I’ve been a photographer for ten years and one of my biggest struggles was budgeting an income that was so irregular. I tried to find budgeting systems that worked with an income that can be $1k in January then $15k in June!
But each time, I found systems that were for normal paychecks.
Five years ago, I built my own budgeting system with pen and paper. This year I had this lightbulb moment that if I had a tough time finding something I love, then maybe I could help others who haven’t been able to find the right fit either! So I built something I’m SO proud of! Cast and Copper: Percentage budgeting for unpredictable incomes
SO HERE’S WHERE I AM IN THE PROCESS:
– The journal is fully designed (took me about 2 months to get it perfect!)
– I found a manufacturer that I LOVE and I feel like they’ll do a wonderful job.
– My first bulk order of journals will cost $2k to order.
– Once I place the order in mid-January, I hope to have them made and shipped within a month.
HERE’S MY PLAN:
Because I felt like getting a business loan to cover the purchase of a budgeting/get-debt-free journal was hypocritical (LOL), I’ll have PRE-ORDERS! I’m giving it two weeks for the pre-orders and I need to sell 85 journals to pay for the cost of the first order. I’ll be making the order by January 14th! I also have the Printable version for anybody who wants to print the sheets themselves. All of those sales will also go to the order!
HERE ARE WAYS YOU CAN HELP
I have the BEST people in my corner who are asking how they can support me, I’m incredibly appreciative! Here are some ways you can help!
1. The most obvious option is to pre-order the journal from ashleekayshop.com <3
2. A Pinterest re-pin and/or social media shoutout would help spread the word!

I’ve said the word BUDGETING a lot (hello SEO!) but I would love to tell you more about what the book offers, because there’s more to it than just budgeting!
