Planning for 2016

Happy December!   It’s time to set up your plan for your spending in 2016.

First, visit the link below.  This page will allow you to set a goal for the amount you’d like to set aside for each of your irregular categories, and you can also choose whether or not to carry your 2015 balances into 2016. If you’d like to start from scratch for 2016, just make sure all of the checkboxes are unchecked.

Once you get your goals set, then you should go to your budget plan for January, and adjust the amounts set aside for each irregular category to match the Average to set aside to meet goal column.  That way you’ll be setting aside enough money to reach your goals!  Once you set up January, the amounts will be carried over from month to month until you change them again.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know at help@pearbudget.com.

Happy budgeting!

    In is January 1 and I really wanted to work on my finances. I already have Pear Budget but I can’t get it to connect. Is the site down?

      Hi Sharon,

      So sorry about that! The company who hosts our website is having some troubles today–unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do to help them resolve things, but I know they’re working as hard as they can on the problem! The site has been up and down today–you could try again later, or hopefully tomorrow everything will be back to normal!

    Hi,
    The site is loading very slowly and sometimes not at all. Do you have an estimate of when it will be back up and running?
    Thanks & Happy New Year!

      Hi Sara,

      So sorry about that! The company who hosts our website is having some troubles–unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do to help them resolve things, but I know they’re working as hard as they can on the problem! They have not given us an ETA of when they hope to have it resolved, but hopefully it will be soon!

      While they are working on it, the site has been going up and down–it’s been up for 2 hours now this morning, so that’s always a good sign!
