The second big use of the Excel Spreadsheet is my direct mail campaign. I use the spreadsheet along with MsWord to create a mail merge, the two programs work together to print addresses directly on flyers, post cards or envelopes. I can print 10,000 names in a few hours. There is no need to print labels and then have to stick them on your mailer. Another use for the spreadsheet is to do job costing. You can keep track of your painters hours and compare those hours to the hours you used to calculate the estimate for the job. Enter the painters names in the first column, you can then enter to rooms or job names in the first row. Then in each column under the room name put the hours or you can break it down further, putting the separate items like walls and molding/trim and keep track of the hours spent doing individual items. Of course there is always the profit and loss statement or spreadsheet with all expenses, which you give to the accountant. Using the spreadsheet to keep track of company expenses is a good use, and again you can use the "AutoSum" feature to keep totals. One nice thing about Excel is that if you change a figure in the column or row that you are totaling, the "AutoSum" will automatically adjust the total to reflect the new figure. So whatever uses you find for this program, you will find that it saves time and energy to do these repetitious jobs. And it will do things like adding or multiplying correctly and with ease.
The key to keep the overwhelm from taking over is to break your goals into smaller and more manageable chunks. You do not need to make the $10,000 this month, you just need to make $4001 this month. I am pretty sure you can find something you can do over the next month to make $1 extra. Once you have done that then aim for $10 more, or $100 more a month. You take these large goals an break them into smaller manageable chunks, and let the small chunks build on each other until the big goal is achieved. Do something every day to move towards your goals Once you have the goals broken down into small more manageable chunks focus on one thing you can do each day to move yourself towards those goals. It does not have to be a giant step, it can be a simple small step. It doesnt have to be finding a second job, it could be finding a good newspaper with good job listings. Then the next day could be looking through it. The third day making some calls, etc.
Having trouble making ends meet? Cant figure out why youre a thousand dollars short? If at the end of each month you wonder where your paycheck went, its definitely time to draw up budget spreadsheets.The very first thing you need to understand is that budgeting is not an event; it is a process. Knowing where your money goes is challenging, but this can be made so much easier with a budget and a plan. What Is a Budget Spreadsheet? Budget spreadsheets are tools for tracking the money that comes in and the money that goes out of a household at any given period. Some use this tool weekly; others use it monthly. The frequency of use is completely up to you. You may even track your daily spending if you think you need to! The goal is to help you learn better spending habits by showing you precisely how you have been spending your income. If you can accomplish this only through a daily monitoring of your cash inflow and outflow, then by all means update your spreadsheet daily.
