Monthly Budget Template

It can be hard to figure out exactly how much money you spend each month. Creating a budget can help you plan ahead to learn how you can save money for important things in your life. Managing your finances can be stressful and difficult to understand. Print out our FREE Monthly Budget Template to help get you started. It is much easier to see everything once it is written down.

It also allows you to see if there are any drastic changes in your monthly bills. I know that many credit card companies and other places will add on additional costs that I would have missed if it did not write it down and compare to previous months.

Are you looking to save money on your grocery bill each month? My family and I have been wasting a TON of money on food, and I know it is because I do not use a meal plan. Recently, I came across the $5 Meal Plan. It only costs $5 a month and you will get meal plans sent straight to you along with a shopping list for those meals. WOW! Could it get an easier?

Once everything is laid out you will clearly see where the majority of your money is going. Although you cannot change your mortgage payment amount you will be able to cut costs elsewhere. Some categories to take a look at include:

Monthly Budget – You will receive 1 spreadsheet with a tab for each month. You can then track your monthly income and expenses by inputing your information. This will help you to take a detailed look at your income and expenses to learn where your money is going and how you can cutback to start saving more money each month.

Each month also comes with a graph that will show you your monthly spending, income and savings. Plus, there is also a percentage of income spent each month so that you can see how you are managing your money.

Yearly Summary – This tab will provide you with each month’s income and expenses along with the difference. You can quickly view which month’s you spend more money and add in a note if there was a larger expense that month. This is automatically calculated based upon your monthly budget information.

Expense Spending Summary – This sheet will allow you to see the percentage of expenses of your entire year. It also breaks it down into a graph so that you can easily view which expenses are costing you the most amount of money.

In order to get ahead with your finances and increase your savings you may need to find extra income. Whether you are looking for part-time work or a full-time job I highly recommend checking out starting a blog. Whenever I first started my blog I had no idea that it would turn into a business nor did I ever imagine being able to earn a full-time income.

        1. Hi! No, you do not need a passsword to edit it. Are you opening it in excel? You should be able to click ‘Enable Editing’ at the top. Please let me know if you have any other problems. I can email it to you if you are unable to edit it! 🙂

  7. Hi I recently purchased the editing version for google drive, and it says the link is unavailable. Can you help me with this?

  8. Hello,

    Thanks for sharing!

    I use a budget spreadsheet which I found online and which has been working for me perfectly. I also use an app to track my daily expenses.

    I think, now I know budgeting and keeping track of my expenses is what’s helping me save money and get out of debt.

  9. When it comes down to creating a budget I get so confused and don’t know where to start or how to create one. I don’t understand how to fill in the “budget amount” and the ” actual amount”. When I am creating a budget I write down exactly how much everything I pay down to the penny, lol. Can you help me please?

    1. Hey Aurora, so the budget amount is the amount you are budgeting for it to be, and the actual amount can either be the same or vary, so let’s say you budget for your mobile bill to be $50 but it ends up being $60. Then the actual amount would be $60. You can then review and adjust your budget accordingly.

  10. I love your Budget book for 2017 , it really is great and I was wondering if oyu are going to do one for 2018 for my budget book , if so can you please email the new budget free printable paper work so I can print it out please.

  11. I purchased the monthly budget spreadsheet and I haven’t been able to download it and I’m also not able to log in because I don’t remember my password and I tried to reset but I have received an email yet… Not sure what to do

    1. Hi Nicole, the monthly budget spreadsheet would have been sent to your email. When you click on the link you get taken to the Google Docs link, you will need to click “File” and download it to your own Drive before you able to use and edit it.

  12. Perfect format to teach our clients how to budget. Would love to have the editable version to tweek to our needs.

    Thank you,
