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.

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.

I use a measuring wheel. I never use a tape measure any more. Tapes are too slow and usually only measure up to thirty-five feet. The measuring wheel can measure to one thousand feet and it costs the same as a big tape measure. Measuring wheels are usually made by the same companies that make tape measure, like Lufkin or Stanley, and they dont break as often as tape measures. Once you use a measuring wheel, you probably wont go back to a tape measure. I used to use the infra-red measuring device but I find them way too inaccurate. Usually, I measure before I start counting things like windows. Once I begin to count windows and molding, I make note of anything that will add or take away time, which means adding to the cost or lessening the cost. When I count windows, I make three columns, one for windows that are located below eight feet, one column for windows below fifteen feet, and one for windows twenty feet and above. This also applies to molding or anything else heights above eight feet, like dormers, ceiling medallions or whatever.

For instance you may have the responsibility of designing a report that alludes to figures generated by your company. Using both MS Excel and Word you will be able to combine the best of both products when compiling reports. It is just as straightforward moving MS Excel documents to MS Word files as it is when pasting charts into PowerPoint slides. You have the option to keep the same formatting when pasting your spreadsheets or if you have a special design that you would like your charts to blend with you can use the Match Destination Table Style function. As in PowerPoint you can also add links to Ms Word documents that readers can click on to access your spreadsheets. The ability of MS Excel to work in conjunction with other MS products ensures that information presented via your spreadsheets can be successfully shared between clients and colleagues.

The most important thing I always keep in mind when creating a new Excel work book or worksheet is I NEVER assume that I will not want to add in new formulas or data to the spreadsheet because it is more than likely I will. With this is the forefront of your mind I would always spend around 80% of my time planning the spreadsheet and only 20% of my time implementing it. If you have not carried out spreadsheet design in this way before it may seem a little over the top, extreme or way out, or even inefficient, but the return on the investment of this time planning is extreme and way out also. Believe me it is quickly paid back over a very short amount of time. Once you have used this method and spend most of your time planning, the actual planning of the Excel spreadsheet in itself gets easier and more efficient. As we know the best return of investment to is to carry out an action once, and then reap the rewards over and over again by re using this action. In Excel an obvious example would be to create a macro that automates some activity you carry out on a regular basis or to create a template that will be re- used time and time again. This is my aim with this approach to spreadsheet building. To really plan the spreadsheet, and dont be afraid to spend a decent amount of time on it. My advice to you would be try this out on your next spreadsheet even if it seems a bit alien. Let me know how you find this approach to spreadsheet building.

You can add more data if you would like or even use an already existing spreadsheet. The choice is completely up to you; however the steps to reformat the column widths are all the same as you will soon see. The next step is to highlight the columns that you want to reformat. To reformat the columns we are using in our example, using the month names, you need to click on the column header labeled "A". Now hold down the "shift" key and click the column header labeled "L". In other words you are clicking the first column and the last column. If you chose to use your own spreadsheet, your columns that you use may be different. You could also click on column header "A" and holding down the left mouse button, drag the cursor over top of the final column, in this case "L", and let go of the mouse button. Either way is fine.

After you have spent some time collecting figures and transforming them into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet you may need to present your workbook to clients and colleagues. Thanks to the huge array of features offered by the programme, you can design your workbooks in many different forms. Some entrepreneurs prefer information to be presented in straightforward tables, while others benefit from the varied functions of the software and they create coloured pie charts to reflect the data. Whichever way you choose to present information, you are likely to find that MS Excel is the backbone of many workplace documents that require analysis and presentation of data. A great feature of the product is that is has been designed to help you produce workbooks that can be easily moved to other applications. For instance, if you have recently put-together a spreadsheet that shows which departments are underperforming, you may wish to transfer information to other MS products.

A volatile function is one that re-calculates every time a work sheet changes. These include NOW(), TODAY(), OFFSET functions. If you use multiple or large amounts of these in a work book it will eventually start to slow it down. 5. Avoid Unnecessary Complex Formulas. One thing I have learned by developing spread sheets solutions for users is they (eventually) want to see all of the workings out of a formula. For example a typical sales formula of =(Price*SalesQuantity)-(Price*SalesQuantity)*Discount+(Price*SalesQuantity)*Tax Users will want to know the Sales Value Totals, the Discounted Totals and the Sales Tax Value displayed is separate columns. This is where we can break down the formula components into smaller formulas in their own columns or what we call helper columns. If you can increase transparency of calculations it will make the logic of the spreadsheet easier for users to follow resulting in less queries.
