If at the end of each month you wonder where your paycheck went, its definitely time to draw up budget spreadsheets. The very first thing you need to understand is that budgeting is not an event; it is a process. Knowing where your money goes is challenging, but this can be made so much easier with a budget and a plan. What Is a Budget Spreadsheet? Budget spreadsheets are tools for tracking the money that comes in and the money that goes out of a household at any given period. Some use this tool weekly; others use it monthly. The frequency of use is completely up to you. You may even track your daily spending if you think you need to! The goal is to help you learn better spending habits by showing you precisely how you have been spending your income. If you can accomplish this only through a daily monitoring of your cash inflow and outflow, then by all means update your spreadsheet daily.

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. When you realize that you are paying over $1,500 for that morning coffee each year, you might re-think that! You might also realize that the same amount of money could pay off several of your credit cards, leading you on a path to being debt free.

Dont Forget About Transportation When choosing a place to live, consider transportation costs--fuel, commute, and the wear-and-tear on your vehicle. As a general rule, living within 15 or 20 minutes of the workplace and doctors office can save a lot of fuel, travel time and lengthen the life of your vehicle. Lastly, include an estimate on the monthly budget spreadsheet of how much youre planning to allot for entertainment. That way, you can save up your "entertainment funds" for something bigger (like a vacation) or spend it on smaller perks. Its also important to save some for emergency funds as well, because cars break down and people do become ill. All of this and anything else you can think of as a potential cost should be included on the spreadsheet so youll have some idea of what youre going to spend before you have to spend it. As each month passes, simply update the spreadsheet to reflect actual costs.
