the best budgeting spreadsheet

Get complete control over your budget in a matter of minutes.

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times:

 
So maybe you’ve downloaded a few budgeting apps. Or you’ve tried to make a spreadsheet yourself.
 
But still…
 
It’s hard to find something that really sticks with you, right?
 
You’re not alone.
 
Before we created our Budget Google Sheets, we received a lot of the same messages:
 
“I’m overwhelmed by all the budgeting software out there. It’s either too complicated or takes up too much of my time. After a week or two, I end up scrapping it altogether.”
 
or
 
“I want to be in control of my money, but I don’t want to spend hours doing it. I need something simple, straightforward, and easy to stick to.”
 
So we polled our readers and created an entire spreadsheet based on what matters most.
 
It’s not about overly-fancy and complicated software with graphs, charts, and tables.
 
It’s about a financial tool that you’ll actually use.
 
A tool that saves you time and money. A tool that keeps things simple, but carries a big impact.
 
So without further ado…

Meet the Easy Money Spreadsheet.

About These Budget Google Sheets:

 
Have you heard the saying time is money?
 
We feel that way about budgeting. It’s important, but it shouldn’t eat away at your precious time.
 
So our goal was to create a simple personal budget template that anyone could use.
 
You don’t need to be a financial wiz or math expert, you just need to be willing to spend a few minutes each week managing your financial life.
 
No hassle, no headache.
 
This budgeting spreadsheet includes 12 done-for-you templates and calculations that are automatically computed for you.
 

How to Use it:

 
Start by entering in your planned income in the left column. This is your guideline for what you plan to earn.
 
Budget Google Sheets
 
Next, move onto your expenses. There is room for over 20 expenses, so you don’t have to worry about running out of space.
 
As the month goes by, you’ll update the right columns with your actual income and actual expenses.
 
At the very bottom, you’ll notice that it automatically calculates your totals, so you’ll know exactly where you stand financially.

About The Bill Pay Checklist

 
Here’s a scenario that might sound familiar:
 
You sit down to create your budget.
 
You write down all your income and expenses. You’ve accounted for everything. …or so you thought.
 
Halfway through the month, you realize you forgot about a variable expense. Annoyed, you kick yourself for not remembering it.
 
Now you have to go back and adjust your budget.
 
Can you relate?
 
It’s an easy mistake.
 
So you asked, and we delivered.
 
Keeping up with your bill payments and budgeting go hand in hand. So when our customers asked for an easy way to track bills, we knew we had to include a bill pay checklist in these budget google sheets.
 
This is especially important for variable expenses that are so easy to forget about, including:
 
  • Subscription services
  • Gym memberships
  • Car insurance
  • Car registration
  • HOAs
  • Taxes

How to Use it:

 
Start by entering the name of the bill and monthly payment amount. Then, enter the date that it’s due and whether it’s auto-pay (Y/N).
 
Budget Google Sheets
 
As you make payments, you’ll click the checkbox under the appropriate month.
 
This makes managing your money a breeze, and at a quick glance you’ll know what’s due, when, and how much.
 

About The Debt Breakdown Worksheet

 
Paying off debt can feel like a complicated task.
 
Interest rates. Car loans. Credit cards. Student loans. Debt snowball. Debt avalanche. Repayment time. Etc. Etc. Etc.
 
Is it a tad overwhelming?
 
This debt breakdown worksheet takes you back to the basics.
 
And it focuses on what’s really important:
 
Staying motivated on your debt-free journey.
 

How to Use it:

 
List your debts and their starting balances. As you make payments, you’ll see the balance automatically decrease.
 
Budget Google Sheets
 
By the end of the year, you’ll know exactly where you started and how far you’ve come.
 
Whenever you feel overwhelmed by your debt, you can look back to see how much progress you’ve made.
 
 

About The Savings Tracker

 
Let’s face it.
 
Saving money for the sake of saving money doesn’t usually work for most of us.
 
We need to have strong financial goals in place and the ability to visualize our progress.
 
So what are your goals?
 
Do you want to build an emergency fund? Save for a vacation? Buy a car?
 
This savings tracker puts an emphasis on the “why” and lets you track your progress.
 

How to Use it:

 
It comes with a pre-listed set of goals at the top.
 
You can start by customizing your budget google sheets with your own financial goals. For example, you might want to change the vacation section to “down payment on a home.”
 
Budget Google Sheets
 
Once you pick your goals, then you’ll type in how much you’d like to save.
 
As you save money every month, the savings tracker will automatically update to let you know how much you’ve saved and how much you have left.

How To Know if These Budget Google Sheets Are Right For You

couple budgeting using google sheets
 
If you’ve spent any time online researching how to better your financial life, then you know it all starts with a budget.
 
But even when you know budgeting is important, you might not be clear on how to make one.
 
You’re not alone:
 
According to research, 25% of people say they want more knowledge about budgeting.
 
Fortunately, there are plenty of different tools and templates out there to help you.
 
Now I know what you’re thinking.
 
How do I know if this one is right for me?
 
To answer your question, you’ll like this tool if…
 
  • You value simplicity. We wanted you to be able to understand each box in this budget sheet, so we kept it simple.
 
  • You value ease-of-use. Even when you understand every feature in your worksheet, you won’t stick to it if it’s a chore to fill out. To make it a budget you can actually stick to, we made it easy to use.
 
  • You want to modify the template to fit your life. Personal finance is personal, so the ability to add or delete rows, change colors, and make adjustments is important. Your template should change to fit your budget, not the other way around.
 
  • You like that it’s available online. You want to be able to edit your budget anywhere, anytime, from any device.
 
  • It fits into your budget. As with any purchase, you have to decide if it makes sense financially. When you manage your money wisely, this tool will easily pay for itself.

Great spreadsheet!

My problem has never been paying my bills; it's always about unnecessary spending and being a little too swipe happy. I needed a template that would help me spend wisely, not just pay off debt. I am still in the "baby steps" with these budget google sheets, but I am addicted to it!

Thank you

Seriously wish I had this earlier in my life - I wouldn't have dug myself into credit card debt and would have established a savings account much earlier in my life. But now, with the help of this tool I've set up a savings, checking that is for my "fun budget" and I've started budgeting. I would always wonder where my money went - definitely not something you should do as a 30 year old woman.
