Welcome to Budget101.com! We realize that it can be difficult and frustrating coming to a new site and trying to figure out how to navigate it or figure out what it has to offer, so we’re going to give you a brief tour of the different features at your fingertips!
First and Foremost, as of January 1, 2017, this site contains more than 1,950,000+ pages of information that has been compiled here by the site owner and members like yourself since 2001! To make all of that information easier to find and use, we’ve divided it into 3 Main Sections.
Those 3 sections are as follows:
A large selection of topics organized into multiple categories for easy perusal. The articles are generally more in depth that forum posts and often have accompanying photograph tutorials, such as the widely popular Super Laundry Sauce Recipe. Articles have a “comment” area as well for members to ask questions, or share their experiences or ideas on that topic. Articles are divided into multiple categories and sub-categories to make it easier to locate a topic quickly.
While this area also adds a wide range and variety of topics, the forum is more of a “discussion” place. The topics vary widely and also come in multiple topics. Some of these topics may seem to “overlap” topics within the Articles section. In the forums you will have ample opportunity to ask questions, share your ideas, recipes, quickly and effortlessly. This is the place to ask a question if you want a rapid response as we generally have about 3,500 members on at any given time, sometimes more.
The blogs are an area for you to publicly journal your trials, errors and triumphs in budgeting, saving money, raising a family, and more. The blogs are a fantastic place to share what’s happening with you right now, input your goals and it gives you a place to look back and see how far you’ve come!
Registering on Budget101.com is free! However, there are several different levels of registration available.
