one bank account and no system for keeping track of spending. Moving to a three bank account structure and the Grandmas Jars budgeting system has meant I am more aware of what I am spending money on and what I am saving towards. It gives me a really useful framework for deciding whether and when to buy something, and allows me to be accountable to my values, goals and intentions in how to spend money.
Key components of the system are the Grandmas Jars website which I find quite intuitive, along with the phone app which is particularly useful. The app allows me to easily check the balances in my “jars” and record spending as I go rather than sorting through piles of receipts!
I have been so blessed and encouraged by Phil and Teresa’s genuine passion and wisdom – I know the Grandmas Jars Bootcamp has set me in good stead for the future and will continue using this system.
