Budgeting online?

Is there a program out there to help with creating a budget? We are "there", at that place where its time to start really looking at the long term and figuring out what we can and can't afford.

My husband just recently took a new job, we moved 900 miles, and now I'm finding out that I'm losing my job doing medical transcription, and the prospects are dim. He wants me to just stop working and I don't know if we can afford it.

Mint.com is a good start.
There's also:

We completed Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, and it allowed us to get to a place financially where I will become a SAHM once our baby is here.

I am sorry you have lost your job.
That on top of moving, etc can be very stressful.

There are some great free resources online through Cooperative Extension services around the country.

This first link is about dealing with finances and unemployment:

and a link to a plethora of financial education resources:

including this series:

Thank you all for the links, I have some researching to do! We are so close to having 2 more kids out on their own, and with DH's new job I can probably make it work on one income, but you know how it is, I don't want to feel like I have no control!
