If you are on a budget or looking to get on one, tracking your finances plays a major role in how successful your budget will be. A personal finance spreadsheet is a great way to keep track of your income and expenses. By using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or a Google docs spreadsheet you can easily see exactly how much you are spending and how much you are saving each month. The great thing about personal budgeting spreadsheets is they can easily be modified to fit your budget. You can enter the exact categories you use monthly for your income and your expenses. These categories can be really detailed such as having individual credit cards listed by name or they can be broad such as having one group named credit cards for all your credit card bills.

And to avoid it, we say that we would do it at a later date. The most important area to cover first is your fixed expenditure area - rent payment, utilities, insurance, food and clothing, gas (for your car or cars), etc. So, once you get the salary in hand, you automatically deduct these and the balance left has to be budgeted. Everything said and done, let us see some means and ways by which we can save money and make our household budget spreadsheet or monthly budget spreadsheet work. 1. Curtail down on your restaurant visits - make them very occasional. I dont think home cooked food is bad! 2. In summer, put off your air conditioner when you are not in the room or in the house. Even if you are there, try to use the fan(s). 3. If by chance the electricity trips, immediately switch off all the electronic items that are on. When current comes, the meter moves twice the normal if the items are left on. This increases the electricity units. 4. During winter, wear a good amount of warm clothing than wearing something flimsy in the house and letting the room heater run for long hours. 5. Instead of going to multiplexes every time you feel like watching a movie and spending through your nose, rent DVD and watch movies at home. 6. Instead of buying books, you can borrow them from your local library at a very cheap membership fee. Nowadays, books are so expensive! 7. Get discounted store coupons for little purchases from the malls. This way you can save a lot. There are many other little save-money techniques. Go by it and you will see your monthly budget spreadsheet reduce considerably.

Once your checkbook is balanced, you should take a moment to look at the wealth of information contained therein. What? What is this wealth of information you are talking about? Try looking at your checkbook as a snap shot of your spending habits over time. By looking at what you purchase, where you go to purchase it, and how frequently you travel there to purchase it; it will soon be clear to your brain that all of those little trips to the store sure do add up! Look at all the gas you are using, and the wear and tear you are putting on your vehicle. Since you are spending the money already, you might as well purchase the items once a week and not on an everyday basis. Likewise, since you already know the items that you purchase on a daily basis, you might consider buying them in bulk (only if bulk means costing less!).

Even the most responsible person will encounter challenges, but the best way to succeed is to plan, plan, and plan some more. Setting up Your Monthly Budget Spreadsheet Setting up your own monthly budget spreadsheet is easy to do in popular programs like Excel and Quicken. Developing an estimate of the costs youre likely to accrue while out on your own makes good sense. That way, youll be able to quickly determine what is affordable and potentially avoid falling into a bad situation. If youre thinking about renting a place, check out the neighborhood, and better yet, talk to the neighbors. In addition to paying rent, some of the major costs that should be included on the monthly budget spreadsheet are the utilities. Ask the landlord how much utilities they typically run and make a quick call to the utility companies to double-check the accuracy of the landlords estimate.

These tables are quite efficient because they are automated with the same tabs that reflect a gain or a loss in normal ledger accounts. If at the end of the calculation the total is shown to tilt towards more expenditure, it appears automatically in scarlet numerals whereas if the total figure leans towards gains, then it is highlighted in a dark shade. This is often the lead that gives the user the assurance to go ahead planning using the same convenient table. Budget spreadsheets also aid in tracking expenditure due to the fact that they can be compatible with a number of similar technologies. They can be used in creating lists in emails as well as for being copied by browsers on a page to be viewed on another program. They can also be used to fill in data that has been scraped from any template because of their high compatibility.
