Free Personal Budget Template
Keeping track of your spending habits can have great benefits long term for your financial stability. When starting on your journey it is important to know what you can and can’t afford.

How To Use A Budget
- Download excel file using link below.
- Input Expenses and income using the predefined fields
- Customize the spreadsheet to fit your specific needs
- Evaluate monthly to figure out where to cut costs
Simply downloading the budget and inputting your expenses will not lead to better finances on it own. You must scrutinize the costs to really get the most value out of it. Too many people live beyond their means and justify excessive subscriptions and other purchases. Think long term, $1,000 tomorrow feels a lot better than a few indulgences today.
As you start to trim costs in your personal budget you can save more and more of your income in various ways. For instance an automatic savings transfer from your main account daily can add up quick with minimal risk. Increase the transfer amount and increase your annual savings. $2 a day may not seem like much, but after a full year of this you would have $730 to move into the next year with and so on. Now imagine if you could save $50 a day!
