Grandma's Jars is a methodology, a community, and an app that teaches people how to budget, how to save, and how to live debt free. Our goal is to educate and support as many couples and individuals we can to throw off the shackles of debt and master their money. 

The journey begins with the Master your Money Bootcamp, a complete course in how to start budgeting and avoiding the pitfalls that many fall into. It includes 40 days access to our Web App to help you take control of your finances.

Grandma's Jars Methodology

  • Get A Grasp On Your Expenses: Truly understand your situation by discovering what all your expenses are, how much they are, and when they’re due.

  • Compare Apples to Apples: Establish a direct comparison between what you spend and what you earn by converting income and expenses to monthly figures.

  • Save Ahead for Expenses: Don’t wait for an expense to ‘come appear’, and then figure out how you’ll pay for it. Plan ahead so you don't have to rely on loans or credit cards to get by.

  • Track Your Spending: Record spending to make informed spending decision which takes aways the stress and financial uncertainty.

  • Reconcile Accounts to Budget: Matching your actual bank balance to your budget at the end of each month. This will allow you to track spending and make adjustments as you progress.

A word from Phil

Founder of Grandma's Jars

Over the years, we’ve integrated Grandma’s wisdom into a modern methodology replacing real jars with virtual jars and paper money has been replaced by online bank accounts. To provide encouragement and support, we are building a strong online community of like-minded members and coaches.

We care deeply about the success of our members and will do what we can to help your persevere and stay on track. If you slack off and forget to log in for a while, you can be sure a budget coach will follow up on you. At the end of each month, your personal financial coach will remind you to complete your End-of-Month Summary to ensure your budget reconciles with your bank account.

The power of a good budget is in what it allows us to achieve. After all, no one budgets for the sake of budgeting alone. We developed our budgeting methodology to help give our members a road map with which they could eliminating debt, build a cash reserve, and work towards achieving meaningful lifestyle goals.

Our goal is to make managing your finances and paying debts as easy and efficient as possible. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we have web and mobile apps, member forums, email reminders, and Skype based meetings with our financial coaches. Our heartfelt desire is that every member of Grandma’s Jars succeeds in taking control of his or her finances.

We know that our methodology works. We know that peoples' lives are changed for the better, providing them with a huge sense of peace and excitement regarding the future.

Grandma’s Jars will work for you. My team and I look forward to helping you achieve the financial peace you deserve.
