• Welcome to the Beautiful Budget Bee!


      Instead of a Quilting Bee

      We are a Budgeting Bee. Building our Budgets through One on One help, Group Courses and Community. Working together to build our best lives. One dollar at a time.

    • Hello!
      I'm Anita Johnson

      Founder, Host, Instructor and Queen Bee

      " Sometimes it's just easier to do the hard stuff with others"

      About me

      I am non-math whiz, designer techy artist who enjoys teaching technology for over 20 years. I worked on budgets as a Product Designer on Microsoft Money to my own personal budgets from pen & paper. spreadsheets, to Quicken to the latest online tech like YNAB (You Need a Budget) I've also worked it from the emotional and spiritual side of money. Abundance, debt, a little or a lot. I understand and relate to the angst and difficulties surrounding money. Whether it's tracking or planning technical or emotional.

      A Beautiful Budget Bee was created so that women can have fun together exploring using money and techie apps.

      Why Community?

      Being a part of a small community has been a big part in my beautiful budget journey.
      Knowing I am not alone.

      Hearing others strengths and struggles, setbacks merged to victories helps remind me I am not alone.
      And when I feel like I haven’t succeeded at all-- the community REMINDS me of my victories.

      We have a long shared history.
      Learning and growing together.
      The results are awesome. Not just for me but because I get to see the victories.

      It reminds me that we are one and that together we can do it. Even if alone, we could not.

    • We are a Circle of Friends

      Beautiful Budget Bee & Tea Party

      Where we meet and work on our Budgets together. Its not a class but more like a Lab—where we are all working together and focusing on our YNAB Budget for an hour. Harnessing the group energy to move forward :)

      We are just getting started.

      I do have a couple of bitty bee sized course put together that people can access for free when joining in person.

      One is “Beautifying Your Budget”
      Putting a little lipstick and fun on your Budget with colorful emoji’s.

      Another, “Inspired YNAB Routine Checklist”
      Build your “MoneyComb” on a Daily, Weekly, Monthly basis by checking off these items to fashion a beautiful budget everyday.
