The objective of this research study is to assess the community's potential and find ways to promote proper "Household Accounting" for Sanlomjoy Community, Tambon Suthep, Amphur Muang, Chiang Mai. Data used in this research are gathered from a sample of 222 households. They are analyzed by the study of frequency distribution, percentages, and average values. It is found out that the households have their potential for understanding proper "Household Accounting" in a high level. Their expenditures are spent on basic items needed in their everyday living. They receive their income from their main regular jobs. Their household members have normal spending suitable for their income levels. However, the household accounting rule of "having a notebook with you all the time so that you can write down and take notes of all your spending," is followed in a low level. The fact that household accounting has been consistently recorded and prepared is also in a low level. The problems and difficulties of implementing household accounting, found to be in a high level in this study, are the lack of knowledge about household accounting and how to make it useful and also the lack of motivation for preparing household accounting. In addition, the households suggest that governmental organizations promote and support the importance of consistently preparing household accounting so that there will be a financial planning within each household. They want to see promotion of extra job opportunities and extraค sources of income within the community. They also want every household to participate in developing their own community because this is a good project. This research study reveals the community's potential and the possible directions of promoting and supporting household accounting that will lead to the development of the community.
