However, there are several elements that are commonly used in these spreadsheets. o Income. This category is a list of different income sources such as salary, commissions, bonuses, and business revenue, among others. o Variable expenses. These are your expenses that change a little each month. Examples of variable expenses are clothing, food, recreation, entertainment, utilities (water and power bills), and groceries.

The money can be used in case the flowers you ordered for are not delivered in time and you have to order others.

The expenses that do not vary every month are called fixed expenses, which include your loan payments, rental fees, and insurance premiums. o Total income and expenses. When using a monthly budget spreadsheet, you will need to get your total income, total variable expenses, and total fixed expenses. Get the sum of the fixed and variable expenses and then deduct it from your total income. The resulting amount is called the disposable income, which can be used for savings or as an emergency fund. In case your expenses are higher than your income, you will have to make some adjustments in the amounts you allotted in your variable expenses. Managing the household finances is made a lot easier when you use a spreadsheet. When using a spreadsheet program for budgeting, you need to use formulas in calculating all the totals.
