NOTE: Updated (more advanced) version of this budget spreadsheet is now available – Budget Template Update
I have been tracking my own finances via google spreadsheets for YEARS. Yes, I have dabbled in the online budget trackers (mint.com, and a few others) but nothing kept me on track nearly as well as a good old fashioned DIY google spreadsheet budget tracker.
Friends have asked me to share my budget tracking template with them so many times and I always had good intentions to do so, however I also wanted to be able to walk them through how I use it before sending it over. Guess what? I created a video tutorial for everyone to access and utilize their own copy of my google spreadsheet budget tutorial!
My budget spreadsheet includes monthly income and expense budgeting/planning and tracking, as well as summary tabs to view your income, expenses, and total spending month over month for an entire year.
What’s great is that this google spreadsheet document is mostly formula driven, so all you have to do is input your expenses and income line items each month, then the spreadsheet populates the charts and summary tabs automatically for you!
If you are curious to learn more, definitely check in the video tutorial below.
Hopefully this is helpful – let me know what you think!
