The Utility page contains all the payments you have to make, except for loans and debts. Examples of items to be included in the Utility page are power, water, transportation cost, groceries, and clothing. Create three columns for the company name, deadline of payment, and estimated amount to be paid. When you receive your billing statement, change your projected amount to the actual amount as indicated on the statement. List all your debts in the Debt page of your home budget spreadsheet. Include the deadlines for payment, minimum monthly payment, interest rates, and the sum of all debts. If you plan to pay the smallest debts first, arrange your list of debts from the smallest to the largest. Finally, return to the Budget page that now has the total amounts of every page in your spreadsheet and then deduct your expenses from your income.

Budget spreadsheets can be done by hand or on any number of websites and they help you by determining first what your overall income is and then what your expenses are. You will have to list every expense, whether it is a once a year expense (like property taxes), or a daily expense (like your morning coffee that costs five dollars). By taking a look at all of these numbers, you might be astounded by what you see. More importantly, you will then be able to make adjustments to where you are putting your money.

Did you know that there are two driving forces, or perspectives at work in achieving your long term goals in life? It true, they are yours and the author behind the home budget or budget spreadsheet you have opted to use on a daily bases; and any commitment failure from either end will most likely cause a derailment of any and all of your long term goals. So let us take under consideration, these two perspectives and how they apply to achieving your long term goals in life.The first perspective is of course yours, and is broken down into two parts. These two areas are your personal commitment to achieving your long term goals and will work apart from your budget spreadsheet; but they are none the less foundational to its success. First, you will need to exercise focus and/or determination. Please, keep in the cracks and crevices of your mind that abstract goals in life that are akin to "power", "financial freedom", and "being rich" are nice; but will soon fade away, since wealth and power are at best relative; you will never earn enough, nor have enough power. Ergo, these are unfocused and unrealistic "types" of goals to have in life. Focused goals in life should revolve around items of need, trips or get-a-ways, and personal achievements. Thou, this is not a comprehensive list; these are however, tangible and attainable for the resolute of mind. Secondly, you will also need to allow for time in reaching your long term goals in life. Many families become discouraged in the short term, soon giving up for failing to grasp this basic concept in Long term goal achievement. When looking at other families we tend to see the results and not the determination, hard work, and time that had produced such results. So please, work hard, remain patient, focus on each goal, and allow for plenty of time!
