Here you select the month for which you are budgeting. There is a drop down menu to make it easy, or you can just type it in.
Here you can list out your income. You can either lump you sources together or like in the example below, list out individual paychecks.
Fill in the expected amount for your budget and then later come in and fill out the actual amount you received.
You have the option of clicking through to find the dates you are looking for, or you can type them out in a mm/dd/yy format.
Here is where you will list expenses out with how much you are budgeting for each. You do not have to use the date field if you don’t want, but I use it for due dates or when I plan to spend the money.
Example, I listed out my 4 planned grocery trips.
You can use this section as a continuation of the expenses section or you can use it as a surprise expense category.
Example, I listed out my budgeted miscellaneous expenses, then added extra money spent that I didn’t plan for.
Here is a break down of your totals. The income you planned for, and what you actually received. Expenses budgeted for, and what you actually spent.
The remaining category is what you have left over to save, apply to goals, or pay down debt.
