Virtually any expense you have can be put into one of these categories. So your worksheet should have plenty of space or data entry "cells" within these major categories. Compare your Monthly Spend to a Standard Guideline. Once you put your numbers in, how do you compare to the national average or some other standard guideline? The budgeting worksheet should give you some idea of how you compare in each of the above categories. Then you can make some decisions if you are over or under spending in some areas. The beauty of using worksheets is not only to see where your money is going but to see how you compare to a standard guideline.
Not surprisingly, most people want to budget to pay-off their debt. Try to find a budgeting worksheet that actually helps you do that! A really good budgeting worksheet should have some capability to organize those debts and give you some options on how to pay them off as quickly as possible. The worksheets themselves can not pay-off the debt, you still need to do that part! But the worksheet should allow you to shift money around on paper (computer screen) so that you can see the financial impact on your budget. Giving up a small amount of spending in your discretionary categories and applying some of that money to your debt load will dramatically improve your financial situation. Before you know it, you will be able to apply that extra money to your new goals - without going into debt!
You can find several varieties of a budgeting worksheet online that you can print or use as a template in one of your existing programs. Even if you just use it to get ideas, it can be a big help when you sit down to create a money management plan. While not everyone has the same income and expense circumstances, this type of worksheet is a great place to start. If you do find a budgeting worksheet that you like, you can simply add categories to it or replace the ones you will not use with your own items. For example, many of these worksheets that you will find online have a place for investment income but if you do not have any investments to track either ignore that category or replace it with one of your own.
