Next, add the dollar amount of your goals and the time in month or years. The long term goals will probably be in years and the short term goals in months. Set up a formula to divide the total goal amount by the goal length in months. This is the amount you need to save each month to achieve your goals. Set up a budget to help you save more money if you feel you cant make your goal savings each month. For extra help, open up another sheet and record your progress. Every week or every month write about how you are reaching your goals and if you are able to save the minimum each month. Try to save a little more each month and cut down on your time table, or if you can reach your monthly goal, adjust it. With this plan, you can include goals to save for big items such as a car or house, or to pay down debt.
I get a great feeling every time I achieve a goal, whether I made it a week ago, or 5 years ago. There comes a certain satisfaction when you reach a successful point in your life. Making goals is critical for a fulfilling life. When it comes to finance, if you want to successfully plan your money, you need to make goals. I love spreadsheets. I use them for everything I can and every kind of organization. I, honestly, dont know what I would do without them or what how I used to cope before I first discovered them. I use a spreadsheet to balance my checkbook, to manage my business expenses, and to make To Do lists to plan out my days. I also use spreadsheets to manage my money and set my financial goals.
Now that the columns you want reformatted to a different size have been chosen, it is time to do just that. Using your computers mouse, right click anywhere within the highlighted area. This will bring up a pop-up menu. On that menu is the option "column width". Click on that option. This will bring up a window asking you to enter in the width of the columns. If there is a number already in that box you will need to erase that first by highlighting it and pressing your "delete" key. Now type in the number "12" and click the "Ok" button. You should now see that all of the highlighted columns have changed to the size of 12. Repeat the steps above to alter the sizes and find one that looks more visually appealing for the spreadsheet that you are working on. Remember that at anytime you can undo what you just did by clicking the "Edit" menu option at the top of the screen and click the sub-menu option of "undo".
