Introduction

Welcome! Your budget has a built-in guide that you can use instead of these instructions. In the top-right corner of every page you’ll find an INFO (i) cell:

  1. Hover the mouse over the INFO (i) to read a guide to the page.
  2. Fill in only the cells that are HIGHLIGHTED for you.
  3. For useful tips Read Notes to cells that have a black corner.

NOTE: We recommend using your budget at 75% zoom (see the dropdown at the top).

How To Complete Your Budget:

  1. Enter the Start & End date of your Paycheck.
  2. Enter the types of Income & Spending (e.g, INCOME: ‘Salary’, ‘Bonus’, ‘Business Income’; EXPENSES: ‘Groceries’, ‘Eating Out’, ‘Transport’, ‘Fuel’, ‘Clothes’; BILLS: ‘Electricity’, ‘Gas’, ‘Internet’, ‘Water’ etc.).
  3. Enter Planned amounts of Income & Spending for the period (highlighted).
