Checkbook registers come in many sizes, shapes, and colors; yet, for all of their physical diversities, their only function is to provide information about your bank account. And since you are basing your lifestyle on the amount of funds in your bank account; it would behoove you to have an accurate account. Remember, you are the first line of defense against potential problems that can arise from having misinformation. Of course, you can be like our friend above who waited and had his card returned, deflated and useless only then to realize that there is a serious problem. First, you must balance your checkbook. You can either use software, or pen and paper to accomplish this task. Now, if the concept of balancing a checkbook eludes you, just search the internet on how to balance your checkbook. And, as you balance your checkbook, you should pay particular attention to missed transactions, bad math, or any unexpected transactions. I remember that on one occasion I had recorded an unexpected deposit as a withdraw in my checkbook register. So, to my chagrin, my $150.00 deposit became on paper, a $300.00 withdraw.

There isnt a company in this country that doesnt use budget spreadsheets as a way of evaluating their financial health and deciding where to cut costs.

This will offer you valuable information about what is available. Most people like to include their family members in the planning process but this does not mean that you should accommodate all their opinions. Stick to a guest list that you will be able to afford. Before you set your budget, get quotes from different suppliers. This gives you a good opportunity to compare all the prices in the market before you settle on specific ones. For all the items that you intend to include in your budget, make sure you get at least three quotes for each one of them. Looking at various vendors will help to bring down the costs. Once you make a purchase, make sure you get a receipt. This will make it easier for you to fill in your wedding budget spreadsheet.

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. That way, you make the process much faster because you will not have to get the totals manually using a calculator. This also prevents inaccurate computations on your budget.

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!).

Thanks to budgeting tools such as a monthly budget spreadsheet, planning and monitoring your income and expenses can be done in a breeze. A budget spreadsheet allows you to update your entries easily without affecting the accuracy of figures in your budget. Monthly budget spreadsheets vary in layout, features, and information. 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 amounts you put into the variable expenses column of your monthly budget spreadsheet are approximations of the actual amounts every month.

Include Groceries on Your Monthly Budget Spreadsheet Groceries should also be included on the monthly budget spreadsheet. Depending on where you live and how well you shop--using coupons and buying larger packages of paper products and non-perishables--you could easily spend $80 a week in groceries just for one person (and thats not eating steak every night or eating out). By the way, avoid eating out, if at all possible, and settle for a hearty meal at home. Find Good Insurance The insurance industry has grown tremendously and so has the cost--car insurance, health insurance, and renters insurance, to name a few. Your best bet in finding good rates rests on your history and good research. For example, if youve been ticketed for reckless operation recently, your rates could be double the normal amount. As far as health insurance, some companies are offering more than one type of plan--choose the more affordable one based on your current circumstances and you can keep some of your hard-earned money where it belongs--in your pocket or in the bank. The last type of insurance mentioned is renters insurance. Although it isnt necessarily required, it could save a bundle in the long run if something catastrophic happens. Thats right--insurance premiums should be included on the monthly budget spreadsheet as well.
