Sinking Funds are an excellent tool to use to prepare for expenses that are not a part of your regular monthly spending plan.

What Is A Sinking Fund?

A Sinking Fund is a fund formed by setting aside money for the gradual repayment of a debt or replacement of a wasting asset.

It’s like a savings account for a very specific purpose.

How To Use Sinking Fund Charts

  1. Print the Sinking Fund Charts, of your choice. When you print, I suggest using Card Stock for durability.
  2. Determine how much you need to save for your sinking fund and write the amount on the Goal line.
  3. Record the date you would like to have your sinking fund fully funded.
  4. Divide your saving goal by 10.
  5. Write each increment on the lines shooting off the graphic with the smallest on the bottom. If you plan to save $15,000, you would write $1500 on the bottom line, $3000 on the next line, etc.
  6. As you save, color in the lines! Each increment consists of 10 lines to fill in. If you plan to save $15,000 and each increment represents $1500, each line would represent $150. For every $150 you save, color in a line.
  7. Make your Sinking Fund a part of your monthly budget! If you plan to save $15,000 and you want to save it in 10 months, you need to incorporate $1500 a month into your spending plan.

Annual Car Insurance Sinking Fund Chart Printable

Annual Car Insurance Sinking Fund Chart

When we moved into an apartment a few years ago, our insurance rates went UP. We were told it was because living in an apartment creates more risk and it would go down again when we moved back into a house.

Imagine my surprise when, just eight months later, we moved into a house in a great part of town and yet that same insurance agent told us our rates would, in fact, NOT go down. He lost my trust and I started the process of pricing out insurance with other companies. Through this process, I discovered we could save quite a bit by making an annual payment instead of month to month. The hard part is, making sure you actually have the money when the annual insurance bill arrives. That’s where an Annual Insurance Sinking Fund Chart comes in!

We found a better insurance rate and made the switch. Our Annual Insurance Sinking Fund has helped us stay on track to pay annually and keep our rates low!

There was a time when I wanted to pay our homeowner’s insurance myself. I didn’t want to depend on our mortgage company to do it. To me, that left room for mistakes to be made.

However, it was tough when the bill came … because I didn’t plan for it. I had purchased a duplex at the sweet young age of 21 and, although I was pretty good with money, there were so many directions for it to go.

These days, our homeowner’s insurance and property taxes are included with our mortgage. So far, so good. If we change back to paying them separately, this Homeowner’s Insurance Sinking Fund Chart will come in handy!

There’s a new iPhone you are super excited about! BUT those things aren’t cheap. Rather than add payments to your already atrocious phone bill, you want to pay CASH! Let us help with the Phone Sinking Fund Chart!

A few years ago, I was sporting the iPhone 4S in a massive OtterBox. That thing was pristine but it had issues. Issues like not dinging when a text was received or not showing me texts at all. You know the drill … slowly but surely phones lose their oomph and need to be replaced. Seven is my favorite number so I saved my allowance for months in anticipation of a shiny new iPhone 7 Plus. Texts were sporadic but I could make phone calls! I could make it work!

Eventually, I saved enough to purchase that new iPhone 7 Plus and it felt GREAT to pay CASH! I didn’t touch the family spending plan. Nope! I did it all on my own with my $100/month allowance! I gave up new clothes, shoes, and eating out in order to get that shiny new phone!

Puppy Sinking Fund Chart

Puppy Sinking Fund Chart

Have you been looking to add a puppy to the family but the costs astound you? Our Puppy Sinking Fund Chart will give you the visual you need to save for your new pet!

When my daughter was in third grade (she’s a senior now), she desperately wanted a pet. Since my husband and son are both allergic to fur, we did a lot of research into pets we could all live happily with … and be able to breath around. We had had fish and considered a bigger tank with a larger variety of fish but my daughter wanted a pet she could play with. We contemplated a tortoise but quickly realized the space a tortoise would require was more than we had to spare. A dog seemed much simpler but what about the allergies? THEN, we discovered hypo-allergenic dogs were a thing! Would a hypo-allergenic dog really work though?

We told our daughter if she saved enough to buy a hypo-allergenic dog, she could have one! Hypo-allergenic dogs aren’t cheap! Justine saved every last cent she had until she had $450. That girl was determined! She is now the proud owner of an 8-year-old Shihtzu Bichon whom our family adores!

Thankfully, the boys in the family have never had an allergic response to TeddiBear!

Rainy Day Sinking Fund Chart

Rainy Day Sinking Fund Chart

The Rainy Day Sinking Fund Chart is here to act as the middleman between your spending plan and emergency fund.

Rainy Days equal a dark sky, rain, and no desire to do anything but curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book.

A Sunny Day energizes you. The day is long and your motivation high.

Oftentimes, we will use the abundance of motivation we have on the sunny days to prepare for the rainy days. Here, in the Pacific Northwest, we cherish the sunny days. Those are the days we get the yard work done, wash the cars, hike, bike, and get out and have fun. We are sure to enjoy the sunny days because we know the rain will come.

How does that relate to money?

When things are going well and you have more than enough, save it for a rainy day when things are a little tough. Hey! That rhymed!

Many people think of a Rainy Day Fund the same as an Emergency Fund. I like to think of it as the Emergency Fund’s younger sibling. It’s the fund you can go to when something pops up unexpectedly. Like you lose your glasses or get a ticket from one of those cool cameras at popular intersections … ahem.

I don’t know about you but it really bothers me to have to dip into the Emergency Fund. A Rainy Day Fund? It’s like the middleman. The fund that ebbs and flows.

The Rainy Day Fund is the fund that keeps you free from stress over the unexpected little stuff because … you got it covered … get it? Covered like an umbrella covers … hey, I tried!

Even contractors have made the same comment when bidding on jobs. Really!

Yes, a big-screen television is on the list of stuff we want but, I have to admit, it ranks way down there with new doorknobs to replace the gold ones that were once so popular.

But maybe you’re ready? I just read in the Costco Connection about OLED televisions. They just keep getting better! A big-screen television is important to a lot of people. It’s like a sign you’ve really made it in this world. It’s like a trophy you hang above the fireplace that says, WE MADE IT. We’re rolling in the dough! Ha!
