Yet there is no tool for project management that is more popular or widespread than the spreadsheet, despite the fact that spreadsheets are not designed to be project support tools. Even in organizations with an established project management tool, spreadsheets are used. There are obvious reasons for this. A spreadsheet program is on almost every computer in every organization, people are familiar with spreadsheets and how to use them, and people are pre-disposed to use these "office" types of software tools to solve problems. And I am right there with them. I love using spreadsheets to track all kinds of data. It is easy, convenient, and I admit ego-boosting to show off what I can do in a spreadsheet.
You may want to create a workbook with multiple sheets for various aspects of your budget. You can have one sheet that keeps track of savings and investments and another sheet that lists your monthly bills. You may also want to track your current spending on one sheet with columns for different categories. Some individuals will list the budgeted amount in one column and then list the actual amount spent in the column next to it. Spreadsheet applications are useful for home and small businesses. Some people keep a home inventory list on a spreadsheet and others use spreadsheets for a variety of applications. Creating your budget and maintaining it is easy when you use budgeting spreadsheets. These are also easy to print out if you desire.
Spreadsheets are an absolute must for every internet marketer, or business owner. If you are not familiar with them, then you should familiarize yourself with Google Spreadsheets. These sheets can be accessed from your Google account, and are 100% free, safe and secure, and very easy to use. Plus you can access them from anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. If you are new to online marketing, a spreadsheet may seem like a waste of time to you, but as you start building your webpages, and websites you will begin to see the importance of keeping all information stored neatly in one file, a several files. So I recommend you start off by keeping all your information neatly organized in order to avoid having to clean up a huge mess later.
