I Need to Make a Budget

by Justin Weinger on December 19, 2011

We’ll keep this post short and sweet since you’re liking finishing up your holiday shopping, and I wouldn’t want to keep you from the endless lines at your local mall!

Since we’re heading into 2012, I’m sure plenty of you are beginning to think about your New Year’s resolutions.  If you’re like most people, chances are your resolutions will involve either or both of the following things: money management and weight loss.

Obviously, I’m not here to help you with the latter, but if you’re hear for the former, I certainly can help.  If you catch yourself saying, “In 2012, I want to make a budget and stick to it!” then you my friend have come to the right place! 

(Trust me, it’s not as bad as it seems.  I promise!)

I’ve put together a simple budget format in Excel that has helped me — and will hopefully help you — take a lot of the “pain” out of creating and tracking a budget.  You can get the sample budget format by clicking here.

The format is pretty easy to follow and relatively self explanatory, however, if you would like some instructions to go along with the template, please check out my Sample Budget – Create a Budget in Excel with this Budget Format post.

If you have any questions related to the post or setting up a budget in general, please feel free to contact me via email or by leaving a comment on this page!
