You were created to create.
You were designed to make a difference.
You have dreams to be fulfilled.
Plans have been formulated just for you, but…

You have bills to pay.
You’re upside down on your car.
You’re still paying off student loans.
You’re looking for the next 0% interest credit card so you can transfer your balance once again.

If you’re like most, your dreams have gotten lost under a mountain of financial stress.  Enter

Createmargin was launched to provide simple and practical steps to help you recover the dreams God created you to fulfill.  To do this, you must create margin in your financial life.  Once you have margin, you have room to dream.  The formula is easy –

Spend less.  Save more.  Give more.

That’s it.  In these pages you’ll find tips on how to do all three.

    Hi Barry,

    I just wanted to let you know that Adaptu, the tool you referenced here:, has been discontinued. But you probably know that already since they closed down last February 2013.

    If you’d like to replace the resource, I want to let you know that we have an alternative called Pocketbook ( that you might want to change your reference to instead. 🙂

    Best Regards,

    Barry – I don’t know if the site is active anymore, but I enjoyed looking through it. I’ve been studying the concept of margin in the Christian perspective, and your opening phrase, “You were designed to Create”, settles tightly with me. Are you still developing this concept and blog? My email and details are below
